More information about the NieR Replicant “upgrade” has surfaced. As previously reported, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 … (which will be called NieR Replicant from here forward) is an upgrade, and not a remaster or remake. The developers explained that this is due to the volume of content that will be included. This also includes new music and extended songs. [Thanks, Nibel and Game’s Talk!]
In comparison to the original version, the Replicant upgrade will feature more music, and re-recorded versions of original songs. These re-recordings have been brushed up. Composer Keiichi Okabe also mentioned that the length of some songs have been extended as requested by Yoko Taro.
In our previous report, it was revealed in a developer interview that the camera work for Replicant will remain the same. However, some revisions have been made. In addition to this, the combat will be refined so that fans of NieR Automata won’t be disappointed. Taro also mentioned that Takahisa Taura of PlatinumGames is working on checking the action parts of Replicant.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 … is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. NieR Gestalt and NieR Replicant first released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in April 2010. The game recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. Check out the official website here.
