The popular action role-playing game (RPG) franchise "NieR" has recently revealed its next installment called "NieR Replicant," which would succeed the popular "NieR: Automata" title released last 2017.
The game's first-look trailer has also featured several of its lead English voice actors, who would bring the popular characters to life and the game.
The game was initially developed by PlatinumGames and published by Square Enix, and the team continues the game's successful franchise in a release that is four years later than its initial launch date. The game is coming soon to the platform with massive hype surrounding it, along with the voices of its characters which puts its actors side-by-side for a read.
Several of these actors are best known for their previous works in titles such as the "Fire Emblem" series, a popular Nintendo-based game franchise that takes inspiration from manga and anime looks. "Nier," for its part, is famous in massive gaming consoles including PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
