Well because I appear to have sold my soul to Square Enix I had already pre-ordered the remake of Nier Replicant and it was finally released last week. I’ve always wanted to play this version as it’s a prequel to Nier Automata but it was only available on PS3 and who even has a PS3 anymore? Fortunately Automata’s popularity clearly inspired Yoko Taro to make this remake a reality and I’m glad I finally got a chance to play this title. As usual, big fat spoilers after the jump so if you plan to play the game please wait until after you finish before reading the review!
So in hopes of some missing otome game action from the last game, I decided to play the (extremely short) FD. Unlike most FDs I’ve ever played, this one doesn’t take place AFTER the previous game – it takes place in BETWEEN chapters 6-8 of the last game during the summer. They knew they dun goof’ed on the bullshit ending in the last game so there was no real way to do an after story FD…so yea time to shove the missing otome events right!? And so for this reason everyone including the substances is all horned up for Akira and fights over her the entire time. 😂
Our superwoman genius Akira graduated from college at a young age and at the age of 17 becomes a teacher/commander for the 6th
Evangelion LAG unit of Substance x Human robo fighters. But also everything is like a giant musical pun because all the robos aka substances, are named after guitar brands (Gibson, Les Paul, Epiphone etc) and all the guys in this unit are part of a rock band called Odd I’s (a pun on the fact that they have odd colored eyes when they gattai with their robots). 😂 They fight against the evil “red” planet but things start to get difficult when it’s revealed that the substances are all originally from that red planet and have been experimented on/controlled by humans. Aka it’s basically the plot of Evangelion 😂😂.
This is the KLAP fandisk but apparently Otomate couldn’t afford to get Kawahito Yasutake to draw the CGs so most of them look like they’re done by Otomate inhouse staff. 😂 Despite the CG derp the FD was still short & sweet and worth the play if you enjoyed the previous game.
