Here is a message from director Yoko Taro on the announcement:

Square Enix has asked me for a comment to mark the announcement of NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition.

Now that you mention it, NieR: Automata was first released on February 23, 2017 in Japan, March 7, 2017 in America, and March 10, 2017 in Europe.

I have noticed something bizarre and fascinating about these numbers.

If you write these dates out in long-form as 20170223, 20170307, and 20170310, then add all three numbers together, you get 60510840.

If you take that total, split the digits in two down the middle, making 6051 and 0840, then subtract the second number from the first… unbelievably you get 5211!!

That’s right, a number completely devoid of all meaning!

Just like life really, isn’t it? Over and out.
