The Japanese version of NieR: Automata featured an item named 'NIN64' which could be fished and exchanged at the shop. The description of the item was described as "“Trash that was fished up. Can be exchanged at the shop.". A few players who were fans of the console Nintendo 64 were displeased as they found the item name tasteless. They took there complaints onto twitter about the item as they thought that SquareEnix were making fun of the console, the Nintendo 64. 'NIN64' was also said to be a reference to an anti-aircraft missile launcher from the fifties which was named 'MIM-64' which many thought made more sense. However players complaints regarding the item name and how close it was to the term Nintendo 64, has caused SquareEnix and PlatinumGames to rename the item to 'Broken Launcher' which was later changed in the 1.03 patch for the Japanese version of NieR: Automata.
