Like many of you I was simply blown away by Nier Automata the game was like nothing else I have ever seen before, a truly breath taking, beautiful and badass game. And like many of you I wish I had the chance to play anything else from this world. Thankfully the gaming gods have lkooked down on us and blessed us with NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
Now this is where things get complicated. So Nier Automata was the 2017 spiritual successor to the 2010 game Nier Gestalt, but that game had its own alternative Japanese release titled Nier Replicant[, one that featured a younger protagonist. And to celebrate it’s 10 year anniversary Play Station are doing a sort of rerelease of the game. AIt is not a basic rerelease, nor is it a full remaster, just a overhaul and upgrade. Thus it’s name NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… with the number 1.22474487139 being the square route of 1.5.
In the game you will play as Nier who uses his blade to perform combo attacks on a multitude of enemies; he is also able to use a magical book to shoot projectiles at enemies for a short period of time. As the player advances through the game, more powers as well as a variety of different weapons will be at the disposal of the player. On the surface this is very different than the 2017 rerelase but it does have a lot of similarities and this is quite the treat for us fans.
One I will be purchasing myself.
