Combat Android 2B Stars In New NieR: Automata Switch Trailer

2b Nier Automata

Square Enix and PlatinumGames’ masterpiece NieR: Automata launches on Switch in early October alongside some exclusive costumes, and Square is reintroducing the game’s central characters to the world before we make our journey to the future to fight a war with the machines.

Today, we get to meet 2B (or YoRHa No.2 Type B, whatever you prefer!), the game’s main protagonist — a combat android who knows her way around a sword and serves YoRHa. She partners up with 9S, a scanner-type android, to help reclaim Earth from the machines who inhabit the planet.

Of course, this is a Yoko Taro game, and things aren’t that simple. From the trailer’s philosophical narration to Keiichi Okabe’s incredible score, there’s just enough of a tease here for those who’ve never got to experience the world of NieR before. Plus there are some flashes of gameplay which looks pretty smooth to our untrained eyes!

We also get another brief look at a few of the exclusive costumes coming to the game’s Switch release. 2B’s Pod skins look to be based on characters Mama and Carrier from the mobile game NieR: Re[in]carnation. Check out the trailer and the costumes below!
