The 2017 action role-playing game, NieR: Automata, that was developed by PlatinumGames and produced by Square Enix is getting an anime adaptation! It was confirmed during a live broadcast in celebration of the game's 5th anniversary. More and more video games are being adapted into anime, including The World Ends with You that released in 2021, but this is one of the most exciting to be announced.
If you aren't familiar with the game already, the story is set in the distant future in a time of war between alien-created machines and human-crafted androids. But more so than anything, the story follows 2B, 9S, and A2 on their journey and all of the obstacles that come across their way. Since its release, NieR: Automata has been adapted into light novels and figures from the franchise, such as the 2B Nendoroid, and statues, such as the Prime 1 Studio NieR: Automata diorama statue of 2B, 9S, and A2, have been released.
The series is highly regarded, so it comes as no surprise that it is now inspiring an anime. Details about the NieR: Automata anime, such as staff and release date, have yet to be revealed. We will update this post when more information is announced by the official site or channels.
In addition to the announcement, a trailer and teaser visual for the upcoming NieR: Automata anime were released. You can check them both out now below!
