NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is the remaster of the original NieR, released years ago on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. According to producer Yosuke Saito, there are plenty of secrets yet to be revealed, so the game may end up being more than just a remaster.
To be honest, I still don’t get the ‘upgraded version’ part, even after you explained it in the livestream. There are various representations for what makes a remake or remaster, but what’s the same and what changed from the PS3 version?
Yosuke Saito: “There are just so many secrets, I can’t say anything… [laughs]. In any case, please look forward to it. I think that even if the story is the same, you should feel something completely different with it being fully-voiced.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A final release date has yet to be confirmed.
