Announced during Tokyo Game Show, the… taxingly titled remaster also saw a gameplay demo, showing off combat and exploration in the game’s updated world. The game will be released in western territories with new cover art (although the Japanese boxart will be a reversible sleeve on phsyical editions).

Japan will receive a White Snow collector’s edition, including a display box, “unusually heavy” Grimoire pins, full voiceover scripts and more. It’s not clear if this edition will be released outside of Japan.
Nier Replicant was a Japan-only version of the original Nier, featuring a young version of the titular character. This new version will mark the first time that version of the game has been released in western markets, but significantly updates the original, expanding the story, world, and quests, and altering combat animations to make it more familiar to Nier Automata players.
