NieR Replicant ver1.22474487139 …
- Release Date: April 23, 2021
- On: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
Despite its completely inexpressible name, NieR Replicant ver1.22474487139 … can attract many fans of the excellent NieR: Automata. This prologue will actually be an improved version of the game Deny released in 2010, which has never had the success it deserves, IMHO.
The game will give you a command over a young man with a big heart who is betting on finding a cure for his seriously ill sister. In addition to improved graphics, this edition will include full dialogue dubbing, newly recorded pieces of music and new soundtracks by Japanese composer Keiichi Okabe.
To note it NieR Replicant ver1.22474487139 … will be an improved remake of the game NieR replicant released in 2013 in Japan. It is in this version that we found a main character much younger than the one presented to us in the original Western edition of Deny.
The Pokémon Snap
- Release Date: April 30, 2021
- On: Nintendo Switch
That I can not wait for this again Pokémon Snap ! In fact, the great lover of Pokémon Snap that I have to take problems with him patiently since it has been no less than 21 years that I have been waiting for another part of the series!
Using the same style as its predecessor, The Pokémon Snap will send you to the islands of the Lental region. By photographing Pokémon in their natural habitat for Professor Mirror, you will help Professor Mirror solve the mystery behind the Illumina phenomenon, making Iceland Pokémon eerily glowing.
Just like in the 1999 game, your goal will be to take the best shots, as Pokémon will naturally live in environments such as the jungle, beach and desert. Your images are ranked based on criteria such as the position of the Pokémon, the width of the shot and the actions, including rare movements that they can distribute in front of your eyes.
It may seem simple, but if he looks like his ancestor, The Pokémon Snap can prove to be extremely eye-catching!
