It’s easy for fans to get behind characters by uploading their own art online. Thanks to Nier: Automata protagonist 2B’s tush, the internet certainly has done a lot of that. And the game’s creator would like it if you could send it his way in a handy ZIP file. 

While video game butts certainly are nothing new, there was an image from the game’s demo purporting to show the character’s bunghole. Heh. But as noted on Daily Dot, some claim that the image was Photoshopped. 

Taro Yoko chimed in on Twitter, writing, “Because of the brouhaha over 2B’s butt, there are loads of rude drawings and whatnot being uploaded [online]. And since going around and collecting them is a pain, I’d like it if I could get them sent in a zip file every week.”

Yoko later tweeted how just by writing “Gimme a zip of 2B art,” he got just that. “The internet is amazing,” he added. 

The tweet below reads:

“When I got up, my mentions were filled with English.”

He might not have expected all the English language interest in video game butts.

I’m having a hard time figuring out the situation that lead to how that robo-anus shot came to be. Is it a screen cap from combat? Did she get decked and her skirt flew up when she hit the ground? Why is she wearing a white thong too thin to cover her glory hole? Would an android even care if her butthole was exposed for all to see. Ah, the mysteries!
