Action role-play video game
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is an action role-playing video game that follows the protagonist, sworn to protect Yonah, his sick sister. The story setting is in the same world as the Drakengard series and precedes the well-known NieR: Automata.
This game version is a remaster of the original NieR Replicant and is an improved version of what you've already experienced. You'll be drawn into the story plot with your favorite characters, better graphics, and smoother animations. NieR Replicant ver.1.22 is available on Windows, Playstation, and Xbox.
Characters and the world
NieR has always been strong with its characters and worldbuilding. The protagonist's personal quest is the main driving force for the player. Even more so than saving the world or acting for the greater good.
While the side quests are a bit boring, the main storyline is highly captivating. You might get to points where the game can seem a bit of a drag, but the ending will award you with the highest satisfaction if you push through them.
Development and critical acclaim
Nier Replicant ver.1.22 was first announced in March 2020 and launched in April 2021. Upon release, the game took the gaming community on a renewed journey into the NieR's improved world. Most review websites and youtube channels didn't agree on the final verdict of the game. The reworked soundtrack is hauntingly beautiful, and the voice of the actors helped bring all characters to life.
As it's a spin-off of the Drakengard series, you might want to start from the main story. However, this game can also be enjoyed as a standalone adventure as Replicant ver.1.22 is a sleek introduction to the world and game mechanics.
