The NieR:Automata wiki last edited by TheChris on 01/13/18 03:16AM View full history


NieR: Automata is an action RPG directed by Yoko Taro and developed by Platinum Games and published by Square Enix. It aims to retain the originality of Nier while presenting more appealing gameplay. It is set in the same universe as Nier, but features a separate story in which robots are sent to reclaim Earth from an alien invasion after humanity was exiled to the Moon.

There are three main characters that feature as the events and story of the game progresses. They are listed below:

1. YoRHa No.2 Type B (2B)

- The main female character of the game. A member of special Android task force YoRHa, she is sent to Earth on a mission to return Earth to the humans that once inhabited it, and to destroy the robot menace that the alien invasion left behind.

2. YoRHa No.9 Type S (9S)

- The main male character of the game. Teaming up with 2B, the pair work together on their mission to reclaim Earth from the robots that now inhabit it.

3. YoRHa Type A No.2 (A2)

- A mysterious character of whom not much is known. A main character in the stage play preceding the game, she was once a member of YoRHa, but disappeared and became a wanted fugitive.

Several side characters also appear in the game:

4. YoRHa Commander

- Working from the Bunker, the orbital home of YoRHa, the Commander oversees your operations over the course of the game.

5. Operator 6O & 21O

- Servicing 2B and 9S respectively, these characters transmit mission information and conduct daily reports.

6. Adam and Eve

- The mysterious antagonists of the game, the "machine brothers" are elusive and extremely powerful.

Multiple Endings

One of NieR: Automata's defining characteristics is its use of multiple endings. There are 26 different endings in total; one for each letter of the English alphabet which makes up a part of the ending's title. A majority of these endings include various bad or joke endings where a character fails to complete a task or walks away from an objective. When a player triggers one of these endings, text will appear on screen describing the fate of a character and the credits will scroll by very quickly. Once one of these alternate endings is triggered, the player will be brought back to the main menu where they will be able to continue the story from their last save.

NieR: Automata has five main story endings: Routes A through E. After the player completes the first ending, Route A, a message signed by Square Enix PR will appear. The message thanks for the players for playing NieR: Automata and encourages them to play through the story again in order to see additional story elements and gameplay systems. With each subsequent play through, the player learns more about the main characters, the other androids, and the machines, in addition to seeing new events that weren't featured in the previous routes.
