NieR: Automata Cosplay So Good You’ll Forget You’re Looking at an Actual Person

NieR: Automata Cosplay So Good You’ll Forget You’re Looking at an Actual Person

This A2 cosplay from syousumaro is so good that even we had a hard time believing it wasn't a screenshot from NieR: Automata.

There’s a huge stock of stellar NieR: Automata cosplay and it continues to grow to this day, despite the fact that the game came out over two years ago. While 2B has often been the star of these super impressive displays, A2 has seen the spotlight herself more than a few times. Her most recent showcase comes from syousumaro.

It’s important (and difficult) to remember that this isn’t some computer-generated depiction of the character–it’s an actual photograph of an actual person. The tremendous amount of time and effort that went into this cosplay is very real. The photo was taken by kotyou 549 at Non-Day Studio. A second set of photos have come out more recently. Those were taken by Arthur Gray at Studio Nero.

NieR: Automata recently celebrated selling over 4 million copies with new art and a video. While it’s not the best selling game of all time, those numbers greatly exceeded PlatinumGames’ expectations. Its praises were widely sung by critics two years ago, and we at DualShockers certainly have high opinions of it. This likely isn’t the last piece NieR: Automata cosplay we’ll see, and for that we’re grateful.

If you haven’t yet played Yoko Taro’s masterpiece you can do so on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The Game of the YoRHa Edition is available on Amazon.
