This is my translation the October 26 blog update on the official NieR:Automata site.
The photos and original content is from there.
Here’s a little head’s up regarding the limited DLC bonuses available from various store locations.
First Edition Bonus
Pod Model: Weiss
All members of the YoRHa Squadron come with the support “Pod” units as their standard equipment. As a special bonus for the first edition of the game, the outer design of the Pods, with their long-range attacks and ability to help you move about the field with their glide function, can take on the appearance of Weiss from the previous game.
※ This is an added bonus when you pre-order the game at any of the stores listed below.
Square Enix e-STORE Bonus
Accessory: Bio-machine Head
An accessory for 2B that gives her the head of the enemy Bio-machines will be available from the e-STORE as a limited bonus.
Pod Skin: Delivery Box
This is the limited bonus DLC available from Amazon.co.jp that gives Pod the appearance of an Amazon cardboard delivery box.
Pod Skin: Retro Black
This is the limited bonus DLC skin for Pod available at Geo.
※ During the 1st Live Broadcast on October 26th, Yoko Taro stated that there was something about these extra Pod skins that would be very bad if he talked about them in more detail. I have absolutely no idea what this could mean, but it seems like there is something hidden about these guys.
Pod Skin: Retro Red
This is the limited bonus available at Game Tsutaya and Tsutaya Online Shopping.
Pod Skin: Blue Stripes
And lastly, this is the limited bonus available at Lawson convenience stores.
- Note #1: Each DLC is limited and may change without prior notice.
- Note #2: There is no plan to offer these DLCs outside of this pre-order promotion.
- The Black Box Edition from the SQEX e-STORE comes with the Weiss and Bio-machine Head DLCs.
