Nier: Automata is one of those brands that is instantly recognisable. The role-playing game has become a top-selling machine under the direction of Yoko Taro and the other IP executives.

The official synopsis of the game reads: 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.
