The world got an early look at the first NieR: Automata expansion this week. And it looks like Yoko Taro and the rest of the team at PlatinumGames is preparing an even stranger collection of experiences for 3C3C1D119440927 than we saw during NieR: Automata s m a i n campaign.

How strange?

Get ready to watch 2B and 9S square off with Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda and Platinum Games President Kenichi Sato. Both of whom emit waves of bullets resembling their own faces.

Yeah. It’s that strange.

We don’t have any context for the showdown with the games industry executives. But this isn’t an April Fools’ joke either. Matsuda and Sato will both be ready to challenge NieR: Automata ’s android protagonists when 3C3C1D119440927 hits PSN and Steam in the coming months, and that’s just the start of what we’ll find in the NieR: Automata expansion.

The upcoming DLC also includes new costumes for all three of the game’s playable characters. Well, 9S and A6 get new clothes. 2B gets a scrap of cloth that covers just enough for Square Enix to avoid changing the “Partial Nudity” warning on NieR: Automata ’s ESRB label. All of the new gear will be unlockable by completing coliseum challenges. But that's not all we can expect from 3C3C1D119440927. Square Enix isn't saying much else right now, but the wait for new information shouldn’t be long. Square Enix says the expansion will hit Japan on May 2; however, there’s no word on when the first NieR: Automata DLC will head to North America.

For an early look at 3C3C1D119440927, take a few minutes to check out the NieR: Automata trailer that debuted Monday morning. Then head down to the comments section and let us know what else you’re hoping to see in NieR: Automata ’s first expansion when 3C3C1D119440927 heads stateside later this year.

NieR: Automata is currently available on PlayStation 4 and PC. The game’s first expansion, 3C3C1D119440927 , doesn’t have a North American release date yet.
