Get ready to experience where the NieR series all began - NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is in development now for PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam)!

The cult classic third person action RPG is being developed in collaboration with Toylogic, and an incredibly talented team, including:

  • Director YOKO TARO (Drakengard / NieR:Automata)
  • Composer Keiichi Okabe (TEKKEN / Drakengard / NieR:Automata)
  • Producer Yosuke Saito (DRAGON QUEST X / NieR:Automata)

Take a look at the new trailer:

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is puts you in the role of the titular Nier, a young man on a quest to cure his sister Yonah of a deadly disease. What they discover will make them question everything they thought they knew…

The original NieR release has an interesting history. In Japan, there were two versions of the game: NieR Replicant and NieR Gestalt.

NieR Replicant focused on Brother Nier and his sister Yonah. In NieR Gestalt, the main character was Father Nier, and Yonah his daughter.

Only NieR Gestalt released in the West (under the name NIER) - so excitingly, this will be the first time many people will have played the Replicant version of the game!
