NieR: Automata A2 and 9S Figures Announced by Square Enix; 9S Prototype Revealed

Square Enix is working on figures portraying NieR: Automata's androids A2 and 9S.

April 23, 2017

Square Enix already released a lovely NieR: Automata figure portraying protagonist  YoRHa 9S, but there is more coming, as revealed during the NieR Music Concert held yesterday in Osaka.

The publisher had on display the prototype of a 9S figure and a concept for a figure dedicated to A2. You can see them in the gallery below, courtesy of Twitter users 花江 夏樹 and エハラジュンイチ.

The tags in the pictures reveal a winter release window for 9S, while A2’s is marked as “to be determined.” Prices are also pending, while both figures will be manufactured by Square Enix.

As a bonus, Producer Yosuke Saito shared the pictures below.

In Japan, there is a tradition to deliver floral compositions to celebrate an event or inauguration, and two of those received for the concert were definitely rather creative. One reproduced the boss Beauvoir, while the other includes a black box within a lovely composition of black and white roses.

Lately, the first DLC package has been announced, coming with costumes from the original NieR, and a battle arena, including the ability to change hair color for 2B and A2.

Speaking of NieR, yesterday marked the seventh anniversary of the release of the first game.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
