Nier Replicant, a remastered version of the original Nier game, releases April 23, 2021 in North America. The release date was announced during the Nier Tokyo Game Show stream alongside new gameplay footage. Ahead of its release, you can preorder multiple editions of the game for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, including a pricey White Snow edition that’s sure to sell out prior to launch.
Officially titled Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139, the remaster has a fairly substantial visual overhaul, including new animations that will bring it closer to the look of its successor Nier Automata. Based on the trailer, it appears that Nier Replicant will remain authentic to the original with regards to gameplay. Those who played the original Western version of Nier will experience a slightly different story this time around. Instead of playing as a father seeking a cure for his daughter’s inexplicable disease, you’ll play as her brother, which mirrors the premise of Nier Replicant’s original release (previously only playable in Japanese).
Square Enix and Platinum Games haven’t revealed any details about possible next-gen versions of Nier Replicant. We already know it will be playable on Xbox Series X/S thanks to backward-compatibility. While not officially announced, we’d expect Nier Replicant to be playable on PS5 as well.
