Description Edit | History

From the manual of the English edition

It is the distant future. Humanity’s past glories are but a forgotten memory, its greatest achievements vanished into dust on the wind. The world that remains-a strange and savage place- is dying.

The few humans who remain now live a medieval existence, eking out what sustenance they can from a harsh and unforgiving land. Dark, twisted creatures known as Shades roam the world, bringing with them terror and death. Fear and chaos rule each day. As it did yesterday. As it will tomorrow.

In this world lives a modest, unassuming man and his young daughter. She has been infected by a deadly disease known as the Black Scrawl, and so her father has sworn to journey in search of a cure.

The adventure that ensues will be beyond anything he has ever experienced.

He will encounter Grimoire Weiss, an ancient book of almost unbelievable power who can use words as weapons. He will face off against Grimoire Noir, a supposed harbinger of the end times. And he will learn the truth behind both the legendary Sealed Verses, and the cursed Shades that hound his every step.

As the world collapses into chaos around him, as his very mind betrays him, the man will press on with a single, dim light flickering in his mind:

He will save his daughter. No matter what the cost.

More Information Edit | History

Trivia:

Four soundtracks were released for NIER: NieR Gestalt & Replicant Original Soundtrack, NieR Gestalt & Replicant 15 Nightmares & Arrange Tracks, Piano Collections Nier Gestalt & Replicant, and NieR Tribute Album -echo-. Three of the four soundtracks each feature a different grimoire from the game on the cover art.

Game director Yoko Taro requested that NIER’s soundtrack use a lot of vocal work and of the 43 tracks included on the original soundtrack only 9 do not have any vocals.

Emi Evans (singer) was asked to write her own lyrics in futuristic languages. Evans wrote songs in versions of Gaelic, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, English and Japanese where she then invented the words trying to imagine what they would sound like after 1000 years of drifting.
