Square Enix has officially released a new trailer for the upcoming video game Nier Replicant -- full title NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… -- that showcases the extra content available in the new version of the 2010 video game that is set to release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 23rd. The new content includes a new dungeon, costumes, weapons, and even an extra episode called "Mermaid."

More specifically, the new version of Nier Replicant includes the 15 Nightmares dungeon, which was originally downloadable content for the original title, as well as a number of costumes like Kabuki and Samurai as well as YoRHa costumes and weapons from Nier: Automata. Even better? The Nier: Automata voice cast will guest in the video game, including Yui Ishikawa, Natsuki Hanae, Ayaka Suwa, Ao Yuki, Kaoru Akiyama, Kira Buckland, and Kyle McCarley. You can check out the trailer for yourself above to get an idea of what that all looks like in action -- including the newly added "Mermaid" episode.

NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is officially set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on April 23rd.
