The Nier Replicant wiki last edited by Jagged85 on 02/18/13 10:25AM View full history


Nier Replicant is an alternate version of Nier that was released in Japan as a PS3 exclusive alongside the primary game, entitled Nier Gestalt in Japan. The main difference between Nier Replicant and Gestalt is the age of the main character and his relationship to the character Yonah. In Gestalt, Nier is an older man who tries to save his daughter Yonah from a mysterious illness. In Replicant, Nier appears signficantly younger, and Yonah is his younger sister.

Beyond these key differences, Nier Replicant is almost identical to Gestalt in both story and gameplay. Replicant was not released for international audiences and at this point remains exclusive to Japan. However, downloadable content released for Gestalt features gameplay set in Nier's youth that uses his younger character design from Replicant.
