NieR Automata Prequel ‘NieR Replicant’ to be Rebuilt by Square Enix

Three years ago, PlatinumGames released the stand-out JRPG, NieR: Automata. The video game was applauded for its incredible gameplay and stellar story. However, it was only part of the story. In 2010, we first experienced this post-apocalyptic world with NieR: Replicant.

Now, a new trailer by Square Enix has surfaced announcing that the prequel is being rebuilt for modern consoles. This rebuilt version will be known as NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139….

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.

NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is being developed in collaboration with Toylogic. Acclaimed director, YOKO TARO (NieR:Automata) will return for the rebuild. Coming along for the ride will also be composer Keiichi Okabe (NieR:Automata) and producer Yosuke Saito (NieR:Automata). The rebuilt game will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
