One of the most anticipated games this year, Nier: Automata has been developed by an all-star team consisting of producer Yosuke Saito (DRAGON QUEST X / NIER), director YOKO TARO (Drakengard / NIER), character designer Akihiko Yoshida from CyDesignation, Inc. (FINAL FANTASY XIV / BRAVELY DEFAULT), game designer Takahisa Taura from PlatinumGames Inc. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance), and composer Keiichi Okabe from MONACA, Inc. (TEKKEN / Drakengard 3 / NIER). A star studded team, isn’t it?
Though the black box is gorgeous, the standout item in this edition is a highly detailed figurine of YoRHa 2B, the protagonist. YoRHa 2B is one of the three playable characters in the game. It is an all-purpose battle android. The 64-page hardback art book is quite stunning too and so is the steel book case designed by Akihiko Yoshida, who is well known for his work on Final Fantasy series. His work has been praised by top outlets like Kotaku and IGN. Soundtracks from Nier and Nier: Automata composed by the brilliant, Keiichi Okabe, is part of the Black Box Edition. The original soundtrack from Nier was highly praised; reviewers noted it as one of the best video game soundtracks of the year, praising the originality of the compositions and the beauty of Emi Evans’ vocal work.
