NieR Replicant has always been a masterpiece, but this ‘version upgrade’ might be what finally gets it the widespread acclaim it deserves.
Despite ostensibly being an awards show, the main appeal from The Game Awards 2020 was the 40-odd trailers and announcements for new games.
This visually updated, ‘modern re-telling’ of 2010’s NieR Replicant’ has a release date: it comes to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on 23 April 2020.
Following the success of NieR Automata, ‘NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…’ will bring the original NieR to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in remastered form.
At Paris Games Week, Bandai Namco made an unexpected but very exciting announcement: 2B, of NieR: Automata fame, is coming to Soulcalibur VI.
Nier: Automata is one of the best games you’ll ever play, combining PlatinumGames action expertise with the mad genius of Yoko Taro.
2016 was an amazing year for games, but 2017 looks even better. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Dragon Quest XI, and Persona 5 are just a few of the highlights.
It’s time for Nier to get a current-gen remaster, or at least a port. It’s simply too important a game to be lost to haze of technological iteration.
