Yosuke Saito, producer of the NieR franchise has used your Twitter account to confirm that NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 has been ready for quite some time. Also, it confirmed free DLC for the game. “We just approved the DLC (which will be free, by the way, and then we can rest,” he said.
So this internal team has been very dedicated to this game for quite a while. The fact that you comment that it is time to rest seems to indicate that the game will not have a season pass, expansion, or anything like that. It is a title that is planned to be released in full and that, like its predecessors, will have online components that come together with the story.
Recall that this NieR is a remaking / remaster of the first, today it is not very clear how it will change, but it seems a clear attempt to revive a saga that had gone unnoticed until NieR: Automata sold like hot cakes. This first installment received mixed reviews at the time on PS3 10 years ago and was even released in different versions for Japan and the West.
Oh, I forgot.
It was four years ago …
“Nier Replicant v1.22 has been mastered! (Long ago)”, so with the approval of DLC (how free this time!), It’s finally a paragraph.
Please look forward to the announcement of the contents of the DLC and the release date.
We are accepting reservations! !! Please buy it!

On our side we received a protagonist with more than 40 years who needed to get a cure to a disease for his daughter, while in Japan the protagonist was much younger and did not have to save his daughter, but his sister. This new version makes the protagonist a young man for all versions, so in the West we will try a new experience.
Now, the DLC mentioned may be an alternative campaign with the old protagonist who had to save his daughter. At least that is what is speculated since the collector’s edition for PS4 revealed more than 10 avatars for PlayStation Network including portraits of characters that were not seen.
NieR: Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 will be released on April 23 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
