Standing in his way are forces beyond imagining: Stone fragments. Sacrifice. Wolves. A little mermaid. The twins. Each is another step toward the truth of the world-and another step on his path to reclaim what has been lost.

NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is a remake of NieR Gestalt, which was released exclusively in Japan. The series is a spin-off of the Drakengard series but found fame after the release of NieR: Automata. Some say it was for the action systems; others say it was for the attractive characters. Regardless, it’s a rather pretty game.
During gameplay, players will join a rather untraditional party of characters as they each fight against enemies known as Shades. The gameplay also allows players the chance to take on side missions and even fish. Voiced lines have been added to the game, with the same cast.
