Robots have assumed control over the world! Well not simply completely yet, but it is actually the case in one game.Straying off from the fantasy real., Square Enix swings to the technological world of robots. Set in an identical situation from Nier (PS3, Xbox 2010), Nier: Automata is a spin-off of the Drakengard series initially released for the PS2 in 2003.

In spite of the fact that the full form is yet to be released, the demo is accessible now at different stages. The story spins around 2B, otherwise called YoRHa No. 2 Model B, a female battle android and 9S or YoRHa No. 9 Model S, a male battle android. Their main goal is to work as an inseparable unit to shield humankind from machine control.

Teaming up with PlatinumGames, it shows up the developers have made a kind of tribute or return to a previous game released in 2013, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance featuring Raiden a ninja cyborg (Metal Gear Solid series). From the character outlines brandishing silver hair to swordplay fight styles, such qualities are very recognizable in both games.

In the demo, players get sucked quickly into the post-apocalyptic era where human life is running insufficient. 2B is joined by a baby robot acting as a sidekick, helping her in fights by shooting down the opponent. With her kindred companion, 9S, the two battles tremendous machines to stop the war amongst man and machine.

In the last scene of the 30-minute gameplay, they are compelled to fight against a huge Gundam-looking robot, when 9S feels free to makes an attempt to strike at the enemy. Not able to withstand the look of her harmed partner, 2B lashes out at the evil automation with all her might, overcoming it finally. The closure demonstrates the two heroes gazing at each other in relief, as they hold two dark cryptic cubes in their hands.

Nier: Automata is a JPRG game created by PlatinumGames and distributed by Square Enix. The full version is planned to be released in February 2017 in Japan, followed by a Western release in March 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
