Ayaka Suwa (A2):
The long-awaited anime adaptation… It makes me so happy and thrilled! A2 was on a rampage as a lone wolf in the game, but her demeanor and movement were very smooth and pretty, so I am also really looking forward to seeing how the anime depicts her! I’m very much fond of Nier’s beautiful, yet fragile worldview, so, with anticipation for directions unique to the style of anime, I will play the A2 living there powerfully!
“The machines lifeforms… I will kill them all.” A2 says. The new trailer is available on Aniplex’s official YouTube channel:
The game plot is described as:
NieR:Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their battle to reclaim the machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machines.
Humanity has been driven from the Earth by mechanical beings from another world. In a final effort to take back the planet, the human resistance sends a force of android soldiers to destroy the invaders. Now, a war between machines and androids rages on… A war that could soon unveil a long-forgotten truth of the world.
