If you’re a fan of Nier’s hauntingly beautiful music, then we’ve got good news for you. Nier Replicant ver 1.22474487139 and Nier Reincarnation are both getting official soundtracks released next month.
We’ve known about Nier Replicant’s soundtrack for a while now. Reimagined by composer Keiichi Okabe and including an entire disc full of guest musicians, Nier Replicant will have a three-CD soundtrack with four entirely new, never-before-heard songs. It’ll also have an artistic cover and a booklet containing commentary from Okabe as well as producer Yosuke Saito, director Saki Ito, and creative director Yoko Taro.
Reincarnation will have just a single CD which will include both in-game BGM and remixes. Both soundtracks will be released in Japan on April 21.
In North America, we’re so far only getting the Nier Replicant soundtrack. You can pre-order it on Square Enix’s North American store for $35.99. Nothing is coming up for Nier Reincarnation, which likely has to do with the game’s Japan-only release.
If you’d like a preview of Nier Replicant’s soundtrack, Square released a few songs two weeks ago that are lovely background music for the start of your workweek. And if you’d like to see what the remade game will look like, Square even released the opening cinematic and quite a bit of gameplay footage too.
The English voice cast just got released, and it looks like Nier Replicant will see reprisals from Liam O’Brien, Laura Bailey, while newcomers Ray Chase and Zach Aguilar will play older and younger versions of Nier.
Meanwhile, Nier: Automata has crossed another sales milestone after hitting 5.5 million units sold last week. The 2017 action RPG was an instant hit in large part to the series’ first-time release on PC via Steam. The game won best soundtrack and best narrative at the 2017 Game Awards, which also helped to launch its popularity.

Actually a collective of 6 hamsters piloting a human-shaped robot, Sean hails from Toronto, Canada. Passionate about gaming from a young age, those hamsters would probably have taken over the world by now if they didn’t vastly prefer playing and writing about video games instead.
The hamsters are so far into their long-con that they’ve managed to acquire a bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo and used that to convince the fine editors at TheGamer that they can write “gud werds,” when in reality they just have a very sophisticated spellchecker program installed in the robot’s central processing unit.
