The protagonist is a kind young man living in a remote village. In order to save his sister Yonah, who fell terminally ill to the Black Scrawl, he sets out with Grimoire Weiss, a strange talking tome, to search for the “Sealed verses.”
Experience the NieR Replicant story for the first time in the west through the eyes of the protagonist as a brother.
Nier Replicant was also recently rated by ESRB who have given it a Mature rating. This rating appears to be in line with the original game so hopefully, there is no cut content in the remake aside from the lack of the Japanese version of Nier that offered slightly different storyline.
