To commemorate the upcoming release of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 a special fair will be held at Animate locations. However, this event is limited to Japanese audiences. From April 9 to May 16, 2021 consumers can make NieR related purchases such as books, games, and character goods to receive a special reward. This also includes the reservation of CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Rays. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
Consumers can make purchases of ¥2,000 or more (roughly $18) through the Animate fair to receive a special NieR Replicant clear bookmark featuring an illustration from the upcoming “upgraded” version of the original. Those who are not able to make it to physical locations can also purchase items through the Animate Japan online storefront.
Additionally, the official website notes that the fair is subject to be postponed or canceled at any time due to various circumstances. The exact reasons are not listed.
For those abroad, NieR Replicant has a special collector’s edition. The White Snow Edition will come at a hefty cost, but features more than a handful of exclusive items. This includes a set of special pins, a script set, and the original soundtrack.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 will release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Japan on April 22, 2021, and April 23, 2021, in the West for PS4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide.
