Nier Replicant's extra content revealed in the new trailer

Square Enix appears to be planning to honor the popular successor with Extra Content and DLC. In advance of the game's April 23, 2021 update, details about the NieR Replicant DLC were unveiled in a Livestream on April 19, 2021. We see additional dungeons, extra outfits, the Nier: Automata guest cast and a peek at an extra episode named Mermaid in the video below.

While Nier Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is ostensibly a reboot of the cult 2010 JRPG, Western fans would be perplexed. In Japan, there were basically two iterations of Nier: Gestalt, who made it to the West, featured an older, burlier Nier with a daughter called Yonah. The Japanese version, Replicant, featured a younger and more sprightly Nier, as well as a sister called Yonah.

The first pack teased was "15 Nightmares," which included difficult dungeons as well as character packs for "Samurai" and "Kabuki." 15 Nightmares allows you to play the older version of Nier that was released for NieR Gestalt (also known as "Papa Nier"). The “4 YoRHa” box, a NieR Automata crossover DLC for NieR Replicant, will be available for free at sale. It includes some NieR Automata costumes and weapons, such as the Virtuous Treaty sword and clothes that make Kaine look like 2B or A2. Another mask resembles 9S and a YoRHa android who isn't wearing socks. Outside of the main plot, the music DLC will enable players to replace the game's background music with NieR Automata's.

Voice appearances from NieR Automata cast members will be included in the NieR Replicant extra material. Yui Ishikawa (2B), Natsuki Hanae (9S), Ayaka Suwa (A2), Aoi Yuki (Pascal), and Kaoru Akiyama are among the cast members seen (Pod 153). Even voice actors Kira Buckland and Kyle McCarley (who portrayed 2B and 9S, respectively, in English) are included. They haven't said who they'll be in NieR Replicant.

The Extra Episode "Mermaid," a brand-new piece of NieR Replicant DLC, was also announced. There happens to be a shipwreck involved, as well as a little girl named Louise. The group fought a giant, tentacled beast in a boss battle from the episode, which was also seen.
