NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition Listed by ESRB

It looks like NieR: Automata could be receiving the Game of the Year Edition treatment, if a leaked listing from US classification body the ESRB is to be believed. Pun-tastically dubbed the NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition (YoRHa being the top secret operation that android protagonists 2B and 9S are associated with), it's likely this will be a definitive version of the game with added content.

Presumably, this GOTY Edition would bundle NieR: Automata with its DLC, which includes new outfits and the 3C3C1D119440927 expansion, featuring coliseum battles, extra sub-quests and a boss fight with Square Enix's CEO. It's also possible that the improvements made to the Xbox One 'Become As Gods Edition' release (launched in June 2018) may also be included.

The ESRB listing states that the NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition will be heading to PlayStation 4 and PC, so it would stand to reason that this will be the best version of the game possible with all of the DLC bits chucked in for good measure. If this leak proves to be legitimate, that is. The ESRB is usually pretty reliable in this regard, so we'll keep our eyes peeled.

I dont get the hype with this game. I LOVE the first Nier, enough to say its my all time favorite. Nier Automata doesnt even touch it. In my opinion of course.

Can someone please explain to me the rabid hype over this game? I played and platinumed it, and while I thought it was decent, I certainly didn't find it to be all that memorable or that much of a standout amongst all the other games I've played. Did I just miss something here???

The game has some of the finest music you'll hear in a video game soundtrack. It rivals a FF game for best music. Gameplay I admit was repetative, but story, characters, and setting, and especially the ost, kept me enthralled and I felt compelled to plat it, which I gladly did.
