NieR always deserved a second chance, and you could argue that the very well received NieR Automata was exactly that. The tale of 2B touched the hearts of many a player back in 2017, but for a while, it felt like the original NieR had been left behind and largely forgotten. After all, the NieR that we got here in the West — the one...
Another week, another PS Plus leak! Ahead of the official announcement that's expected later this week, six PS Plus Extra titles have been outed by the ever-reliable Dealabs. Sony's second subscription tier has been on a bit of a hot streak lately —
Worth a revisit
2021 will be remembered as a brilliant year for remakes, remasters, and enhanced PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 ports. Since a lot of these games tend to get overlooked for Game of the Year awards in favour of brand new titles, we thought it would be fitting to highlight our favourites. As selected by the Push Square editorial team,...
Worthy re-release hits PS4
NieR Replicant hits PlayStation 4 tomorrow, bringing back the first game's original experience with a fresh coat of paint and new content. Following the success of 2017's NieR: Automata, the re-release is getting a lot more attention this time around as players find out what NieR was like before 2B and 9S. Reviews are now...
It's NieRly here
NieR Replicant isn't just a barebones remaster. On top of obvious visual upgrades, its combat system has been overhauled to make it more fluid, its dialogue has been rerecorded, and its character models have been reworked. It's all coming together quite nicely, but Square Enix and developer Toylogic haven't stopped there; the...
PlayStation Underground has posted a whole 15 minutes of uncut NieR Replicant PS4 gameplay. It shows off an entire dungeon run, complete with a boss battle at the end. If you're wondering how this remaster improves the action-based combat, then this video should give you a good idea. Indeed, battles have a much smoother look to them. A...
Cover your eyes
A free DLC pack for upcoming action RPG NieR Replicant has been leaked on the Microsoft Store (as per usual!). Titled '4 YoRHa', the add-on contains four costumes and four weapons from NieR: Automata. More specifically, it includes a 2B costume for Kaine, and a 9S costume for the main character. Sadly, the store page doesn't shed any...
Release date draws NieR
The time for another NieR Replicant trailer is now, which means an overload of anime-esque storytelling and gameplay. This remake of the PlayStation 3 original is just under two months away from release now, giving you just enough time to complete a couple more playthroughs of NieR: Automata before you learn of the events t
It's getting NieRer
Upcoming remaster NieR Replicant just got nine uncut minutes of 'Barren Temple' gameplay, which showcases some character dialogue, exploration, and combat. The latter has been reworked quite extensively for this re-release, by the way, and it's looking especially sharp in the video. NieR Replicant is still set to launch for PS4...

The game is a remaster of the original PS3 NieR, a prequel to the highly regarded NieR: Automata. You can watch the trailer above. While it's only a minute long, it gives us a good idea of how the remaster is shaping up. In terms of...
Joins growing list
Here's one more game to add to the growing list of titles scheduled for reveals at The Game Awards 2020 this Thursday. Square Enix's NieR Replicant remake will be in attendance during Geoff Keighley's pre-show to debut a "brand new look" at the game. We assume this will take the shape of some sort of gameplay trailer ahead of its...
