Popular League of Legends professional Zach ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi revealed his new, stunning cosplay of Nier:Automata character 2B in what is yet another mind-blowing look from him. 

Nier: Automata, a hack and slash action game which is a follow-up to the original Nier title, released back in 2017 to much acclaim from critics and fans across the globe. 

In the game, players are tasked with completing three difficult chapters – each coming with their own character. The first of which is YoRHa No. 2 Type B, or 2B for short, a battle-android that has battled through wars and is well known for the close-quarters combat abilities – while also having a ranged attack in the form of the ‘Pod Shot’.

Sneaky has partnered his League of Legends success with incredible cosplays too.

While the character is a machine at the end of the day, it’s unique look means that it is pretty primed for cosplayers – so, that’s where Sneaky comes in.

The former Cloud9 pro, who has wowed fans with his ability to pull-off stunning cosplays of members of the opposite sex in the past, pulled off the cosplay with some incredible accuracy.

Just like 2B has in Nier:Automata’s Route A chapter, Sneaky suited up in a flowing black dress that has a tonne of details towards the very bottom, and a cut-out slot just near the chest area. With 2B also having a military visor covering her eyes, no cosplay would be complete with pulling that out – something which Sneaky, of course, managed to do. 

As usual, Sneaky took the look to the next level by completing it by carrying a brutal-looking sword and making it a focal point of his shoot.

With Nier: Automata having plenty of other characters, there’s some more scope for the former Cloud9 player to explore the game’s world and pick out another cosplay. If he does, though, remains to be seen as he could pull off pretty much any look he puts his mind to.

Mortal Kombat is one of the gaming universe’s most iconic franchises and has recently acquired its own movie. One cosplayer has chosen to celebrate in style by transforming into the icy Sub-Zero.

If there’s one franchise that almost every gamer knows about it’s Mortal Kombat. The iconic fighting game has spawned a loyal fanbase, as well as a host of spinoff media, including the 2021 movie of the same name.

The game has even been picked up by sugar free energy drink behemoths GFUEL, who have created 11 unique flavors are inspired by the title’s main characters.

Just in time for the movie dropping on April 16, one fan has created an insane cosplay that will leave you feeling a little chilly.

Sub-Zero cosplay brings in the Ice Shower

Sub-Zero has become one of the game’s most popular characters. The Chinese cryomancer has the power to bend ice to his will, making him a pretty fierce opponent.

Polish cosplayer Cyprian has brought Sub-Zero into the real world with an amazing series of cosplay images. One of these shows him channelling some inner peace while contemplating how best to pull off the perfect fatality as the ice bender.

Seen sporting the character’s deep navy samurai style armor, coupled with the Oni style mask that covers the bottom half of his face, we really wouldn’t want to run into him in the middle of a frosty winter forest.

It’s not just the outfit that makes Cyprian stand out above other cosplayers, it’s his menacing attitude that makes him the perfect Sub-Zero.

Cyprian as some fun as Sub-Zero

When he’s not glaring into the camera though, the Pole is making the Mortal Kombat assassin into an almost lovable character.

One of the best images from the series is of him recreating the classic high kicks that are seen throughout the series, and in turn have become one of the images fans are most familiar with.

A second video shows him dancing away to ‘Ice Ice Baby,’ and considering it has garnered an astounding 2k likes, it’s safe to say fans want to drop the beat with Cyprian’s Sub-Zero.

The attention to detail in this cosplay is amazing. With the upcoming movie and awesome art like this, we can’t wait to see if  Cyprian brings us any more Mortal Kombat cosplays.

We’d love to see Scorpion, the series’ resurrected Ninja, get down to ‘Rock You Like a Hurricane.’ Why? Because he’s a Scorpion after all!
