NieR Replicant: a “sad and powerful” boss awaits you

Speaking with PCGamesN, the producer Yosuke Saito reported the following: “There will be some extra sections of the story that we weren’t able to fit into the original. In NieR Replicant there will also be a new one boss incredibly sad and powerful waiting for you somewhere. I hope you will like it. Interestingly, there will also be “something” involving a character from the original game and some references to NieR: Automata:

There are a ton of new additions in there. There’s a new story, an extra link to Automata and something for fans of “Dad Nier” too, so I think people who played the original version ten years ago will be more than satisfied too.

“Dad Nier” obviously is a reference to the protagonist of NieR: Gestalt (the western version of the game). Saito also commends Takahisa Taura by PlatinumGames for his work on the combat system in the remaster. Taura helped “review and adapt all battle animations”. Saito also added:

I feel that the battles in Automata have all been so popular thanks to the contribution of Platinum Games. That experience has undoubtedly been carried over to Replicant. It was also of great help that Mr. Taura and the Automata team supervised and optimized the system.
