SQUARE ENIX recently unveiled a plethora of extra content for NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, the modern re-telling of the cult classic NieR Replicant that came out in 2010.
The updated version of the game will not only become more accessible for modern audiences with fully remastered visuals, a re-recorded soundtrack, and all-new voice dialogue, but will also include brand-new story content, extra dungeons, and costumes, including multiple NieR:Automata themed costumes & weapons, the NieR:Automata playable soundtrack, and more.
Further details on the extra content that will be included for the game at launch is below:
- Extra Episode – Players can enjoy a new scenario and exhilarating boss battle by playing through the game, in an all new “Mermaid” episode featuring a wrecked ship and a little girl.
