Nier: Automata has set the stage for its first proper foray into the world of anime next year, and fans have gotten a new look at what to expect from more characters with a series of new trailers and posters showing off! The Square Enix franchise has exploded in popularity thanks to the successful launch of Nier: Automata a few years ago, and fans have become much more interested in the world of the series as a result. It’s made the idea of a full-blown anime adaptation all the more exciting, as it also means we’ll see some returning faces.
NieR: Automata Ver1.1a is slated to release in January as part of the winter 2023 anime schedule, and fans have been able to see how many of the games’ recurring characters have made the leap into the full anime adaptation. The latest set of posters and trailers has showcased more of the cast with a new trailer for the returning Adam and Eve, voiced by Daisuke Namikawa and Tatsuhisa Suzuki, respectively. You can watch the trailer in the video above and the poster below.

Humanity has been driven from Earth by mechanical beings from another world. In a final attempt to take back the planet, the human resistance sends a force of android soldiers to destroy the invaders. Now a war is raging between machines and androids… A war that could soon reveal a long-forgotten truth of the world.”
