This is what the display looks like for ordering the cookies on the Loppi system at a Lawson convenience store:

So, it looks like the delivery box that the cookies will be packaged in is the same design as the smartphone case!


In other news, Yoko Taro was asked to make a comment regarding the new Fantasy RPG in development from Atlus*.

* I was a little quick to write about this, so I apologize for getting your hopes up that he would be directly involved. It does not appear that is the case at the moment.

Dengeki PlayStation Live Broadcast 12/15

Dengeki PlayStation will host their first NieR:Automata Live Broadcast this Thursday, December 15 at 8:00PM (Japan Standard Time).

More gameplay footage and new info is scheduled to be released. Ishikawa Yui (2B), Hanae Natsuki (9S), Saito Yosuke (SQEX), Nishimura Eijiro (PG), and Tadatsugu (MC) will be on the show.

Fans have suggested that potential areas of discussion may revolve around the upcoming demo and/or Jump Festa this Saturday, December 17th. Remember, the new NieR YoRHa/2B designed hoodie will be available first at the event before it’s brought over to the SQEX e-STORE.

Also, if you remember way back when Saito Yosuke started a poll on Twitter to ask fans whether they’d be interested in a NieR themed PS4… This would be good timing to let an announcement like drop ahead of the NieR:Automata demo! Perhaps we’ll hear more about this during this live stream…?

Personally… I won’t be able to watch this live as it’s happening since my company scheduled an “enkai” that night. I’m really sorry about that, but I will get home to report the new goodness as soon as I can! Thanks!!

Watch the live broadcast at the following sites:

NieR:Automata at Jump Festa 2017!

Just a couple days ago (maybe yesterday, even? I’ve lost track…), Producer Yosuke Saito posted a couple photos of a sweet hoodie with the YoRHa logo and 2B, but we’ve just learned more about it.

Apparently, NieR:Automata will be featured at the Jump Festa on December 17 and 18! They will be releasing a new trailer as well as offering this cool hoodie for 4,200 yen at the official SQEX Goods Shop! But be prepared… it’s only available in one size: Large! I don’t really know why they couldn’t offer other sizes, but…. 😛 The hoodie will eventually go to the e-STORE after this event.

NieR Merchandise Now Available Through the SQEX e-STORE



Items are now available for purchase on the SQEX e-STORE here. Everything seems to still be in stock, but the scripts appear to be on back order.*

*All items besides the Emil pin and sticker set are currently on back order.

Also, please note that these items are only sold within Japan. SQEX is not accepting any international orders at this time.

NieR Merchandise on the e-STORE not available internationally

I sent an inquiry a couple days ago to the SQEX e-STORE regarding international sales of NieR merchandise when it becomes available online, and I just heard back from them. This was their reply:


Essentially, whatever items that become available in the e-STORE (from noon on April 22) are only valid to those within Japan. SQEX will *not* be conducting any international sales nor shipping internationally. T_T

I’m going to continue to cross my fingers for all the international fans that should these initial goods sell extremely well, SQEX will see how many people love this series that eventually anyone outside of Japan will get the chance to own some of these items!!
