Game designer and NieR game series creator Yoko Taro said in a Q&A session at the SEA Summit event in Singapore on October 13 that he would make a new work in the Drakengard (Drag-On Dragoon) series if a producer gave him money. He directed the statement to a Square Enix producer who was also present at the talk.
Taro also answered a question about what he would do with a possible new NieR title by stating that he would think of what people would expect from a new NieR game, and deliberately not do that. He went on to say that he would make a mess of the game.
When asked if he would consider making a movie based on a game, he said he would but it would require "finding someone with money." He also said that he wanted to make an adult video at least once in his life.
