The story begins as the protagonist, accompanied by Grimoire Weiss — a floating and talking tone — on a journey to find the “Sealed verses” to save his ill sister Yonah. This game is the prequel to the world acclaimed, NieR: Automata, which was released in 2017, so players do not have to worry about playing that before this one. Compared to NieR: Automata’s famous 26 possible endings, this remastered only has four.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 will be available on Apr. 23 to PS4, Xbox One and Steam. As long as you pre-order before 4 p.m. UTC, which is 9 a.m. PST, you will receive mini-digital soundtracks on all three platforms. Also, PS4 players will get an avatar set and dynamic theme, while Steam players will receive a wallpaper collection.
Besides the basic physical and digital edition, there is also a special edition called the “White Snow Edition”, which is only available for purchase through the Square Enix store. It will include a physical standard edition of the game, a Grimoire Pin Set of three: a script set that has seven books of the game’s spoken script, the two-disc original soundtrack, a steelbook case and a Lunar Tear collector’s box.
