You Can Fight Square Enix’s CEO In Nier: Automata’s New DLC

Nier: Automata has new DLC on the way, and it’s got a selling point you don’t see often: It allows you to beat up the CEOs of the companies responsible for the game.

The DLC–which carries the totally easy-to-remember name 3C3C1D119440927–has three new coliseums to compete in. As featured in the video below, one of these has you trying to convince a secretary to let you in to see someone, and it even forces you to agree that you’re okay with the fourth wall being broken. Once you do, you’ll fight against Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda. Later on, developer Platinum Games’ president and CEO, Kenichi Sato, also joins the fight.

You can check out a second, less CEO-centric gameplay video from the DLC below.

Alongside these encounters, 3C3C1D119440927 features new sub-quests that unlock various bonuses. These include new outfits for 2B, 9S, and A2 that you can see in the gallery below; they’re based on ones from the Japan-only game Nier: Replicant.

Here’s everything you earn for completing the quests:

  • Costumes from the previous Japanese release, Nier: Replicant, for androids 2B, 9S, and A2
  • Records that add special music tracks to the players’ jukebox
  • New equipment and cosmetic accessories such as hairspray that allows you to change the color of 2B and A2’s hair
  • Masks with unique “on equip” effects
  • Special bullets that change the appearance of enemy bullets

A price and exact release date for 3C3C1D119440927 wasn’t shared, with Square Enix simply saying it will arrive “soon” for both the PS4 and PC versions.

The company announced recently that shipments and digital sales of Automata have already exceed one million units. For more, check out GameSpot’s review.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
