While the production of the NieR: Automata Ver 1.1a anime suffered from issues and delays, this doesn't mean we aren't getting more. 

During a livestream from Japan, we got the welcome announcement that a second cour is coming after the end of the first, albeit we don't know exactly when.

This announcement perhaps shouldn't be surprising considering that the NieR: Automata Ver1.1a anime is arguably one of the best adaptation of a video game that we've seen in a while. In the west.

Not only it's highly-appreciated by the fans, but it also sparked several collaborations in Japan, including one with the convenience store chain Lawson, one with a chain of public baths, and the pop-up stores at the Loft department stores.

NieR: Automata is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Back in April, we heard that it has sold 7.5 million copies worldwide across all platforms, which is certainly flattering. While we don't have specific information for now, its developers seem rather confident that another NieR game will be coming at some point.

Win a Switch OLED!!
