During the WonHobbyG Spring 2022 event in Akihabara, Good Smile shared updates and announcements on a variety of upcoming figures.
A2 from NieR:Automata is receiving a short-haired version Nendoroid. This announcement is odd since an A2 Nendoroid figure already exists, though she simply has long hair in that version. I feel like this new release could have just been a head attachment for the already released figure. This Nendoroid has also been clarified to be released by Square Enix.

The NieR Replicant Kaine Play Arts Kai figure is available for pre-order via Square Enix Japan’s digital storefront for ¥20,680 ahead of an estimated January 28, 2023 release date.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is a remake of NieR Gestalt, which was released exclusively in Japan. The series is a spin-off of the Drakengard series but found fame after the release of NieR: Automata. Some say it was for the action systems, others say it was for the attractive characters. Regardless, it’s a rather pretty game.
During gameplay, players will join a rather untraditional party of characters as they each fight against enemies known as Shades. The gameplay also allows players the chance to take on side missions and even fish. Voiced lines have been added to the game, with the same cast of voice actors.
