Check out some of the highlights from the famitsu article down below:

  • NieR Repilcant ver.1.22474487139… isn’t supposed to be a remaster but more like a new upgraded version of the game. Nonetheless, the cutscenes’ screenplay and camerawork didn’t change, akin to what a simple remaster would do.
  • The main appeal of the game will be its additional parts, and this is what the development team is spending the most effort on.
  • The gameplay will be slightly more action-like so it’s more enjoyable for those who like NieR Automata.
  • Takahisa Taura is supervising the action gameplay part. In the interview, he explains he likes the original NieR Replicant the way it is and personally doesn’t want to change it much. But Yoko Taro, Yosuke Saito and Toylogic wish to change it.
  • The music of the game was all rerecorded, and the songs, chorus, etc are of higher quality. Longer versions of certain songs were added. The new additional parts will have brand new music, and a lot of voiced lines, probably with the previously mentioned characters voiced by Yui Ishikawa and Natsuki Hanae.

Titled as NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139, the new updated version of the game is slated to release for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
