With Nier: Automata raising the franchise’s profile immensely, it only makes sense that its predecessor would gain a second life. Square Enix is turning this wish into a reality with the impending release of Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139…, a remaster of the original Nier that started it all.

Despite their dominating popularity in respective media industries, The Walking Dead and survival games haven’t yet converged into one, all-together satisfying product.
