Square Enix began streaming a trailer for its upcoming NieR:Automata game on Tuesday. The commpany first unveiled the video at its NieR concert and talk event on April 16.
The video introduces some of the cast:
- Yui Ishikawa as 2B
- Natsuki Hanae as 9S
- Ayaka Suwa as A2
The game is a follow-up to the 2010 NieR game, and reunites the director, producer, and composer. Freelance developer Taro Yoko (Drakengard series, NieR) will helm the project as director under PlatinumGames. Yosuke Saito (Dragon Quest X, NieR) is credited as producer, and Keiichi Okabe (Drakengard series, NieR, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero) will compose the music. Takahisa Taura (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Anarchy Reigns) will handle the game design, and Akihiko Yoshida (Bravely Second, Final Fantasy XIV) will design the game's characters.
The now-defunct Japanese game developer Cavia (Drakengard, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles) developed the original NieR game as a spinoff of the Drakengard series in 2010. Two versions of the game were released for two different consoles: Cavia released NieR Gestalt for the Xbox 360, and NieR Replicant for the PlayStation 3. NieR Replicant featured a different character design for the protagonist, and minor differences in the plot. NieR was the last game Cavia developed before being disbanded and absorbed into AQ Interactive Inc. in July 2010. Taro Yoko went on to direct Drakengard 3 under Access Games.
