Could We Actually See a Stellar Blade x Nier Automata Crossover?
By Yung Namahage • 3 weeks ago

We already know that Stellar Blade was a hit, and Shift Up have started to consider future plans for the title, including DLC, a PC port and even a sequel.

At a recent press conference, Shift Up went into a bit more detail regarding what's coming to Stellar Blade. First of all, a photo mode is scheduled to drop in August, which I'm surprised they didn't have already, but better late than never. There's also a new skin for Eve coming in October, but after that things start to get a lot more interesting.

In December, Stellar Blade is supposedly getting a DLC crossover with another IP. Which IP it'll be is still a mystery, but the rumor mill has agreed it's most likely Nier Automata. The two games' destinies have been tied ever since Shift UP CEO Kim Hyung Tae confirmed Nier Automata was a big inspiration on Stellar Blade, and he looked up to Nier creator Yoko Taro. Then Taro returned the favor by announcing he was hyped for Stellar Blade as much as anyone else. Both Eve and 2b have a ton of crossover art (and R34, obviously), and seeing the two big booty androids hack n slashing together would be a dream come true for fans of both games.

Before you get your hopes up, remember this has all come from reports of a private press conference, and whatever IP they plan to cross over with hasn't been specified just yet. Until it is, this is all just speculation, and after that Shin Megami Tensei Slipknot collab they could be crossing over with fucking Limp Bizkit for all we know. Imagine Eve packing a chainsaw in a red Yankees cap. Now that's a crossover I'd like to see more than 2B.
