Lots of New Video Released for Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139

The Nier remake: Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 (referred to as “Neir Remake” from here on), is only a couple months away from its April 23 release date. This probably wouldn’t have been all that exciting back in 2016, but then that was before Nier Automata hit the gaming scene. That game really stuck a chord…

Nier Replicant Launches April 23

Okay, so this isn’t exactly breaking news, but I’m still feeling pretty excited about this announcement.
