NieR: Automata comes to Octopath Traveler mobile game
The mobile game Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent, which is slated to head to America and Europe in 2022, has revealed a huge crossover. The three main characters of NieR: Automata — 2B, 9S, and A2 — will be coming to the game, and all three will be recruitable.
The event, called “Hacking Attempt From Another World,” will feature an original story as well as pixel art versions of 2B, 9S, and A2. The limited-time event will also grant players a one-time free 10-roll which will guarantee that players will get 9S.
Additionally, there will be a multi-step paid gacha event that will let players randomly recruit one of the three characters. At the fifth 10 summon pull, one of the three characters will be guaranteed.
The trailers also revealed that the characters will have their own unique special moves, such as 2B’s “Self Destruct Sequence” and A2’s “Berserk Mode.” Each of the three characters will also receive an Octopath Traveler class to fit into the world they are joining.
