Level Infinite and Shift Up tease a brand-new collaboration between Goddess of Victory: NIKKE and Square Enix’s prolific NieR franchise. The announcement coincides with the 13th anniversary of NieR: Replicant and NieR: Gestalt’s release in Japan.
A new teaser trailer for Goddess of Victory: NIKKE was released via the game’s official Twitter account. The teaser trailer displays the original Goddess of Victory: NIKKE logo before morphing some of its letter font to the same font depicted in NieR: Automata’s logo. NieR: Automata characters A2 and 2B may be on their way to Goddess of Victory: NIKKE, but further details were not revealed. However, NieR creator Yoko Taro teases fans by quote tweeting “NikkE…” over the announcement tweet by the official Goddess of Victory: NIKKE Twitter account.

The collaboration teaser comes exactly 13 years after the original release of NieR: Replicant and NieR: Gestalt in Japan for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 respectively. In the west, fans would receive NieR: Gestalt as NieR for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on April 27, 2010. NieR: Replicant would receive a remaster titled NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, which released on April 23, 2021 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
This past February, Goddess of Victory: NIKKE collaborated with hit anime and manga series Chainsaw Man. Popular Chainsaw Man characters such as Makima, Himeno, and Power would lend their aid as playable NIKKEs. Additionally, the long-awaited PC version of Goddess of Victory: NIKKE would release around the same time.
Square Enix’s next major release is Final Fantasy XVI. The new action RPG tells the tale of Clive Rosfield, the Shield of Rosaria. Players will experience his story from his teens to his thirties as he learns more about the world and the bitter struggle for power over Valisthea’s crystals. Final Fantasy XVI launches June 22 for PlayStation 5.
Lastly, Goddess of Victory: NIKKE is available now for Android, iOS, and PC via Windows worldwide.
