Today Square Enix released a brand new TV commercial of its upcoming action JRPG NieR: Automata.

The brief trailer, that will be aired in Japan, is partly live action and partly in-game, and definitely mirrors the world of the game. It’s creepy but beautiful, melancholic, but somehow uplifting.

The video is also perfectly complemented by the music, and by the voice of protagonist YoRHa 2B saying “We’re born for the sake of being broken.”

You can check it out below.

If you want to see more about the game, you can also enjoy the latest trailer, and a large chunk of new gameplay. A translation of the first review from Famitsu is also available. Last, but not least, today Square Enix released an hilarious video starring Director Yoko Taro.

NieR: Automata will release in Japan for PS4 on February 23rd, in North America on March 7th, and in Europe on March 10th. A PC version on Steam has also been scheduled for this year, but no specific launch window has been announced for that one just yet.
