Supplemental Material

There are many supplemental materials that make up the entirety of the DOD/NieR universe, so I tried to unify everything into a comprehensive list. Where possible, I will also put in links to where you can read these items in English.

Regarding English translations, some materials have seen both fan and official translations. Should an item have multiple translated versions, this will be listed beneath each chapter title with the following tags:

[FT] – Fan Translation
[OR] – Official Release

Lastly, like many things on my site, this is a work in progress and I look forward to completing this list at some point in the future. If you have something to add here, please feel free to contact me! 😀


Let me first begin with a short list of things that might be good for you to take a look at to prepare for the release of NieR:Automata. It has been said that you don’t need any prior knowledge of any of the previous games, but… for those who do know about these items may get more out of the story.
