Due to the relatively high cost of creating new games, developers are increasingly moving towards remakes and remasters – this is much less risky. And the game with a rather long name NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139, which was released today, April 23, on PC and consoles, is an excellent confirmation of this. The original project was released back in 2010, and now the developers have slightly updated the content, finalizing the gameplay and optimization to give the audience of fans the opportunity to once again plunge into the world of brave adventures and difficult battles. Although, for most, it will be a completely new game, not a re-release.
The fact is that the original NieR Replicant was released exclusively in Japan – there was no localization or official release outside the country. Accordingly, only the most ardent fans of the genre who were able to master the Japanese language passed it ten years ago. Now the creators of the project provide a game adapted for the European gamer, which, according to the developers themselves, was created entirely from scratch. They even declare that this is not a remake or remaster, but a separate full-fledged release, which, however, looks more like a marketing gimmick, because the main storyline, characters and action have remained the same.
Yes, for NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 we completely re-recorded all the musical compositions, re-voiced dialogues and even made changes to the gameplay. Also, the developers promise a lot of new content – a character about which there was no previous information, amazing opponents, and so on. Of course, the list of changes does not pull on a completely created game from scratch, but fans of the more famous NieR: Automata will be interested to know the plot of this project, as well as to understand what and how the young man NieR is trying to save his sister Yona.
