On paper it fits but is also worrying at the same time, most gamers seem to welcome the process of adapting NieR Automata into anime with open arms. The project, which will carry the name “NieR Automata Ver.1.1a” which indicates a slight change in the story in it, does look stunning so far, especially the way it handles the details of the characters. After briefly showing off the two main characters – 2B and 9S, who will indeed play a lot of stories in the first half of the game, now the third teaser has been shared.
Instead of focusing on A2, this third trailer shows off the figure of Commander, who will be voiced by Chiaki Kano. Although in this teaser only he is seen, the anime also confirms two other VAs – Keiko Isobe as Operator 60 and Meari Hatsumi as Operator 210. It is not clear how important the role of these two operators will be in the story of NieR Automata Ver.1.1a which will indeed be slightly different. One thing is for sure, the studio in charge – A-1 Pictures has so far shown quite promising visuals.
This new teaser for the NieR Automata anime focuses on the figure of Commander.
NieR Automata ver 1.1a itself is planned to start airing in January 2023. How about you? Interested in following the series so far?
