Today Square Enix released a new trailer of Story of Seas… ahem… NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
The trailer is rather peculiar, basically portraying the game as your usual farming/slice of life game in which you farm, fish, interact with animals, and so forth.
The fact that it’s the game “April Fools Trailer” should tell you more about the video’s nature.
That being said, the developer specifies that the gameplay showcased can indeed be enjoyed in the game. The trailer simply arranges it to give a misleading idea of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
The game will be released on April 22, 2021, in Japan and Asia, while the west will have to wait one day longer. NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 will come to North America and Europe on April 23, 2021, for PS4, Xbox, and PC.
If you’d like to see more, you can enjoy the original trailer of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, the announcement for the west, and the first screenshots, another recent gameplay video, another gallery, a gameplay trailer, and the latest focusing on the English cast.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s an official description from Square Enix.
