NieR: Automata soundtrack dated, composers revealed

Next month, Square Enix will release NieR: Automata, the PlatinumGames-developed sequel to the original NieR, for PlayStation 4.

The production company behind the original game’s popular score, Keiichi Okabe’s Monaca, have returned to create the soundtrack. Specifically, the composition team this time around comprises returnees Keiichi Okabe and Keigo Hoashi, as well as Monaca newcomers Kuniyuki Takahashi and Shotaro Seo. Vocalist Emi Evans will also reprise her role from the original.


Square Enix Music announced today that they will release the NieR -Automata- Original Soundtrack on March 29. Retailing for 3456 JPY, the album will feature some three discs of music from the game. In addition, a bonus 12cm CD featuring a secret sound source from the game will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To get a taste of what to expect, check out the three samples featured on the official site. The album can be pre-ordered from CDJapan now.
