2B from NieR Automata arrives in Star Ocean: Anamnesis

To celebrate the fact that their mobile title Star Ocean: Anamnesis has been released in additional countries, android 2B from NieR Automata has been added to the game as part of a special event. Those who want to add her to their party can do so with greatly increased rates from a limited-time Campaign Character Draw that will be available until October 30. She is an ace Attacker unit excelling in short-range weapons combat.

As part of her appearance, character designer and artist Akiman (who has previously worked on the Street Fighter series) has illustrated 2B in a brand-new style in order to maintain the unique visuals of the Star Ocean universe.


Additionally, all new players who decide to create an account from now until November 6 will be able to benefit from the “Welcome Aboard Campaign” just by logging in. This campaign includes a number of bonuses, including:

  • 5000 Gems – Valuable in-game currency that can be used to summon powerful new characters, weapons and more.

  • One 5-star Ace Character Ticket and Three 5-star Weapon Ticket – Extremely rare items to unlock powerful characters and gear.

  • One 4-star Welch and One 5-star Faize Characters – The bubbly, iconic recurring STAR OCEAN-series character Welch Vineyard, as well as the cool and collected Faize, originally from STAR OCEAN: The Last Hope alongside their powerful Jester’s Wand and Eldar Lord Rapier equipment.

  • A number of additional Crystals, Prisms, Stamina Tickets, Fol and other valuable bonus items to help players unlock their maximum potential power.

It should be noted that 9S and A2 were featured in the Japanese version of the game, so we should hopefully see an appearance by them as well down the road.

Star Ocean: Anamnesis is now available for iOS and Android. Check out the announcement trailer for 2B arriving in the game below:
