Square Enix has announced a new figurine based on the foul-mouthed Kainé from the original NieR.
Produced by Bring Arts, the new figurine is set to launch sometime in July of of this year. Here are some more shots:
Thie new Kainé figure comes pre-painted and stands at 147mm, with its other dimensions measuring W39mm and D26mm. Fans will be able to swap her Emil helmet off or on, as well as the dual swords, interchangeable hands, and its stand base.
It’s also worth pointing out the Emil helmet fits on the 2B figurine, also produced by Bring Arts.
If you’re looking to get your hands on the figure, make sure to pre-order tomorrow when they go live – before they’re all gone! Japanese retailer amiami will have pre-orders available.
NieR was originally released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in April of 2010. It spawned a highly successful sequel, NieR: Automata, which we love dearly – you can find our review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).
