NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139...
A remaster of NieR Replicant, the Japanese PlayStation 3 exclusive version of the first NieR game.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 invites players into a dark, apocalyptic world as they join a brother’s captivating quest to cure his sister of a deadly disease - a quest which will in turn make them question everything."
It was originally released in 2010 alongside the Xbox 360 version, known as NieR Gestalt, that was later released internationally on both systems as NieR.
The versions are mostly the same with some music changes, the main distinction being the story changes around the protagonist being an older brother in Replicant or a father in Gestalt.

A near immaculate remake. Nothing really to complain about here. The rerecorded dialogue somehow matches (and in some cases, beats) the old, the combat system is both familiar and different in the best ways, the visuals are great, the rerecorded music feels more tailored to the gameplay, the new bits are fun without feeling intrusive to the existing game... An excellent game somehow made even better.
Small grievances with this remake aside, this is the definitive version of the game in my eyes. The new combat makes the whole experience less of a chore, and the additional ending, while not strictly necessary, was a treat to experience.
My only wish would be a few more options; the ability to switch to the OG renditions of the soundtrack would've been nice (though I don't fear any of the new arrangements are as bad as others think), and Dad Nier would've been a nice addition as well. Neither are big flaws to me, and I'd still recommend this version to both new and old fans alike.
Hard to find the words for this one. Aggressively mediocre gameplay tied up with one of the most emotionally resonant stories I've ever seen in a video game. Characters so beautifully constructed that I cred several times while grinding out side quests so bad they feel like a parody. You really just gotta give this one a shot.
