NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... is the remake of Nier Replicant.
Nier is known as Nier Gestalt when it released in Japan. Since they only localized this version to the west, they removed the Gestalt from the title. Both originally played similarly except Replicant is the younger brother and Gestalt is the father and they thought the father was more appropriate for the west.

Drakengard 3 falls early in the timeline.
Drakengard 3 > Drakengard 1 > Nier (Replicant, Replicant ver.1.22474487139...,Gestalt) > Nier Automata

This is really for collectors more than gamers. If a gamer wants either games, they should be listed on PSN store and likely been on sale multiple times for less (honestly didnt keep track but i know nier have been on sale a lot). If you want physical copies of them however, its probably tough to find.

Edit did a quick search after my post, it looks like the original nier is not listed on PSN store (at least the online/web store).

I remember nobody wanted Drakkengard 3 when it was everywhere for 9.99 a few years ago. Suddenly it's a deal at 29.99?

Also, you are better off with the upgraded/remastered version of Nier.

No? I thought replicant was some Japan release that was being brought to NA… is it the same game as Nier?

Sorry, I thought you were being facetious. it's the same game - it has a different protagonist. Minor differences from Gestalt.

I suppose if you really want to play as the father/older guy then you'd want to play Gestalt (or this version) but otherwise the new game is superior.

It's complicated.

In the west, OG PS3/XBox 360 release is technically Neir Gestalt which starred Neir as the father to Yonah. In Japan, there's only the PS3 version which was technically named Neir Replicant which starred Neir as the brother to Yonah.

Both games were released as Neir however, and other than the protag all the content of the games are pretty much exactly the same.

The recent remake was based on the Replicant version, so it's the first time we can play as brother Neir in the west, so it's new in only that sense. Otherwise it's just a remake of Neir as we know it.

If it helps, Neir Replicant has always been the official canonical version. Neir Gestalt was made because for some reason Squareenix thought the west like play as a older burly man instead of a bishonen teenager.
There's a sucker born every minute.

Is Square reprinting these games? They are known to reprint old PS1 games.

The value will tank if these are reprints.

Edit: Looks like there is a huge reprint run. First 2 listings on eBay shows 500+ / 600+ sold for Nier and 700+ / 500+ for Drakengard.

Don't bother collecting disc based Square games.

Speak for yourself, I would have murdered people for Drakkengard 3 for $10. It was sold out in my city though.

It's funny that Wario64 covered this restock.
