Square Enix have shared in-game screenshots and concept art of the upcoming NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… and NieR Re[in]carnation.
While information on both titles have been scarce after their initial announcements, the official Japanese Twitter accounts for the games have been updating with screenshots and concept art [1, 2, 3]. The screenshots are also set to appear in a future edition of Weekly Famitsu in Japan.
Firstly, the NieR Replicant screenshots and concept art. The concept art was produced by Kazuma Koda, who was also an environmental concept artist for the original game.
He was also an environment designer on Bayonetta 2, an environment concept artist on NieR: Automata, artwork on the Pokémon: Let’s Go games, and a concept artist for Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and Code Vein (via IMDB).
In case you missed it, NieR Replicant‘s developers were recently interviewed by Famitsu. Therein, they revealed they felt the game was more than a remaster, along with other information.
NieR Re[in]carnation does not have too much new information, but we do see in-game screenshots of areas outside of the desert ruins. According the comments of the tweet these images were posted to, the ghost-like creature is called Mama. While some have been impressed with the game’s graphics, others are already intrigued in the nature of Mama.
We will keep you informed as we learn more.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is coming soon to Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
