As many may be aware, the first Nier game is getting a full on remaster/remake, where the developers have overhauled a lot of the game, and updated it to modern standards. To show off how much better it looks, the opening cinematic has just been released.
Replicant follows the story of a brother who is trying to find a cure for his dying sister. It is set in the same apocalytpic land that many have become familiar with through Automata. The upcoming release will not only be getting visual upgrades, but also a newly recorded soundtrack by renowned composer Keiichi Okabe from MONACA (NieR series, TEKKEN, Drakengard 3).
Nier Replicant will be available for Steam, Xbox One and Playstation 4 on the 23rd of April, 2021. Those interested can order a copy of the White Snow or standard edition via the official website. The standard edition is available for $60/£50 whilst the White Snow Edition will set you back $160/£150.
