Square Enix announced a new version of NieR: Automata with NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition for PS4 and PC, and it releases in Japan this February with extra DLC and various bonuses.
The Game of the YoRHa Edition comes with the base NieR: Automata game, the 3C3C1D119440927 DLC, and for bonuses it comes with a Machine Lifeform Mask, Grimoire Weiss Pod Model, and Pod Skins (Cardboard, Retro Red, Retro Gray, and a digital-exclusive Play System) along with a PS4 Dynamic Theme and a set of avatars.
Here’s a special message from Yoko Taro:
Square Enix has asked me for a comment to mark the announcement of the NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition.
Now that you mention it, NieR: Automata was first released on the 23rd of February 2017 in Japan, 7th of March 2017 in America, and on the 10th of March 2017 in Europe.
I have noticed something bizarre and fascinating about these numbers:
If you write these dates out in long-form as 2017223, 20170307, and 20170310, then add all three numbers together, you get 60510840.
If you take that total, split the digits in two down the middle, making 6051 and 0840, and then subtract the second number from the first… unbelievably you get 5211!!
That’s right, a number completely devoid of all meaning!
Just like life really, isn’t it? Over and out.
NieR: Automata: Game of the YoRHa Edition releases in Japan for PlayStation 4 on February 21, 2019 and for PC on February 27, 2019.
