To mark the game’s tenth anniversary, a Nier Replicant remaster was announced for the PS4, Xbox One, and Steam. Let’s see how the game, so far, stacks up against the PlayStation 3 original.


While there could be slight differences in the final retail version, the comparison shows that the remaster has undergone a good polish graphics-wise.

This is obvious, of course, but seeing what exactly was changed is fascinating. Plus, the remaster seems closer visually to Nier: Automata.

The remaster, titled Nier Replicant ver.1.22474487139..., does have a host of other changes, including fully voiced dialogue, a rearranged musical score, and new story elements, among other additions.

Nier Replicant ver.1.22474487139... will be released this April.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.


I’ll most likely grab this but am hoping they drop a Papa Nier skin/dlc at some point before I get the chance. Having played Gestalt as that’s the version we got in the west, I have a bit of an attachment to old Nier.
