New information from the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.

NieR: Automata

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has new details on NieR: Automata‘s characters and Japanese voice cast.

Get the information below.

Emil (voiced by Mai Kadowaki)

The same Emil that joined your party in the original NieR. He harbors latent magical power, but most of his memory is gone due to the long years that have passed.

Pod 042 and Pod 153 (voiced by Hiroki Yasumoto and Kaoru Akiyama)

Support units of the automated infantry squad, YoRHa. They provide long-distance attack and movement support.

YoRHa Infantry Squad Commander (voiced by Chiaki Kanou)

The person in charge of the YoRHa Infantry Squad and director of the “Bunker”—the base that floats in the satellite orbit. She is level and calm. It seems she has some sort of connection to YoRHa prototype A2.

Operator 60 and Operator 210 (voiced by Keiko Isobe and Mary Hatsumi)

The Bunker’s communications operators. They handle command transmission and information analysis for the YoRHa Infantry Squad. Their personalities differ based on the individual.

Adam (voiced by Daisuke Namikawa)

A silver-haired, young man of beauty whose true character is shrouded in mystery. He has a calm personality, but will take relentless action if it’s for his goal.

Eve (voiced by Tatsuhisa Suzuki)

Adam’s twin brother. He has a simple personality and doesn’t think about things too in-depth.

Devola and Popola (voiced by Ryoko Shiraishi)

Old-style android at the resistance camp who feel indebted to their model of machines that ran wild long ago. They’ll act as support to 2B and 9S.

Pascal (voiced by Aoi Yuki)

A machine life-form, but a pacifist nevertheless. She’s a highly intelligent machine with an interest in mankind and the the history of machine life-forms.

NieR: Automata will launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan on February 23. It is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC in early 2017 in North America and Europe.

Thanks, Famitsu and Famitsu.
