Dubbed "The World of Recycled Vessel," the download sees "the pages of a diary open a gate to a strange world that mixes past and present," meaning that those who opt to shell out for the add-on will be able to:
Play as young Nier, conquer 15 difficult challenge levels to unlock two sets of alternate costumes for Nier, Emil and Kaine, three powerful weapons that only a "Fool" would miss out on, enjoy new music unique to The World of Recycled Vessel and a bonus quest that challenges you to destroy your woolliest adversaries!
Priced at 560 Microsoft Points / €6.99 / $6.99, "The World of Recycled Vessel" DLC is due to hit Europe in Xbox 360 form on Tuesday, May 11, followed on PlayStation 3 come Wednesday, May 12. North American release details have yet to be confirmed, though such add-on content often hits multiple territories at the same time and price.
[Update - 3:15pm CST] Square has now confirmed that the "Recycled Vessel" downloadable content for NIER will hit North America on Tuesday, May 11.
