Glory to mankind, fellow humanoids!

We’ve just announced new content for Nier: Automata is on the way. The DLC, titled “3C3C1D119440927,” will be coming soon to PS4. In the DLC, players will be able to unlock new costumes for their favorite YoRHa androids: 2B, 9S, and A2. Fans might recognize the costumes, as they are inspired by characters from the previous Nier installment, Nier: Replicant.

  • 2B — “Revealing Outfit”
  • 9S — “Young Man’s Outfit”
  • A2 — “Destroyer Outfit”

Pretty cool huh? A2’s outfit is my favorite simply because of its name. Just imagine a friend asking you what you’re wearing and you casually mentioning “Oh what, these? These are just my new Destroyer threads… no biggie.”

The caveat is that unlocking these costumes is no easy task. Players will have to complete a series of challenges presented in the form of colosseum battles. The costumes are the final reward for completing each challenge set in the three different colosseums located across the world.

However, there are even more rewards to be earned! When completing new challenges and quests, players will be rewarded with:

  • New equipment and cosmetic accessories such as hairspray that allows you to change the color of 2B and A2’s hair.
  • Masks with unique “on equip” effects.
  • Records that add special music tracks to the players’ jukebox.
  • Special bullets that change the appearance of enemy bullets.

We’d like to send out a big thank you to everyone who has picked up Nier: Automata, and with this DLC we hope you continue to enjoy the game in new and weird ways.

    Unfortunate I sold my copy of the game due to 100% percenting it and i erased my save data at the end when i was done love the kaine outfit if i still had the game i would replay some chapters just to get it

    • So whoever bought your used copy will get to enjoy the new DLC, awesome!

      Who deletes their save files? They take up usually only a few mb, my guess is you just deleted the install file.

      You obviously hadn’t completed the game if you don’t know..

    • whereymyconary

      I have not. But that means they are pulling that again from nier… fiddles.

  • why not just call the costumes what they actually are, Kainé and Brother Nier’s outfits from the previous game.

    “revealing outfit”

    what

    • Because more people understand ‘revealing’ than played the original Nier. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Nier myself, but it didn’t hit a big audience back then ;)

    • BrabeusRapier

      I thought the same, it bothers me a little.

  • GodIsFaithful

    I need this in my life. NOW!!

  • Yes! I was hoping 2B would get a Kaine outfit! Love this series.

  • I understand revealing outfit makes more sense to people who never played the first game, but if they want this to be a franchise, they can’t ignore the events and characters in the first game. Automata heavily references events in the first game so this is a confusing naming decision.

    • A lot of the time Tales games have names that hint at the person the outfit’s based off of rather than their direct names, which might have been the intent here. I don’t necessarily know that they did the best job of it, but that was probably what they were aiming for.

      Either way, just be happy we got the outfits. :)

    Dreams do come true! ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º)

  • Would love to know if the coliseum is repeatable and not just a one time thing. Hoping for some replability!

  • hope SE can release the DLC in Hong Kong service at the same time with Japanese service.

  • iwantmeatloaf

    Can’t wait for this. This is the only reason I chose to keep my save data.

  • Nice…this is very nice.
