Here’s a closer look at NieR: Automata’s 2B in Soulcalibur VI

Love that alt look

Soulcalibur VI is welcoming 2B from NieR: Automata into the fold at some point and people are going crazy over it. Not only is it a fresh relevant pick for a guest character, but Automata also rocks and popped up on many a Game of the Year list in 2017. 

The trailer dropped over the weekend, but you can check out some extra screens straight from Bandai Namco in the gallery below if that wasn’t enough. There’s more of a focus on her alternate costume, her Pod (that tiny floating robot) in action and her swath of weapons, including the R050: Spear. You also get a glimpse at her killer Soulcalibur VI style official artwork.

I sincerely hope that 2B heralds in some strange meta-like stuff with her intros and that guest characters add a ton of extra material to the already incredible character editor. This isn’t her first guest appearance: 2B has also shown up in Gravity Rush 2, Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, SINoALICE, Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin and Phantasy Star Online 2.
