Along with 2B re-issue announcement, Flare will release a brand new NieR:Automata 9S (YoRHa No. 9 Type S) figure, expected to hit the shelf early 2022.
The well-received 2B certainly set the the bar high on the upcoming 9S figure; from the official photos the quality does not disappoint us. 9S adapts a static pose which matches perfectly with the 2B figure. The standard 9S wears the standard battle uniform with the heat-radiating shorts plus the blindfold on this face. The Cruel Oath (sword) on his hand and the buckles on the uniform are painted in bronze metallic color which gives a nice contrast to the matte-black uniform color.
Like 2B, 9S comes with a DX version which includes an extra shortless body part plus the uncover head sculpt, which reveals his amateurish face. His Tactical Support Unit Pod 153 is included exclusively in the DX version. 9S and Pod 153 comes with separate display stands.
NieR:Automata 9S (YoRHa No. 9 Type S) is now available for pre-order on Square-Enix Shop US while supply last. Both standard and DX version are expected to release in February 2022.
