NieR: Automata Black Box Edition Unboxing

NieR: Automata is available now for PlayStation 4 in North America (Europeans get it on the 10th).

While our review is in progress, I wanted to hold you guys over until we can publish it by doing an unboxing video for our NieR: Automata Black Box Edition. You can find that video above.

NieR: Automata is also coming to PC on March 17th.

    Got mine today. Got to say, that art book has some super thick paper.

    And yes, the first thing I did was look under that skirt. Nice detail in the statue. Expensive? Yes, but it’s Nier, dammit. It deserves my support! Been playing since the first Drakengard~

    I wish I had the shekels to afford it but unfortunately like usual the Square Store has atrocious Canadian shipping on top of being a bit too overpriced in my opinion.

    Absolutely gorgeous designs in general though. Shame about the not-super-great quality on 2B – she deserves a proper scale figure.

  • RichardGristle

    God damn that’s a beautiful collector’s edition. That steelbook is great. I’m not sure I find it worth ~$200 though, especially with the 2B Flare figure on the way.

  • catazxy

    I always have a boner for thick artbooks.

  • Migi

    Would have bought it if the figure was bigger.

  • Obbliglol



  • I want to cum on the figure.

  • CommanderZx2

    Nice figure, would buy it if it was sold separately as it’s not included with PC version.

  • FrankieL

    And heavier. SE’s collector’s edition figures are super cheap which makes most of them WAAAAAAY overpriced. I learned my lesson with FFXIV: Heavensward Collector’s Edition.

  • FrankieL

    I’m glad I passed on this. In comparison to the Horizon Zero Dawn CE and even the Sword Art Online Hollow Realization CE, this is absolutely not worth $200.

    Worry not, it shall be hotglued.

  • Fenrir007

    Great and all but I don’t think the price is worth it. Besides, I doubt we won’t see other statues or figurines of her in the long run. I predict a figma.

  • VGJunky

    Is it worth it? For being super limited and giving me a reason to throw my money at this game it sure was

  • Feniks


  • Migi

    The figure does look more like a prize figure then a full blown 1/8 figure

  • Ryan Barrett

    “Is it worth $200” ANSWER: NO.

  • stullz

    I really hate that Square only sells their collector’s editions on their store… Makes them no-buys for me. And I really want that statue… (If it had been on amazon or best buy I could have gotten a 20% discount via Prime/Gamer’s Club)

    If you want premium product, you need to pay premium dollar.

  • Error404

    Holy hell I was sweating when he was cutting the figurine box open with a scissor. Damnit you do not open collector’s edition with a scissor, do you not have a box cutting knife around? >.>

  • FrankieL

    Even though, other than the PlayArts Kai stuff, most of what Square puts out as premium products aren’t even close to being premium quality.

  • FrankieL

    or even an xacto knife. Seems like every household should have at least one box cutter and one xacto knife.
