New trailer and visual revealed
Less than two days after our introduction to Adam and Eve, another stunning character-based visual and trailer for the upcoming NieR:Automata Ver1.1a anime has dropped out of the sky, this time starring Atsumi Tanezaki (Anya in SPY x FAMILY) as Lily.
Based on the groundbreaking RPG created by Yoko Taro, NieR:Automata Ver1.1a is directed by Ryouji Masuyama (BLEND-S), who also serves as series composer, at studio A-1 Pictures, with character designs and chief animation direction by Jun Nakai (GATE) and music by MONACA (Summer Time Rendering).
Square Enix, who publishes the original game, describes it as such:
The distant future…
Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing a new type of threat: weapons known as “machine lifeforms.” In the face of this insurmountable threat, mankind is driven from Earth and takes refuge on the Moon.
The Council of Humanity organizes a resistance of android soldiers in an effort to take back their planet. To break the deadlock, the Resistance deploys a new unit of android infantry: YoRHa .
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...
The anime adaptation is currently scheduled to premiere sometime in January 2023.
