NieR: Replicant ver.1.22474487139 isn’t too far off now, releasing next week for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. For fans of the original, this is a long time coming especially after the success of NieR: Automata. While the remaster will offer improved visuals and combat, it will also include content that the development team couldn’t fit into the original.

Speaking to PCGamesN, producer Yosuke Saito said that, “There are some extra story sections that we were unable to put into the original. There is also a heartrendingly sad but unbelievably powerful new boss lying in wait for you somewhere. Please enjoy it all.” Interestingly, there will also be “something” involving a character from the original game and some connections to NieR: Automata.

“There are loads of extra bits in there. There’s a new story, an extra link to Automata, and something for fans of ‘Dad Nier’ too, so I think that people who played the original version ten years ago will be more than satisfied as well,” says Saito. ‘Dad Nier‘, of course, refers to the protagonist of NieR: Gestalt (the Western version of the game) who acted as Yonah’s father.

Saito also praises PlatinumGames’ Takahisa Taura for his work on the combat in the remaster. Taura helped in “looking over and adjusting all of the battle animations.” Saito added that, “I feel that the battles in Automata being so highly regarded was all down to Platinum Games’ contribution. That experience has undoubtedly been carried over into Replicant. It was a massive help having Mr. Taura and the Automata team overseeing and tweaking the system, too.”

NieR: Replicant ver.1.22474487139… releases on April 23rd worldwide. It went gold “a while back” and will seemingly feature DLC costumes based on characters from NieR: Automata. Stay tuned for more details on the title in the coming weeks.
