Nier: Automata's sexualized character designs—which have inspired years of essays and critique about how they fit into creator Yoko Taro's games—do not seem like the most natural skins for Fall Guys' goofy multiplayer and freakish skeletons. But this is now a thing that exists in the world, and we have to live with that. I've seen it, and I'm forcing you to see it too. I am sorry.

The 2B skin for Fall Guys is out on June 18th.
