NieR Replicant Vinyl Collection Brings Old and All-New Arrangements of Iconic Tunes to Collectors

NieR Replicant Vinyl Collection

In celebration of NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139‘s release and the fact that the game is, as they put it, 10+1 years old, a new collectible vinyl release will bring remixes old and all-new of the game’s most iconic songs to record for the first time.

NieR’s soundtrack remains one of the game’s most beloved features, and for good reason. With a unique sound unlike almost any other game out there that blends vocals in a made-up language with choirs and full orchestras, it’s spawned countless re-arrangement and remix albums over the years, both for the original NieR and its sequel, Automata.

Following NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139‘s release, themes for each of the main characters (including remixes) will be sold individually and in a collection on vinyl record for the first time.

 

The NieR Replicant 10+1 Years Vinyl LP Box is a 4-vinyl collection that brings together vinyls based on Nier, Kaine, Emil, and Devola and Popola into a single release. The vinyls feature art based on the characters.
