NieR: Automata Meets Amazarashi in New Official Music Video

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.

    Just watched the music video just fine from Romania. So either they lifted the IP block, or it’s blocked just in certain areas.

    “still blocked in the USA”
    Isn’t Japanese music quite often blocked in the USA?
    Seemed to be the case from my experience when sharing music with US friends at least.

    Is there anywhere else the video is up other than Youtube?

    Not the biggest fan of the song, feels like quite a departure from the ‘sound’ of the rest of the OST.
    This game is going to be something special though.

    To be clear, this is just a collab. Keiichi Okabe is doing the OST of the game again,
