The new version of NieR will be released for PC on April 23, 2021 via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, publisher Square Enix announced.
It’s called – wait for it – NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 ….
NieR, a spin-off from the Drakengard series, was first launched in 2010, although Japan later received a different version called the NieR Replicant, which changed its main character and was not released anywhere else.
It is this version that is being brought back to the current generation consoles and will be available for the first time ever on PC.
Of course, the series gained far more prominence on these shores with the launch of the sequel NieR Automata in 201
Pre-orders include a dynamic theme and avatar for PS4, as well as a digital soundtrack for PS4, Xbox One and Steam.
