If you’re a fan of the NieR series (or maybe you like reciting the digits to pi), you’ll be happy to know that Square Enix announced that its current gen remaster of NieR Replicant is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Entitled NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… (we dare you to memorize that), this upgraded version will come with extra content as well as some costumes and music from NieR: Automata.
Fans of the NieR series and newcomers alike can jump into this upgraded version of NieR Replicant, and immerse themselves in a dark, apocalyptic world with fully remastered visuals, enhanced combat and gameplay, a re-recorded soundtrack, and all-new voice dialogue. The game also includes brand-new story content, extra dungeons, costumes and more, including:
- Extra Episode – Players can enjoy a new scenario and exhilarating boss battle by playing through the game, in an all new “Mermaid” episode featuring a wrecked ship and a little girl.
- Extra Dungeons from “15 Nightmares” – Previously released as downloadable content for the original release in Japan and similar to “The World of Recycled Vessel” content in the West, fans will be able to undertake a series of challenging dungeons as the “15 Nightmares” protagonist in the world of recycled vessel. Playing through the dungeons will unlock a variety of weapons, as well as extra costumes, “Kabuki” and “Samurai.” You will also be able to change the appearance of enemy bullets to Emil’s face through the option menu after obtaining either of the costumes.
- Soundtrack from NieR:Automata – Players will unlock an option to switch to select background music tracks from the critically acclaimed NieR:Automata after completing the first playthrough.
- Guest Cast from NieR:Automata – The English and Japanese voice actors of 2B and 9S will be featured in the game.
In addition to the costumes obtainable from “15 Nightmares”, starting at launch, players will be able to download a free “4 YoRHa” costume pack to swap their character’s costumes and weapons to fan favorite designs from NieR:Automata, including 9S, 2B and A2.
Additionally, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…’s critically-acclaimed original soundtrack featuring 45 tracks is now available for purchase digitally on iTunes, Amazon Music and PlayStation™Network and physically through the Square Enix Store.
