Square Enix Shares Official Guitar Cover of “City Ruins” from NieR:Automata

Square Enix has uploaded a new official cover on their music YouTube channel. Takanori Goto arranged and performed “City Ruins” from the beloved action JRPG NieR:Automata, initially composed by Keiichi Okabe. Additionally, Yohei “Billy” Horiuchi recorded and mixed the performance.

“City Ruins” is a pretty tranquil track in-game, though this cover instills it with a far more jovial and almost festive-sounding air, likely because of the choice of instrument.

NieR:Automata The End of YoRHa Edition is now available for Nintendo Switch worldwide. The first iteration of the game, simply NieR:Automata, is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox, and PC, with the Xbox version containing the colosseum DLC sans extra purchases.

The Switch version has a physical release with a reversible cover, and it is not a Cloud version. It includes all existing DLC and new NieR Replicant & Re[in]carnation costumes.

NieR:Automata was initially released in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and PC, with an Xbox One release in 2018. The game follows characters named 2B and 9S, who are agents of Yorha, an organization tasked with various combative and information-gathering missions. This entry became highly popularized for its storytelling and characters in a fusion of action, exploration, and shmup elements.
