The NieR: Theatrical Orchestra 12020 was canceled due to the pandemic earlier this year, but fans will get to check it when the Blu-ray releases later this month. Square Enix released a couple of sample videos that show scenes with characters from NieR: Automata and NieR Replicant.
Since the concert couldn’t take place as planned, Square Enix filmed the show without an audience on March 20, 2020. The Blu-ray release will feature over two hours of music, voice acting, and more. The two sample videos come with English closed captions, so don’t forget to turn those on!
The first video features a scene from the show called Words (Nier, Yonah, Grimoire Weiss) & Grandma:
