NieR Replicant won't be hitting the shelves anytime soon, but it hasn't stopped Square Enix from releasing a fresh trailer for the upcoming title, shining a new light on its core cast, mighty weapons and magical attacks.
During this year's The Game Awards, Square Enix officially confirmed that NieR Replicant will be arriving on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) on April 23, 2021. If you decide to pre-order the game before its launch day, you will also receive plenty of exclusive bonuses, including a wallpaper collection and mini-soundtrack.
When it comes to the long-awaited mobile entry in the NieR series — titled NieR Re[in]carnation — it will no longer be making its debut this year as originally planned. According to Square Enix, the Yoko Taro–directed extravaganza will now be coming to iOS and Android early next year (it doesn't have a set release date yet).
That's right, fans will get the unique chance to play 2 new (well, that's a bit of a stretch) NieR games in 2021.
Although PlatinumGames — the team responsible for the beloved NieR: Automata — isn't working on either title (as NieR Replicant and NieR Re[in]carnation are being developed by Toylogic and Applibot, respectively) the good news is that both Taro and Producer Yosuke Saito are helping the studios create their NieR games.
