Nier: Automata and PlatinumGames are releasing the first wave of DLC, featuring both costumes and a set of challenging arena fights.

The pack arrives on both PlayStation 4 and PC platforms worldwide on May 2nd, with the pack elegantly titled “3C3C1D119440927,” featuring fights against Square Enix CEO, Yosuke Matsuda and PlatinumGames CEO, Kenichi Sato. Both fourth-wall and immersion-breaking, Nier: Automata revels in the ludicrousness of the fights, while still offering quite a bit of challenge to boot.

Also, coming with the DLC are quests that unlock more music, hair customization, special bullet customization, and costumes from the previous Nier game from 2010, released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. No word on Western pricing is yet available, but the Japanese release is pegged at ¥1,500, or roughly $15 USD.

You can step back into the machine-ravaged world of Nier: Automata on May 2nd.
