Square Enix has announced that they will be releasing a NieR: Automata Arranged and Unreleased Tracks album of music on December 20 of this year. Unfortunately that’s only the Japanese release date and Western audiences may have to wait longer in order to get it in our part of the world.
Nier Automata won a lot of praise when it came out earlier this year, the story of Yoko Taro and the gameplay of Platinum Games winning a lot of fans and critics over as a perfect combination. Now, even though the Nier Automata soundtrack was released several months before, Square Enix is also releasing the NieR: Automata Arranged and Unreleased Tracks CD.
This CD will contain a number of newly-arranged and unreleased tunes for players to listen to, meaning that in addition to all of the new stuff, there will be familiar songs that are changed in a certain way.
There will be twenty tracks on the album, with 12 of them being the newly-arranged music and the remaining eight being unreleased tracks. You’ll be able to sample all of them over at the Japanese Square Enix website, and if you want to pre-order it you’ll be able to do it on Play-Asia.com. It’ll be available for 2,800 yen, which is about 25 bucks in American money.
If you want to save some money on the CD, you can enter the discount code PSLIFE, which saves you three bucks off of your order.
In addition to having great stories, Yoko Taro games also often have really good music to go along with them, so if you’re a Nier fan then you might want to try and get the CD as soon as it comes out, if you’re willing to import it.
Once again, the NieR: Automata Arranged and Unreleased Tracks album will be releasing on December 20, and you can sample it before you order it by heading to the Japanese Square Enix website.
