Last month, it was leaked that last year’s surprise hit NieR:Automata would be getting a new game of the year edition called Game of the YoRHa Edition for PlayStation 4 and PC. Now this new edition of the game has been officially announced and details about it have been revealed.

In a recent press release, publisher Square Enix announced that NieR:Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition will be coming to PS4 and PC on February 26, 2019, just in time for the game’s second anniversary. This new edition will contain the base game, the 3C3C1D119440927 DLC, and several in-game accessories, including the Grimoire Weiss Pod Skin, the Retro Grey Pod Skin, the Retro Red Pod Skin, the Cardboard Pod Skin, and the Machine Mask Accessory. Additionally, those who buy the PS4 version of the game will receive a new PlayStation Theme, 15 PlayStation Network avatars, the Play Pod Skin, and the amazarashi Pod Skin, while those who buy the PC version will get the Valve Accessory and two new PC wallpapers. Both the PS4 and PC versions will cost $39.99.

Since its original release in 2017, NieR:Automata has received high praise from both critics and fans, an Xbox One version of the game called the BECOME AS GODS Edition was released, the game’s protagonist 2B was announced as a guest fighter in SoulCalibur VI, and 3.5 million copies of the game have been sold worldwide.
