Updated NieR Replicant

The updated NieR Replicant game, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… (formerly exclusive to the Japanese markets) has shifted closer to its target date for the rest of the world. According to a social media post from the game’s director, Yosuke Saito, the updated NieR Replicant has officially gone gold.

“Going gold” in the gaming industry, for those unfamiliar with the term, essentially means the game has been deemed finished by the developers and is ready for the production process. In addition to the updated NieR Replicant game featuring improved visuals and enhanced performance and other assorted improvements, Saito confirmed that free DLC content will also be made available in the future.

NieR: Automata, the sequel to NieR Replicant (which people have been negatively reviewing on Steam lately on account of an improved version being released for the Xbox Game Pass for PC), has seen impressive sales numbers, with the game passing the 5 million copies sold milestone back in December.

The updated NieR Replicant game is set for release on April 23rd for the PC via Steam, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
