During the Tokyo Game Show 2020 which is taking place right now, during the conference dedicated to Square Enix, a new trailer dedicated to NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139, the new remastered version of the first title in the series of action role-playing games released way back in 2010 exclusively for PlayStation 3. After the enormous success achieved by Never Automata, the Japanese publisher wanted to revive the first chapter of this dystopian epic created by Yoko Taro on the occasion of its XNUMXth anniversary. In the aforementioned movie, in addition to showing some new glimpses of the world and the setting of the action title developed by the guys from Toylogic, the release date of this highly anticipated remaster has finally been revealed, which will be released on April 23, 2021 in the West, while fans in the Land of the Rising Sun will be able to start playing it the day before.
In its first release, NieR Replicant - and its counterpart, NieR Gestalt, released for the Japanese market only - it did not achieve great success and was heavily crushed by the critics, who underline the criticalities in its technical part, in the gameplay and in the general sense of monotony present throughout the duration of the main campaign. Due to all these problems the first chapter of this series, in turn sequel to Drakengard always born from the mind of Yoko Taro, it did not have the hoped-for success and for this reason Square Enix has decided to give new life to this project, proposing it in a new guise that will surely give new life to this unfortunate action game.
This new version of NieR Replicant, which among other things will add a new character and a recomposed and orchestrated soundtrack complete with new exclusive tracks, is coming on April 23, 2021 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One e PC, and at the moment no possible conversion has been discussed for next-gen consoles as well.
