Square Enix Shares Guitar Cover of “Weight of the World” from NieR:Automata

Square Enix Music’s official YouTube channel has shared an official guitar cover of an iconic track from NieR:Automata titled “Weight of the World.” This emotional track is often attributed to climatic moments of closure and finality in the game and is arguably one of the most commonly praised songs by fans.

Composed by Keiichi Okabe, Takanori Goto arranged and performed this guitar cover. In addition, arrangements of “The Dark Colossus Destroys All,” “Song of the Ancients,” and “Pascal” were previously shared by Square Enix.

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.
