Nier DLC Coming Later This Month

By Spencer . May 7, 2010 . 6:36am


Famitsu has news about the “downloadable content” option in the main menu of Nier. Later this month, Square Enix will release paid DLC for Nier.


Players will be able to hack and slash in a special stage with continuous battles. The Nier downloadable content pack(s?) also add items, which can be used for the main story. We’ll have more details about this next week since Famitsu is saving the full reveal for next week’s issue.

  • If they’d release the Nier Replicant character as DLC I’d happily pay for it.

    • i agree… i’d definitely get the nier gestalt… and chnge it to replicant…

      Why is everyone so hung up on it still, as another commenter pointed out before, is it that important you want the main character to look like Chloë Sevigny or you won’t play it? Old man Nier might not win any contest on looks, but he’s one heck of a cool character, the VA does an amazing job too. No, the US ver. will not find another person to re-dub a young nier in Eng. I like Tanaka Atsuko and Ikehata “Peter” Shinnosuke (voice of Caim/Dragon in Drakengard) as Kaine and Weiss respectively in the Jpn ver., but the Eng VA sound much much better in my opinion.

      • I gotta agree with you on this Aoshi. Old man Nier isn’t aesthetically appealing, but the father-daughter dynamic works well. The English voice acting for Grimoire Weiss is fantastic too.

    How bout Nier DLC for the US…that lets us play as the Replicant mc.

      I bet they wont. This is probably for JPN version only. Though I see options for Nier Replicant hair color change. Good. The white hair was too cliche

  • vrakanox

    I’ll take one of everything please.

  • CrimsonFlamesX

    I’m enjoying Nier so far. Bring on the DLC!

    Personally, I would prefer the dlc fix all the plot holes this game has, and maybe add some additional endings.

    Again the no-punk-kid-in-our-version bitching/whining, sigh… The game is awesome as is, one of the best games in years. I’ve only played the regular Nier for about 18 hrs now and enjoying every minute of it, P-A has not shipped my Replicant copy yet, I got it because of the Jpn track like I get two ver. for most RPGs, not because of the alternate hero. I would be glad to get DLCs for BOTH version for such an amazing game. Young Nier skin for the US ver? Just aint gonna happen I can bet you. The older more mature Nier (rated M) is the original, and the young kid later turned young adult Nier (Cero D) was made to cater the Jpn ver, not the other way around people. I have the OST and there was old pop but no young Nier on the liner notes. I wonder why.I hope the DLC would be substantial maybe even more dialogue or cutscenes like Magna Carta 2, I can’t get enough of Nier, Weiss, and Kaine. This game definitely washed the bad taste from my mouth left by FFXIII.
