NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… Will Contain an Extra Episode on Release

It Will Also Feature Extra Dungeons and NieR: Automata Costumes

The story of NieR is one of tragedy, mistakes born of tunnel vision and ignorance, and how terribly easy it is to destroy those we love while trying to help them. That said, these games can also be incredibly fun, and we’re happy to announce that the upcoming remaster of NieR Replicant is adding a ton of awesome stuff to go with your beautiful, despair-inducing main plot. NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… will add an extra episode, Mermaid, some extra crossover dungeons from 15 Nightmares (otherwise known as The World of Recycled Vessel), and some stunning NieR: Automata costumes to the base game. If you’re not already hyped, check out this gorgeous trailer dedicated to showing off the extra content.

At launch, the game will feature:

  • 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.
  • Extra Dungeons from “15 Nightmares” – Previously released as downloadable content for the original release in Japan and similar to “The World of Recycled Vessel” content in the West, fans will be able to undertake a series of challenging dungeons as the “15 Nightmares” protagonist in the world of recycled vessel. Playing through the dungeons will unlock a variety of weapons, as well as extra costumes, “Kabuki” and “Samurai.” You will also be able to change the appearance of enemy bullets to Emil’s face through the option menu after obtaining either of the costumes.
  • Soundtrack from NieR:Automata – Players will unlock an option to switch to select background music tracks from the critically acclaimed NieR:Automata after completing the first playthrough.
  • Guest Cast from NieR:Automata – The English and Japanese voice actors of 2B and 9S will be featured in the game.

We’re definitely interested in the new content. Especially the costumes.
