Nier: Automata’s first DLC pack has been announced through two new trailers, and it’s just what you’d expect from the eccentric game producer Yoko Taro.
Named “3C3C1D119440927,” the DLC offers three new colosseums with new missions for players to challenge. Doing so will net them new costumes for 2B, 9S and A2 based on the previous Nier game, as well as masks with special bonuses and customization options for the characters’ hair and enemy bullet appearances.
In addition, players will have the option to take on the CEOs of Square Enix and Platinum Games. Both offer a unique challenge and experience that, as the game warns, could “destroy your sense of emersion.”
Square Enix hasn’t yet given a firm release date for North America, but the DLC is expected to release May 2 in Japan.
It’s always fun to see a game poke fun at itself and the industry. Nier: Automata’s DLC not only does that, but it also offers one of the most unique boss fights in recent memory as a result. For that alone, this is new content worth keeping an eye out for.
