Today, the SQUARE ENIX hit mobile game STAR OCEAN: ANAMNESIS begins its highly anticipated NieR:Automata collaboration. Fan-favorite character 2B, who was previously available in-game for a limited time, is back along with her cohorts 9S and A2. In addition to each character receiving a custom STAR OCEAN: ANAMNESIS 3D model, each has also received a new 2D illustration, which is viewable in-game. Check out each of the characters in action here:
Through November 27, 2018, players can add the iconic androids 2B, 9S, and A2 to their roster through a limited-time character banner. 2B, a 5-star Ace Attacker, excels in short-range combat, while 9S, a 5-star Ace Sharpshooter, can use his heightened speed and agility to evade enemy attacks. A2, a 5-star Ace Defender, is also capable of dishing out great damage during her RUSH mode, and can recover her and her party’s AP when evading an enemy. A2’s Great Swords and 9S’ One-Handed Sword (Type-3 Sword) are available for the first time in-game with their addition.
Players can also challenge the Tomb of Remembrance during this period to obtain special NieR series gear, including the Virtuous Contract one-handed sword and Emil Mask accessory. By logging in daily all players can earn generous rewards, including a 5-star Weapon Ticket, a 5-star Character Ticket, a 5-star Ace Character Ticket, and more, on top of normal login bonuses. The chance of a character enhancement being a ‘Great Success’ is also greatly increased during this collaboration period.
Furthermore, viewers can learn more about the new NieR collaboration content in STAR OCEAN: ANAMNESIS via the SE Mobile Community Stream, beginning at 1:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday, November 14, 2018.
