What is Nier: Automata Ver1.1a about?

The anime will be based on Yoko Taro’s unconventional yet truly endearing action RPG Nier: Automata. Crunchyroll has claimed streaming rights to the anime and we can expect the premiere of Nier: Automata Ver1.1a, the show’s formal title, sometime in January 2023. According to the official synopsis from Crunchyroll, Nier: Automata Ver1.1a’s story seems to stay relatively close to the game, although Taro recently mentioned in a video that there would be some alterations. Similar to the game the androids 2B and 9S will assist in the eradication of the machine lifeforms that have overrun the long-abandoned Earth. Nier: Automata (the game) has 26 diverse endings, and it mixes a range of distinct gameplay styles together throughout its narrative. As players traverse through the game for the first time, they notice new content and witness events from a new perspective, the narrative tackles some hefty thought-provoking subjects, and the player is challenged to consider his or her role in the story through the decisions they make.

Here is the official synopsis of Nier: Automata Ver1.1a (the anime)

“The distant future, 5012. The sudden aerial invasion of Earth by <Aliens> and their creations <Machine Lifeforms> led mankind to the brink of extinction. The surviving number of humans who took refuge on the moon to organize a counterattack using <android> soldiers to recapture Earth. However, the war reaches a stalemate as the <Machine Lifeforms> continue to multiply infinitely. In turn, humanity deploys a new unit of android soldiers as an ultimate weapon: YoRHa. Newly dispatched to Earth 2B joins 9S, the analyst currently stationed there, where amid their mission, they encounter a myriad of mysterious phenomena… This is the story of these lifeless <androids> and their endless fight for the sake of mankind.”

Nier: Automata Ver1.1a Trailers

At Eight and a half minutes long, Aniplex Online Fest has given us the most detailed look into the world of NieR: Automata. The video features interviews with the game’s creator Yoko Taro and the voice actors of 2B and 9S.

Are there any new characters in Nier: Automata Ver1.1a?

Damn right there is. One, in particular, that’s been making rounds across the web is Lily. Despite being an android resistance fighter, she is not a character from the NieR: Automata game. However, what makes her unique is that she is not new to the NieR franchise. The NieR: Automata prequel play, which debuted in 2015, was produced to advertise the game. During the game’s pre-production phase, six months were devoted to conceiving the play, which includes A2 and other android fighters like Lily. The anime may also explore A2’s characterization and possibly unite with A2. Because Lily has been included in the anime, this may serve as evidence to move away from the NieR: Automata plot a fair bit.
