NieR, NieR: Automata orchestral albums coming this fall

A recent VGMdb update has revealed Square Enix’s plans to release a set of orchestral arrangement albums for both NieR and NieR: Automata this fall.  Fans of the cult classic Drakengard spinoff series will have the option to purchase either album separately or to purchase both as part of a special box set.  While no arrangement team has been announced, listeners can expect to hear the somber and melodically-driven soundtracks by the the MONACA music team brought to new life in orchestral form.

Both the NieR: Gestalt & NieR: Replicant Orchestral Arrangement Album and the NieR: Automata Orchestral Arrangement Album will release on September 12 for 3,300 JPY (~$30) each, while a special box set containing both can be picked up for 8,000 JPY (~$73).  In the meantime, all three options are available for preorder through links provided on Square Enix’s official teaser site.

About the Author

Reilly Farrell is one part Bay Area electronic composer and one part capybara fanatic. He loves video game music and rodents of unusual size and wants the world to know how great they both are. His musical tastes are about as diverse and eclectic as a JRPG musical score - which might explain why so many of his favorite albums are JRPG soundtracks. Personal favorites include The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Legacy, The Legend of Dragoon, The Legend of Mana, and Katamari Damacy - which is also legendary.

  1. It looks like a special bonus disc of arrangements is also included in the box set. Just the Kanagawa orchestra is listed for the accompanying concert (Sept 17, info here: http://www.square-enix.co.jp/music/sem/page/nier/orchestra_concert/), so perhaps there will be no vocals at all.
