Earlier today, Square Enix and PlatinumGames announced Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139, an upgraded version of the remake of the original Nier title. Franchise fans have been waiting for a new game in the series since 2017's critically-acclaimed Nier: Automata, so the news has been quite well-received. At this time, the game has not been given an official release date by Square Enix, and further details remain fairly slim, but that hasn't stopped fans from celebrating the announcement. With all the bad news currently happening in the world, it's further proof of just how much video games can help bring people together!

Some people didn't even know there was a Nier game before Automata!
NieR RepliCant looks very interesting!
I have played a bit of Automata, but I never played the original NieR.
No lie, until I saw footage of it on YouTube, and Twitter, I have never seen or heard of the original NieR before Automata!— Michael Reid (@Spectrumbots42) March 29, 2020
A lot of fans want to know the status of Nier Gestalt, as well.
A NieR Replicant remaster is really exciting. I hope they do something with Gestalt, too.— Scott House スコット・ハウス (@sehouse) March 29, 2020
