NieR Replicant announced
Original Japanese version of Nier is getting remastered for Western release
Square Enix has announced that the third-person action-RPG, NieR Replicant, is to be rebuilt for PC and consoles.
2010's Nier was originally intended to be exclusive to the Xbox 360, but after deciding to also develop the game for PlayStation 3, the developers decided to further divide the Japanese release of the game. Nier Gestalt would be released for the Xbox 360, featuring the adult Nier, while Nier Replicant, for the PlayStation 3, would feature the young Nier.
For the first time in the West after the original game’s Japanese debut in 2010, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 invites players into a dark, apocalyptic world as they join a brother’s quest to cure his sister of a deadly disease. Developed in collaboration with Toylogic, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 brings together director YOKO TARO (Drakengard / NieR:Automata), composer Keiichi Okabe (TEKKEN / Drakengard / NieR:Automata), and producer Yosuke Saito (DRAGON QUEST X / NieR:Automata).
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
