While Nier: Automata highlighted the discovery of humanity in a world that almost forgotten it, Nier Replicant is about the struggle and burden to preserve the little bit of humanity the world has left. Being a Nier game, there is a consistent melancholy that follows the characters of Nier Replicant.

Players get to see how tragic life can be, but if all the game’s conclusions are completed, it ultimately reveals the poetic beauty of life, hard though it may be. Nier Replicant Stays true to much of the original from the 2010 release, at least as far as the plot is concerned. The story, characters, scenarios, and structure have all been preserved. However, the remaster includes gameplay changes, visual improvements, and additional story content that expands on the original story.

Despite the broken world around them, players are treated to the warmth of companionship and friendship that juxtaposes the despair of the game’s universe. Reality provides its challenges for the heroes, but coming to grips with identities judged and condemned by others is tackled as well. The same story that was praised for its deep and gripping narrative in 2010 is still present, but combat has been revamped to something more similar to Nier: Automata, which was the introduction to the overall series for a great many players. The open-world element of the game has not been changed.

The game had some problems with delivery on time for those who pre-ordered, but that issue has since been rectified for most players.
