Square Enix has teamed up with popular Japanese alternative rock band Amazarashi to promote NieR: Automata.
The collaboration has resulted in a pretty fantastic music video themed after one of the key concepts in the game, which you can view above (it’s IP blocked to anyone outside of Japan, so you’ll need to use TOR or something to circumvent that. Here’s a mirror, thanks AlexHunt2).
The featured song, “Worthy of Life,” is the band’s latest single. Some fun tidbits for the making of the video: 200 dolls were used and destroyed via cutting, crushing, blowing up, etc. There was also a cameo doll based on NieR: Automata protagonist YoRHa No.2 Type B, which you can see towards the end.
You can find more information for the new single here on the official Amazarashi website. If you buy the limited edition version of the single, you’ll even get a download code for an “amazarashi-themed pod”, for YoRHa 2B.
NieR: Automata launches March 7th for PS4, with a PC release coming later this year. A demo for the game is available on PlayStation 4.
