Today’s issue of Famitsu magazine features 6 pages worth on NieR:Automata. We get some more information regarding the Plug-in Chips that you equip to give you unique abilities in and out of battle. You are able to equip up to three different chips at once to give you added customization of your character and gameplay preferences.
We’re also introduced to a “new” character, Anemone; however she is not exactly new. She is a returning character from the YoRHa stage play, which you can read here.
Briefly, Anemone is a survivor from the 8th Machine War. She lived with Rose and several other Resistance androids on the islands of Hawaii.
|Highlight for further spoilers from the play: [?When the first generation YoRHa androids are sent on the Pearl Harbor mission, the Resistance teams up with them but are utterly decimated in the battle with the Bio-machines. The last we see of Anemone is when she is forced to kill YoRHa No21 because she was infected with the Bio-machine virus. We were lead to assume that Anemone died there as well. ]|
We’ve already seen a photo of Anemone in her green hood?back in November, which I discussed in this post. It looks as though the eye insignia may represent the Resistance.
These pages of Famitsu listed Anemone’s voice actress as Kanou Chiaki, however, in Famitsu No.1468, they printed a correction. Anemone will be voiced by the same voice actress as Operator 21O, Hatsumi Meari.
