Blik-0 1946_image(1)When you think of Nobuo Uematsu you probably think of music. Uematsu is best known for composing scores for Final Fantasy, but after leaving Square Enix he worked on other games such as Unchained Blades, The Last Story and later this year Hometown Story from Natsume.


Blik-0 1946 is a different kind of project for Uematsu, it’s a story about a robot that begins to experience emotions and feelings as he’s around humans. Nobuo Uematsu wrote Blik-0 and composed new songs that go along with the story.


Blik-0 1946 will be released on iTunes in August and it will be fully localized into English. Acttil will publish Blik-0 in North America.

  • A.I?
    liking the robot design

  • Suicunesol

    I don’t understand. Is it an album with accompanying artwork in the CD?

  • Warukyure

    For a second there, I almost thought it was the robot from Time of Eve.

  • It looks cute, though I swear a read a similar story in high school. But it seems like any story with robots involves exploring how they understand and relate to human emotions.

  • JustThisOne

    I love robots, beep beep! <3 Since this will be localized, I'll be looking forward to this!

  • Romancer Ecclesia

    Wow… he really wrote that book he talked about the year before o.o

  • Freud_Hater

    Story’s already been done several times (A.I or I, Robot, for example) and the design of the robot is basic and pretty boring.

    I’ll pass, though I guess kids could enjoy it…

  • HappyOnion

    classic story of an awakening a.i conveyed in a simpler fashion.. cant be mad at that at all~ love the art,simple as it is.

  • piichan

    so it’s a musical novel?

  • Neophoton

    So like a musical novel of sorts? I’d get it.

  • pekikuubik

    For anyone asking what this is, it’s probably similar to Yasunori Mitsuda’s (and Masato Kato’s) Kirite, where the music accompanies the story that’s in a small book or booklet.

    Incidentally, if you haven’t listened to Kirite yet, you should. It’s basically the most beautiful music Mitsuda has ever composed. Yes, even better than Chrono Cross.

  • Chow

    I don’t mean to downplay this, because I’m sure it’ll be good. But isn’t “robot that feels human emotions” a huge trope when it comes to robot stories? It sounds sort of derivative.

  • i dont really care if the story is cliche. im sure it will be be cute. and nobuo uematsu’s music. how could one not.

  • Bigabu Beaze

    This looks interesting! I hope he writes about a character that pilots a run down mech.

  • Warboss Aohd

  • enorka miho
