Story of NieR: Automata
Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing their secret weapon: the machines. In the face of this insurmountable threat, the human race is driven from the earth and takes refuge on the moon.

The humans develop an army of android soldiers to fight back against the mechanical horde, but succeed only in slowing its advance. To break the deadlock, a new breed of android infantry is sent into the fray: the YoRHa squad.

In the forsaken wasteland below, the war between the machines and the androids rages on. A war that is soon to unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world…


You can already preorder the Steam version through SE's online store. The official Square Enix JP Youtube channel has also uploaded two videos from the upcoming game's sound track, which you can listen to here and here.

The game is beautiful! Best looking thing I've seen come from Square in a long while!

Now for that old Enix feel... still awaiting the return of Dragon Quest 7 also.

I didn't care much for the Xbox360 version of the first one. Didn't play the PS3 version because if I recall right, it's only in Japanese.... This one, though, I might pick up.
NieR on 360/PS3 were both in English.
The Japanese versions featured a different protagonist.

I've heard of Nier, but never seen or played it. However, watching that gameplay video with the beautiful graphics I'm definitely interested. Looks like I gotta check out the original on the PS3.

Check out the original Drakengard games too. They're directly related to NieR, with one of Drakengard 1's endings leading right into the NieR universe.
