Square Enix via Twitter has revealed its updated shipment and digital number for two of the most recent NieR games, NieR: Automata has now shipped more than 7 million copies while the NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 remaster has shipped 1.5 million copies.
The PlatinumGames developed title originally was released originally for PC and PS4 back in 2017 and sold a couple of million copies initially, the game was later released on Xbox consoles via Game Pass and Nintendo Switch. As for Replicant, that was a much more recent title for the series as the title was released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One early last year and went on to sell one million copies back in June of the same year, according to a Gematsu report. Both games were reviewed by Bobby and you can get a little preview of both down below.
“The NieR series is a lot bigger than many thought it would ever become and five years on continues to be an important series for Square Enix. The thing here though is that if you played on either console or PC, there isn’t anything here you’re missing. The ability to take your games on the go has been the Switch’s biggest selling point for years and continues to be one of the main draws of the hybrid console,” Bobby wrote in his review.
“NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… doubles down on what made the original so good and offers more through expansion and bonus content. The story has always resonated with me in such a way that for me, Automata… the story is unlike anything in the medium. It is more approachable now and this thought-provoking journey is one you shouldn’t miss out on,” Bobby wrote in his review.
