Square Enix has confirmed it is bringing an “upgraded” version of Nier Replicant to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The remake of the decade-old action RPG was announced earlier today on a livestream celebrating the game’s tenth anniversary. Whilst Platinum Games isn’t involved in the upgrade – that’s being led by Toylogic – Takahisa Taura, who worked as the senior game designer on Nier: Automata, is reportedly involved (thanks, Siliconera).
“NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, an upgraded version of the original, is now in development for PS4, Xbox One and Steam!” the developer said via the official Nier Twitter account. “Enter an apocalyptic world as you play as a brother on a quest to cure his sister of a deadly disease in this unique action RPG.”
