That's "DEMO 120161128."

NieR: Automata

A demo for NieR: Automata, dubbed “DEMO 120161128,” will launch via the PlayStation Store on December 22 in Japan, Square Enix announced.

The demo of the Platinum Games-developed action RPG will primarily focus on its battle action gameplay. Save data from the demo won’t carry over to the full release.

When Square Enix announced the western release date for NieR: Automata, it said it would release a demo in the coming weeks, so the western PlayStation Stores may get the demo the same week.

NieR: Automata will launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan on February 23, in North America on March 7, and in Europe on March 10. A PC release is due out in 2017.
