Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout gets 2B skin with Nier collaboration

Mediatonic showed off its 2B Fall Guys skin during Summer Game Fest 2021.


Ever since Mediatonic released Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout last year, the last-man-standing battle royale game has seen content continuously added. Not only have players gotten new stages and modes, but there have also been a slew of new cosmetics added, many of which are based on other video game franchises. That’s the case with today’s news, as Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout appeared during Summer Game Fest 2021 to debut a new trailer, revealing that 2B from Nier will be getting a skin in the game.

The brief Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout trailer was shown during the Summer Game Fest 2021 livestream and shows an iconic Fall Guys bean character wearing a 2B costume (2Bean anyone?). Fans of 2017’s Nier: Automata will instantly recognize 2B as the protagonist of the action-RPG.

It’s currently unclear how many crowns the 2B Fall Guys skin will cost. That said, players can hit the stage as 2B when the Nier skin comes to Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout on June 18. 2B is just the latest in a long line of popular video game characters to make an appearance in Mediatonic’s battle royale game show.
