The confusingly named remake has been a huge success when you consider how niche the original NieR Replicant and Gestalt were. A solid modern release and the popularity of its sequel, Nier: Automata, have both helped this classic Yoko Taro story reach a larger audience than ever before.
Speaking of Nier: Automata, the game also managed to reach another sales milestone. Physical shipments and digital sales have now reached six million, putting total shipments for both games at over seven million — not bad for games that follow on from a joke ending.
