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. 


  • I’m a long way from being Woke/PC/whatever, but the first thing that came to mind was “Why doesn’t she have any pants on?”.

  • Seeing that makes me kinda glad I played the english version with the dad, it’s more interesting and he doesn’t wear a fishing net for underwear with no pants so there’s that. Automata’s success definitely took them by surprise, this is surely meant to capitalise on the interest which resulted and I can’t complain lol it was a good game.
