Goddess of Victory: NIKKE x NieR Automata crossover launches on September 1

According to developer Shift Up, it's time for YoRHa to meet the Nikkes. Goddess of Victory: NIKKE will kick off its planned crossover event with NieR: Automata at the beginning of September 2023. The event itself has a start date of September 1, 2023. 

Shift Up also uploaded a teaser trailer for the event:

The NIKKE x NieR Automata crossover event trailer shows NieR Automata characters 2B and A2 interacting with Nikke cyborgs from the in-game "Counters" squad. Pascal, the Machine Lifeform that heads a peaceful village in NieR Automata, is also visible in the trailer, and will be part of the event's story.

Though Shift Up hasn't announced the details for the event yet, promotional art suggests that 2B and A2 will appear as playable characters, obtainable through the game's gacha system. Pascal's role in the event is unconfirmed.

While players of NIKKE await the start of the crossover, though, Shift Up also has another event planned to fill the gap. Starting from August 24, 2023, the game will receive a version update. The update will bring all players a new cosmetic skin for the character Modernia. 

The costume, called "Modernia - First Affection" shows the fearsome former Heretic Nikke dressed in sleepwear. The costume's addition to the selection was determined by popular vote, when Shift Up ran the "Doki Doki Nikke" popularity poll. Modernia garnered the most votes, which triggered a second poll in which fans selected the design of the costume. Special player profile frames will represent the poll runners up - Scarlet, Alice, Rapunzel, and Anis.

Alongside the costume, a special event focused on Modernia, also called "First Affection", will run from August 24 through August 31, 2023.

Goddess of Victory: NIKKE is available on mobile devices and PC. The NieR Automata crossover event begins on September 1, 2023.
