NieR: Automata Details Its “Plug-in Chip” System For Customizing Character Abilities

Recommended Videos

Square Enix shared new details on their upcoming action RPG, NieR: Automata, with info on the “Plug-in Chip” that allows you to further customize character abilities. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]

 

Ability Customization with the Chip

  • By using a “Plug-in Chip,” you can freely customize abilities to change your play style the way you like it, such as emphasizing more on attack power or defense, and so on.

 

  • These Chips can be purchased, but they’re also acquired from enemy drops.

 

  • Each Chip is set with a capacity, but you’re able to equip several Plug-in Chips as long as there’s enough space within a character’s storage.

 

  • There are Chips that display HP meters, damage numbers, and other types of HUD info Chips. So for example, you could customize your characters by having less information available via Chips and focus more on customizations that allow you to attack better.

 

Also revealed was a new character:

 

Anemone (CV: Chiaki Kanou): A leader of the Resistance, who landed on Earth before the YoRHa Units. She has a steadfast personality and cares for her friends.

 

NieR: Automata releases in Japan on February 23, North America on March 7, and Europe on March 10, 2017 for PlayStation 4. The PC version will be available sometime in 2017.
