Watch NieR: Automata’s DLC Arena in Action Starring Square Enix and PlatinumGames’ CEOs

NieR: Automata's new DLC arena will come with two exceptional guest stars.

After announcing the DLC arena for NieR: Automata, Square Enix showcased the content in action.

The gameplay was introduced directly by Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda, who was included as a guest star in the DLC together with PlatinumGames CEO Kenichi Sato.

As a little piece of trivia, Matsuda-san’s in-game model was provided by the Final Fantasy XV team. It’s the same used for the game’s hilarious “Mystery Disk” used to celebrate Final Fantasy XV‘s launch.

Beating Matsuda-san and Sato-san’s in-game counterparts will grant player great rewards. You can check gameplay footage out in the video below.

Funnily, Matsuda-san said during the livestream that he has been busy playing Horizon Zero Dawn, and hinted that he’d like PlatinumGames to work on another title for Square Enix in the future.
