When rumors about the anime adaptation had surfaced online, fans were skeptical about the development, arguing that the story of the game was too complex to be adapted properly into an anime.

Nier: Automata is a 2017 action role-playing game developed by PlatinumGames and published by Square Enix. It tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their battle to reclaim the machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machines.

In the game players take the role of these combat androids from the YoRHa units across an open world. The story requires multiple playthroughs, each unlocking additional story elements.
