Love to hear it! Square-Enix needs to see that this series is worth investing into! It's been great getting back to this, since I never got past 8-10 hours in the original. I do kind of miss old man Nier though, even if he was never supposed to exist lol. It would be funny if they made him DLC down the line.

If the game sells 2.5 million copies they may add him later on. :)

This makes me really happy. So much work went into upgrading this PS3 and it really shows.

Drakengard remake/remasters pls it’s time! Obviously I’d love new IP too but they are already working on a smaller game right now so Drakengard first until that smaller game is done .

Happy for Yoko and Saito . Nier is a classic and I’m happy PS gamers support good games , it deserved it the first time really

Is this the remake for the nier that was released on ps3/xbox 360? Because that nier had a different main character than this remake

curtain_swoosh50d ago (Edited 50d ago )

its a remaster of sorts.

japanese ps3 version had this guy as the main character.

the west xbox360 and ps3 version had the guy u remember.
the story is the same but Square enix america feared that the young guy wouldnt be as appealing as the older guy (that was the time when Red dead and God of war 3 came out too).

this time around, to keep it identical, they kept the young brother as the MC

the guy u remember is part of a dlc tho. so he comes back for that
