Here’s a nice surprise, Nier Replicant is getting a remake for the PS4, Xbox and PC. This is a great time to play and/or finish Automata if you haven’t already!
In the year of the 10th anniversary of NieR, we are announcing that the cult classic third-person action-RPG NieR Replicant, is to be rebuilt for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (STEAM) as NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
NieR Replicant is the prequel of the critically acclaimed success NieR:Automata.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… invites players into a dark, apocalyptic world as they join a brother’s captivating quest to cure his sister of a deadly disease – a quest which will in turn make them question everything.
Developed in collaboration with Toylogic, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… brings together an all-star team including acclaimed director, YOKO TARO (Drakengard / NieR:Automata), composer Keiichi Okabe (TEKKEN / Drakengard / NieR:Automata), and producer Yosuke Saito (DRAGON QUEST X / NieR:Automata).
Just to note, the original Nier launched in two forms in Japan – NieR Gestalt on Xbox 360 and NieR Replicant on PS3. The main difference was that the 360 version had an older main character, while the PS3 version had the younger one. On the international scale, we got the older protagonist.
The remaster looks to be of NieR Replicant, meaning it features the younger protagonist which is cool for us western fans. So what do you guys think? Are you hyped for Nier Replicant?
