Nier: Automata Summary: Nier: Automata shares the post-apocalyptic setting of the original Nier, taking place after the game's fourth ending. Certain characters from Nier, such as Emil, are confirmed to appear, while other characters from both Nier and Drakengard 3 are mentioned. While carrying over the Drakengard series' tradition of a dark atmosphere and branching storylines, no direct narrative connection is shared between Nier: Automata and the rest of the series. Set an unknown time after the events of Nier, the story revolves around a war between the remnants of humanity and the machine army of invaders from another world. The initial invasion forced humanity to flee to the Moon.
The main protagonists are combat androids dubbed "YoRHa", sent by humanity to fight the invaders in a proxy war. While denied emotions and lacking true names, they have particular attitudes that distinguish them from their fellows. The main protagonist is YoRHa No. 2 Model B, or "2B" for short, a female-model YoRHa android whose main traits are being calm and composed. Other main characters are "9S" (YoRHa No. 9 Model S), a reconnaissance android who displays more emotion than other YoRHa units; and "A2" (YoRHa Model A No. 2), an obsolete prototype android of 2B's line with a taciturn personality who often chooses to act alone. Game Information
Not sure why they censored it. I thought they would use more of Final Fantasy iconic weapons like the Gun Blade or Cloud's sword.
Not surprisingly, NieR: Automata will be hooking up with Final Fantasy XV for a modest collaboration, which gives YoRHa No. 2 Type B an FFXV-inspired Engine Blade weapon. The one-handed weapon will include an exclusive evasion effect, as well as its own backstory.
The Black Box edition, which retails for US$189.99, includes: a collector's box, the game, a YoRHa "2B" figurine, a 64-page hardback artbook, a steelbook case featuring artwork from Bravely Default/Final Fantasy XIV artist Akihiko Yoshida, and a soundtrack of 13 live-recorded songs from both NieR and NieR: Automata. The Black Box edition is only available on the Square Enix Online Store.
The Black Box edition will also include the Day One edition digital content: a Machine Mask Accessory, a Grimoire Weiss Pod, a Play System Pod Skin, a Retro Grey Pod Skin, a Retro Red Pod Skin, and a Cardboard Pod Skin. The Day One edition also includes reversible box art featuring character illustrations by Yoshida.
The NieR: Automata 3C3C1D119440927 DLC features three new colosseums to challenge, plus additional sub-quests. Upon completion of these quests, players can earn various rewards including new costumes from NieR: Replicant, new equipment and cosmetic accessories such as masks, hairspray that change the color of your character, records that add special music tracks to the players’ jukebox and much more!

Old Man Dream: ...Umineko crossover. May have liked the idea with better handling of the story development. But it's basically made Satoko a rather unlikable character now.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
