New Character Video for ‘NieR: Automata Ver 1.1a’ Reveals Pascal

NieR: Automata’s upcoming anime has shrouded its characters in mystery since the show was announced. While those who have played the game are familiar with them, these characters will be completely new territory for others.

So far, the franchise has revealed 2B, 9S, and the Commander with promo videos and visuals. After these three, we now have another character who might remind you of Wall-E.

The latest promo video for the ‘NieR: Automata Ver 1.1a’ anime introduces Pascal, a highly intellectual machine.

Pascal is unlike any other machine that has been made. He is an intelligent one capable of understanding human emotions and their philosophy. Besides that, he seeks conversations with others and is curious about humankind and their ways.

Despite being machines, all the characters in this show are highly intelligent and possess unique personalities. Same is the case with Pascal, a pacifist who avoids fighting or taking part in war.

Moreover, he aims for peace between like-minded machine lifeforms that are from another world and constantly works towards it.

The franchise has also revealed a visual featuring Pascal as sun rays fall on him in a forest. This visual truly encaptures Pascal’s personality and energy.

I am really excited to see how the staff tweaks up all the characters to make it a bit different from the game but interesting at the same time. If they aren’t careful about the changes, the franchise might lose their gamer fans first.

The anime is slated for a January 2023 premiere, and the franchise will reveal more details soon.
