Nier ‘World of Recycled Vessel’ DLC hits on May 12

Love it or hate it, even more Nier is coming in the near future. Tomorrow, May 11th. Square Enix plans to release the game’s first bit of DLC for the Xbox 360 and PS3 entitled “World of Recycled Vessel.” The content adds 15 special stages, more Shades, and weapons.

Perhaps the most striking addition is the fact that the DLC comes with “bold new costumes,” including the little boy Nier costume only available in Japan. But be prepared to don this garb in a special scenario: according to the press release, the DLC begins after the discovery of Nier’s wife’s diary on his bookshelf. As in an untold amount of fairy tales, Nier is then whisked away to a “dreamscape” rife with combat. No fishing, though.
