Nier Replicant

NieR Replicant Gets a New Gameplay Trailer

Square Enix revealed new(old?) gameplay of the upcoming remaster NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139, the version which focuses on brother Nier rather than papa Nier.

The remaster was rebuilt for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles and the new gameplay takes us to The Barren Temple area within the game. This area is found within the desert kingdom of Façade and sees the protagonist visit the temple with Kainé and magical tome Grimoire Weiss.

In the nearly ten-minute video, the team is granted access to The Barren Temple. In the video, we see how the gameplay varies from NieR: Automata and how the protagonist handles himself in the battle against the odds within The Barren Temple, which features a boss battle against a swarm of mysterious, sentient cubes.

I haven’t touched the first game in almost a decade. I was stoked when NieR launched years ago and made sure I experienced everything the game had to offer.

Square Enix also revealed three tracks you’ll hear in NieR Replicant, the first is Snow in Summer:

The second song is Kainé:

The final video includes a sampling of the music found within the game:

NieR Replicant will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on April 23, 2021.
