NieR Replicant Has Gone Gold, Releases Later This Month
NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 has officially gone gold! For those unfamiliar with the term, a game that has ‘gone gold’ is essentially ready to ship out on its designated release date, so, it won’t be held up by any delays. It’s truly an exciting time to be a fan of the NieR series, as the new game is an essence an upgraded version of the original NieR Replicant game that released in Japan in April 2010.
Acting as a prequel of sorts to the award-winning NieR: Automata, the upgraded version of NieR Replicant focuses on a brother’s search for a cure for his sister, notably different from the Western version where a father goes off to save his daughter. The story beats will of course be a bit different as a result, so there’s something to look forward to those that have played the Western release of the 2010 version of the game and those that are checking out the title following positive experiences with Automata.
