OPPO Ace2 has a Neon Genesis Evangelion Edition

And we want it!

Published

It looks like OPPO is making it a habit to partner with mech-inspired franchises. After the Gundam collaboration last year, we’re now treated to a Neon Genesis Evangelion Edition of the OPPO Ace2.

The phone itself is based on EVA-01 — the mech that the show’s main protagonist, Shinji Ikari, pilots. Accompanying the phone are accessories that are also Eva-inspired.

The box housing the phone resembles the capsule that the Eva pilots have to get into. You also get a smartphone case that follows EVA-01’s color scheme and resembles a shield that also made an appearance on the anime. Even the tiniest accessory — the SIM card ejector tool — is in the shape of the Spear of Longinus — another nod to the show.

It doesn’t end there.

Other OPPO devices are also getting the Evangelion treatment. The 40W wireless charging pad sports the NERV logo — the organization responsible for the giant mechs.

There’s also an OPPO Enco W31 true wireless earbuds that follows the design of best girl Rei Ayanami.

And lastly, there’s the OPPO Watch fashioned in the theme of Asuka Langley.

OPPO Ace2

The OPPO Ace2 didn’t get any more power-ups. Not that it needed any as it’s powered by the Qualcoom Snapdragon 865 S0C with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It’s a 6.5-inch phone with a 90Hz refresh rate display.

It has four rear cameras: 48 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP, and a 16MP selfie shooter. Lastly it has a 4000mAh battery with support for 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge and 40W Air VOOC wireless fast charging.

Pricing and availability

The OPPO Ace2 Eva Edition will sell in China with only 10,000 units available. It will retail for CNY 4,999.

Pricing for the accessories are as follows:

  • Oppo Enco W31 TWS — CNY 399
  • OPPO Watch — CNY 2,199
  • Air VOOC Wireless Charger — CNY 299

All products will go on sale on June 1, 2020.

NieR Replicant

Square Enix came into Tokyo Game Show 2020 with a big announcement in mind. Even though it was an online show, the developers behind Final Fantasy and Marvel’s Avengers have something brewing up for the year. This time, they’ve decided to focus on a market-exclusive title —  NieR Replicant — ready for a more worldwide stage.

To kickoff the Tokyo Game Show, they’ve announced the arrival of NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139. If you haven’t heard of NieR Replicant before, that’s totally reasonable because this was a Japan-exclusive release. Essentially, Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 is a remaster of the original game released in 2010 for Japanese players.

NieR Replicant is the most anticipated sequel to the post-apocalyptic RPG, NieR Automata. This prequel delves into a darker world that sees you going on a quest for a cure. Also, joining you in this quest is Grimoire Weiss in search for the “Sealed Verses.” For Automata players, you may be familiar with it as he appears as downloadable content for the game.

The prequel will be available on April 22, 2021 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Meanwhile, its PC release on Steam will be on April 24, 2021.
