NieR: Automata The End of YoRHa Edition is the Nintendo Switch version of NieR: Automata, an award-winning post-apocalyptic action RPG that has achieved deep-rooted popularity around the world.
The distant future…
Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing a new type of threat: weapons known as “machine lifeforms.” In the face of this insurmountable threat, mankind is driven from Earth and takes refuge on the Moon.
As 2B, a member of the newly organized android military force YoRHa, players will immerse themselves in a ferocious battle to take back the planet.
Players will switch between using melee and ranged attacks in battle against hordes of enemies and challenging bosses across a variety of open field maps. The tight controls and incredibly fluid combat are simple to learn for newcomers while offering plenty of depth for more experienced action gamers. Players can perform high-speed battle actions-combining light and heavy attacks-and switch through an arsenal of weaponry while evading enemies with speed and style.
NieR: Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their battle to reclaim the machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machines.
2B (YoRHa No. 2, Type B)
A blade…with a quiet volition.
An all-purpose battle android deployed as a member of the automated infantry squad, YoRHa. She is equipped with a sword for close-quarters combat, and can attack from range using the “Pod” tactical support system. Members of YoRHa forgo names and are referred to only by their codes.
9S (YoRHa No. 9, Type S)
A soul…and an ephemeral kindness.
Though he has the ability to attack, this YoRHa android specializes in research missions and excels in collecting information, mainly by hacking. Within YoRHa, 9S is comparatively varied in his emotional expressions and has a kind personality.
A2 (YoRHa Type A, No. 2)
A vortex…of the past and hatred.
The Type A is a YoRHa prototype model that is no longer in use. She specializes in close-range attacks. She was operated on a trial basis in the process of developing official models such as 2B and 9S. Personality-wise, she has little to say and always acts independently.
Beautifully Desolate Open-World
The game seamlessly joins together hauntingly beautiful vistas and locations with no area loading. The environments are rendered in 60fps and contain a wealth of sub-events in addition to the main storyline.
Elements of an RPG
Players will obtain a variety of weapon types, level up in battle, learn new combat skills, and customise a loadout that caters to their playstyle.
Utilise the Pod Support System to Assist In and Outside of Battle
Pods can attack the enemy in both manual and lock-on modes. They can also assist outside of battle, such as allowing the player to glide through the air. Pods can be enhanced throughout the game, with upgrades including new attack methods and variations.
