Lore summary – From Drakengard to Nier: Automata
(SPOILER WARNING!) This video contains spoilers for the games Drakengard 1, Drakengard 2, Drakengard 3 and Nier: Gestalt/Replicant.
CC is available if you can’t decipher my mumbling.
This started out as just a project between me and my friend trying to piece together the story so-far in order to help out our mutual friend who has little to no knowledge of the Drakenier universe but it quickly got out of hand and so we decided to piece together this video in hopes of not only raising awareness of the series but also help the people that aren’t very knowledgable about the series. This is a series that I hold very dear to my heart and so I really don’t want people to overlook Nier: Automata as I believe it will bring the true gameplay and world-building that Yoko Tarou’s stories have been deprived of in the past. His past games aren’t exactly well-known in the West, mainly due to their conveluted plots but also due to the fact that they’re just not that great when you look past the story. But I am desperately hoping that Nier: Automata will be a turning point, which is why I am strongly opposed the idea of people sleeping on this game. As I mentioned in the video, you don’t actually have to know any of the lore in order to enjoy Nier: Automata but the people that are going into the game with no prior knowledge of the series will be missing out on over 11000 years of lore, and that’s just a bummer!
