Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139
The Game Awards pre-show gave us a look at gameplay for Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 (yes, that’s the actual title). The game is the western release of a Japanese version of the 2010’s Nier that never came stateside, and has similar content but different characters and story beats.
The clip shows off some hack n’ slash combat reminiscent of Nier: Automata. Fast-paced melee attacks are combined with flash bullet hell sequences and, of course, tons of exploding metal.
Nier: Replicant launches April 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can pre-order the game now. If you need some convincing, check out this opinion piece on why you should give the game a shot.
