Combat continues to impress in the upcoming remaster.
With its release not too far off, Toylogic’s NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… has received some new gameplay footage. It ventures to the Barren Temple of Facade as Nier, Kaine and Grimoire Weiss investigate. Along with battling Shades, the group also encounters strange cubs and ultimately, a boss. Check it out below.
The combat will look pretty familiar to NieR: Automata players, though NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… employs parries and counters to effect as well. It’s an interesting hack and slash combat style which looks to be more responsive in the remaster. Don’t worry though – the bullet hell-style sequences still return in select boss fights.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… releases on April 23rd worldwide. It will be available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. This won’t be the end of NieR though – creator Yoko Taro has confirmed that two new projects are in development and one could be a true NieR sequel. The conclusion to the NieR: Automata collaboration in Final Fantasy 14: Shadowbringers will also come to a close when its next update hits in April.
