NieR: Automata and Final Fantasy XV Get Crossover Collaboration


Square Enix has announced a collaboration between NieR: Automata and Final Fantasy XV.

NieR: Automata will get a special one-handed “Engine Blade” weapon for protagonist YoRHa No.2 Type B, which is the emblem of Final Fantasy XV protagonist Noctis. That pixelated shaft YoRHA is wielding in the above image is the very weapon, so get your mind out of the gutter.

The Engine Blade has an exclusive evasion effect, and the weapon model itself is directly imported from Final Fantasy XV, with the damage amount and effects even reflecting its behavior in the other RPG. Finally, there’s a potential storyline behind this weapon appearing in NieR: Automata.

It’s also worth mentioning Final Fantasy XV will get a NieR: Automata collaboration, however details weren’t confirmed at this time.

NieR: Automata will launch for PlayStation 4 on February 23rd, 2017 in Japan – followed by a PS4 and PC release sometime next year, worldwide.

    Why is it pixelated?

    “…there’s a potential storyline behind this weapon appearing in NieR: Automata.”

    There is only needless pain.

    Fucking hell, do they have to insert this WITH a potential storyline? Let me guess, alternate timelines means FF15 is part of the Drakengard canon?

    *looks at giant pixelated sword (maybe bat?) thing*
    Sure it isn’t a crossover with Saints Row?

    Hope this doesn’t end up moulding the game into some fujoshi shit show.

    A Sad warning: most of the “major battles” in FFXV are pure QTE, i wish this was a joke, the leviathan “battle” for example is a QTE.

    I don’t immediately make any sort of mental connection between XV & the sword in the image – I’ll just call it the lewd sword

    Dicksword jokes aside, I don’t mind this transfer of weapons between games. While you are at it, Square, put the Soul Reaver in there.

    November 22, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    -Drakengard canon

    I’m okay with that. More mindfucks please.

    Now all you have to do is start calling people cucks (Which no one in the comments seem to know the meaning of) and you’re golden.

    What the fuck did you just fucking say about me you little cuck? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the anti-SJW army and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Kotaku.com

    Am I doing it right???

    It’s mostly one guy who don’t know what the word means but yet he uses it constantly.

    Technically, everything’s canon if you use the “parallel worlds” plot point.

    Although, mentioning the possibilities and actually implementing them are two different things. The latter is a mistake.

    By extension anything you can think of.

    This is what you get when alternate timelines is used as a plot point, bruv.

    That’s why there’s so many penises in that game.

    I still can’t believe we’re getting a Nier 2.

    With a budget. I mean, holy shit.

    add YoRHa No.2 Type B as a boss in FFXV that you can recruit once she is defeated, that’ll be a crossover worth having. Don’t even need to change her appearance either because she is already dressed to look the part.

    I bet FFXV will get clothes or something like that.

    Judging from that game’s ending we may not be seeing a sequel even if it does do well.
