On the One Million Shipments live stream for Nier: Automata, it was revealed that new DLC will be coming to the game, that will bring new hair colour, costumes and CEO battles.
The new DLC titled “3C3C1D119440927” is slated for a May release in Japan, with no firm date slated for Western Territories. The Colosseum DLC will add a combat arena to the game that will let players take on challenges to win new costumes and hair sprays, and other equipment. According to Gematsu who originally reported the story, the DLC will be released in Japan on May 2, 2017 at a price of 1500 Yen.
If that were not enough, the Colosseum DLC will also add a series of new bosses to the game, including Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda and Platinum Games president and CEO Kenichi Sato. Keeping with the over-the-top nature of Nier: Automata, this new DLC pack should be a treat for fans wanting to experience more from that universe and engage in some over the top action with some well-known studio heads.
In the review of Nier: Automata on CGMagazine, Elias Blondeausummarised the game experience by saying “NieR: Automata is the rare gaming experience in which narrative, aesthetics, and gameplay all complement each other to form a perfect storm of master class game design. A truly exemplary example of what video games are capable of as an art form, and a new personal favourite.” Elias ultimately awarded the game a 10/10, making it an early “must own” title for 2017.
