During the ongoing digital Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix made a lot of its fans happy. They did this by announcing NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, and confirming their intentions to release it in early 2021.
A modern retelling of 2010’s (Japan only) NieR Replicant, ver.1.22474487139… is a modernized retelling of that same story.
