Fight Square Enix's CEO In Nier: Automata's DLC

And not only does Nier: Automata's upcoming DLC let you battle Square Enix exec Yosuke Matsuda, but also Platinum Games honcho Kenichi Sato.

The downloadable content, dubbed "3C3C1D119440927", comes with three different costumes as well as arena battles with rewards to the winners.

According to Square Enix, those rewards include:

  • Costumes from the previous Japanese release, NieR: Replicant, for androids 2B, 9S and A2
  • Records that add special music tracks to the players' jukebox
  • New equipment and cosmetic accessories such as hairspray that allows you to change the colour of 2B and A2's hair
  • Masks with unique "on equip" effects
  • Special bullets that change the appearance of enemy bullets

Sadly, you cannot dress up Square Enix boss Yosuke Matsuda in these outfits. You can, however, fight Matsuda, who was last seen as a boss in the FF15 "Mystery Disc" demo. (Oh, and around the Square Enix offices.)

This time around, he and Sato spray the screen with their heads.

3C3C1D119440927 will be out May 2 in Japan on the PS4 and Steam for 1500 yen ($18), while Square Enix says it's "coming soon" to North America. No word yet on pricing or an Australian release date.


    so the closest thing to an official nude mod for 2B?

    ah well who am I to complain, the game was awesome as is

    I have a question for who's ever played the full game.

    I tried a demo at GameTraders and it was very pretty, but kinda boring. I didn't have to press any of the attack buttons, I just had to move my character to an area of combat and she'd fight and dodge on her own, taking absolutely no damage at all. It was cool, but I wondered if it was like this through the entire game.

    I was assuming it was some kind of autopilot function that gets damaged/corrupted and disabled later after the first level, and you'd need to get your abilities back like most Metroid games.

      I'd say that the game was set on the easiest setting for that demo. Without trying to spoil anything, the easy mode gives you access to certain modifiers like auto shoot, auto dodge and auto attack. It's set up for people who don't want to do the combat but just want the story.

      The combat is pretty great though. There is a demo available on PSN free, which I think you can run through on all the difficulties (the hardest is literally everything one shots you) so I'd definitely suggest giving that a try.

      Seriously though, this game is f-ing amazing. Well worth giving it a try if you're even a little bit interested :)

    I kinda wish they'd do story DLC or sidequest additions (not even sure what that could be, the game is definitely a complete whole) but I'm still all in for this. This game is fricken incredible, I'm the same with Breath of the Wild at this stage, I just want to soak up every little piece of content they put out!

    No Kaine costume for A2? Bzzzt.
