The trailer lasts 43 seconds, and it opens with a speech by the YoRHa Commander encouraging the troops ahead of a final offensive against the machine lifeforms. The speech is intertwined with previously unseen scenes of 2B, 9S, and A2 alongside other androids and machine lifeforms.

“Remember, we will not give up on the pain of having our homeland taken from us.

With the success of this operation, we will end this war here and now.

Glory to mankind!”
