The Nier series might soon be receiving a new addition or a remake, as Square Enix has filed a trademark for Nier in Japan.
Really hope this turns out to be true and for all platforms. *blessrng*
A remake would be pretty cool. The core gameplay of Nier was bad and could really use a update.
the music was awesome though, in some ways I liked it better than nier2. if I could take the setting and music of nier1 and put the graphics and gameplay of nier 2 that would be awesome. Char design was top notch in both, just hope it doesn't get SJWed.
I was hoping for a Drakengard remake.
would love to see that!
Thst would be good, game needed a bigger budget
Makes sense. Gives the new Automata fanbase a chance to dance with the OG.
It's worth revisiting for the story alone, if they plan to remake it then the gameplay and visuals definitely need some work.
Trademarks get renewed on a normal basis since they are timed. Can we stop using them for speculating remakes and sequels since the two things have nothing to do with each other?
Yes! Automata is absolutely fantastic but I personally liked this one more. Also I still have fond memories of playing this before it really hit mainstream buying it at launch for $20 and being made fun of by coworkers for playing "the crappy $20 game". Boy did I not let them live that down when they got on the hype train for Automata then went back and played this.
As long as they make sure the main character isn't so fugly as the original American version because ugh.
he wasn't that bad, much more relatable than your average tailored mannequin characters.
He was pretty hideous. Just needs a good update.
Out of ideas or lazy. That's what it comes to mind when hearing the word of Remake.
That would be really cool, I never played the first Nier. I think an overhaul or tuning of the combat with Platinum Games expertise would benefit it greatly.
I hope they'll port over Drakengard 3 as well while they're at it. It's on sale right now and I kinda want to buy it but not without the story dlc which never goes on sale for some reason and cost freaking 30 euro... A full remake of that game would be amazing but I don't expect that to ever happen. A HD port would already feel like a miracle.
Remake remake remake....
