It will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC in April.
NieR: Replicant (or NieR: Replicant ver.1.22474487139 … as officially known) appeared on PCs and consoles on April 23, with 9 minutes of gameplay footage for those who are longing for arrival. You can be distracted. Of a brand new trailer.
NieR: Replicant is an extended version of the original NieR, for those of you who don’t know. It was available in two different formats when it was released in Japan in April 2010. The PS3 version (ver.1.22474487139 is a remaster) is known as the NieR: Replicant and features a young protagonist, while the Xbox 360 version of NieR: Gestalt starred the old protagonist.
Set before the NieR: Automata event (although the two games are only loosely related), NieR: Replicant finds a famous sealed poem and saves his younger sister in the village. Tells the story of a “kind young man” leaving. He accompanies a trip with a strange story book known as Grimoire Weiss.
NieR: Replicant ver.1.22474487139 aims to improve the original game with enhanced visuals, re-recorded audio, new conversations, and reworked combat a bit closer to the system in NieR: Automata. It is said. The latter element is properly displayed in the newly released 9-minute gameplay footage from Square Enix above.
Focusing on the area known as the Barren Temple, it will showcase a combination of exploration and combat, culminating in a boss battle with a swarm of perceptual cubes. Hopefully that’s enough until the April 23 release of NieR: Replicant on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
