Though Nier: Automata is over three years old at this point, its cast of characters live on in a myriad of crossovers with other games. The latest game to feature 2B, 9S, and A2 (or at least their cosmetics) is Phantasy Star Online 2–though it’ll cost you.
While you can get a full suite of cosmetics including outfits, hair, weapons, and accessories for Nier’s androids, each character requires the purchase of a separate $35 pack–though a female version of 9S’s cosmetics are included with the A2 pack. You can get Emil’s head as part of the 9S pack, while the A2 pack also includes a wearable machine lifeform head.
Nier: Automata’s popular characters have made appearances in a number of games outside their own. Most notably, 2B is available in the roster for fighting game Soul Calibur 6, mobile game Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and the now defunct Monster Hunter Frontier Z. A list compiled on Reddit counts nine games where 2B has made an appearance, with the PSO2 pack making it an even ten.
With Nier: Automata and PSO2 both being published by Square Enix, the collaboration makes sense–though it’s yet to be seen how many fans will pony up over $100 for the full set. PSO2 regularly hosts crossovers with other games, including a recent pack that added Persona items and characters.
