As reported by Famitsu (via Twinfinite), NieR: Automata and Drakengard director Yoko Taro has been at the SEA Summit in Singapore talking about his hopes to one day make an "adult video".

Whether something has been lost in translation remains unclear, but it seems as though one medium Taro would like to explore is a far cry from his work in gaming:

"I think this may be off-putting, but I'd like to make an adult video," so the translation reads. "I think of it as something I'd like to at least make once in my lifetime."

Taro also said that he'd be up for making a sequel to either Nier: Automata or Drakengard, although he'd need to secure funds to realise either. In particular, he already has ideas about how he'd approach a new Nier game:

"I think I'd imagine a Nier: Automata sequel that everyone is thinking about, then make something that is not that. I'm going to ruin it, is what I'm thinking."

Nier: Automata launched earlier this year, and we liked it very much, so here's hoping he gets the funding needed to explore his ideas further.
