Modders have managed to rip the assets from the PC version of Platinum Games’ Nier: Automata. Do you know what that means? It means that 2B’s model file is floating around out there on the interwebs, ripe for the software manipulation and data molesting that only the deepest, darkest desires of a modder can come up with. So what did they come up with? Well, a port of 2B’s model into Dead or Alive 5: Last Round.
The mod features YoRHa unit 2B (also known as 2E) in both her Gothic black skirt, along with her data reader (which conveniently looks like an eyepatch) and physics for all the right places. The skirt can also be removed, just like in Nier: Automata.
The mod was also updated to include eyelashes, better hair texture re-coloring and some minor fixes to 2B’s thighs. Just like in the original game on PS4 and PC, you’ll notice that the tights she’s wearing under the leather boots stretch around her thighs just below her cheeks, and you can see the slight push up of the skin exactly the way the mesh is rendered in Nier: Automata. It’s practically 1:1.
Some additional hair rigging was also done, but huchi001 notes that the “rigging is not good”.
Of course, you can judge for yourself exactly how the mod looks and works by checking out the mod in action with the demonstration video that was put together by yahiro, which is more of a body appreciation compilation, but who’s complaining?
I have to say, huchi001 did a fantastic job with the model and importing it into Dead or Alive 5: Last Round.
The clipping is minimal, her movements match up over Momiji perfectly, and both the skirt and skirtless version look spot on.
If you would rather see 2B’s body in action in the open-world environment from the creative mind of Yoko Taro, you can do so by picking up a digital copy of Nier: Automata right now from the Steam store. If you’re okay with appreciating the android’s curves and callipygian in Team Ninja’s fighter, you can grab Dead or Alive 5: Last Round from over on Steam as well.
That’s not to mention that PC gamers get the added benefit of nude mods… so yeah. But even without making 2B completely lewd, just seeing her frolic around in the water in the leotard thong should be enough to get the juices flowing in all the right places.
And don’t forget to send your thanks to Yoko Taro for allowing YoRHa unit 2B to make her way to PC, because without Platinum porting the game to PC we wouldn’t have all these lovely mods for (and from) the game coming out.
