Square Enix is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Nier with the release of a remastered version for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139, as it will be called, will launch on PlayStation 4, PC via Steam, and Xbox One.

Nier Replicant was originally only released in Japan for PS3. Over in the West, gamers got a version called Nier Gestalt – which also came to Japan on Xbox 360. The games differed in their protagonist: an older man in Gestalt’s case, and a younger man in Replicant’s.

The remastered release will feature new voice work, re-recorded music and new tracks from composer Keiicher Okabe, as well as new characters and possibly new endings.

“NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, an upgraded version of the original, is now in development for PS4, Xbox One and Steam!” the developer said via the official Nier Twitter account. “Enter an apocalyptic world as you play as a brother on a quest to cure his sister of a deadly disease in this unique action RPG.”

In addition to the Nier Replicant remaster, Square Enix has also revealed it will be bringing Nier Reincarnation to iOS and Android devices.
