The remake of the Playstation 3 title Nier Replicant managed to reach one million copies sold
Yoko Taro's games are generally not commercial hits. This was said by the director himself, shortly before the launch of the remake of Nier Replicant; however this time he was wrong as the game managed to sell a million copies. For such a niche title this is a formidable result. Despite the enormous success of Nier Automata Taro did not expect a good result from this remake, as he considered Automata a unique event also helped by the design of 2B.
#NieR: Automata and #NieRReplicant ver. 1.22474487139 ... have shipped / digitally sold over 6 million and 1 million units respectively!

Although the director of the two titles is not wrong, Automata reached a million copies in a single month while Replicant used 3, Nier continues to enjoy well-deserved success. The brand now has two titles with excellent sales, as it has been confirmed that Nier Automata is currently at 6 million copies distributed, including digital. With the spin-off Nier Reincarnation upon us, we can hope for an interesting future for the works of Yoko Taro and his crazy way of seeing video games!
