Square Enix has confirmed that NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 will come to the west for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam as a rebuilt version of the third-person action-RPG.
The game launched in Japan in 2010 but was never localized. The story invites players to a dark apocalyptic world where a brother is on a quest to cure his sister of a deadly disease. This leads him to question everything.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is being developed with Toylogic and brings together the entire development staff. Those working on the project are:
- Director – YOKO TARO (Drakengard / NieR: Automata)
- Composer – Keiichi Okabe (Tekken / Drakengard / NieR: Automata)
- Producer – Yosuke Saito (Dragon Quest X / NieR: Automata)
This will provide fans of the series a chance to play the game that never came west as it acts as a prequel to the events of NieR: Automata.
Additionally, Xbox gamers who haven’t experienced the NieR: Automata can do so when the game launches on Xbox Game Pass on April 2.
We’ll be sure to follow the development of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 as more details are shared. For now, the team has only shared a short trailer. However, the gameplay was not shown.
