As with the other games in the Nier and Drakengard series, Nier Replicant features multiple endings. They’re critical to understanding Nier Replicant, since these endings provide a more complete picture of its story and offer critical narrative context. While it’s necessary to replay chunks of the game in order to see all the endings, you don’t have to play through the entire game again. However, there are some specific requirements you’ll need to be aware of.
I am going to avoid as many spoilers as possible in this guide, despite this being about the endings–it’s actually quite easy to explain how to get them without giving the pertinent story details away. After all, I want you all to feel and experience these emotional conclusions for yourself, too. (It’s kinda why I’m doing this for y’all.)
If you want to know how the game is overall, be sure to check out my full review of Nier Replicant, or check out our comparison video of the original Nier versus this new version. And especially for getting all the endings, be sure to have our guide for obtaining all the weapons in Nier Replicant on-hand (they are required for the additional endings).
