NieR Replicant is the most anticipated game of April 2021

After a period of relative calm, April 2021 returns to present a catalog of games in which we can glimpse more than one hit, which is also reflected in the close fight that has been unleashed regarding the election of the most anticipated game of the month. given the different possibilities proposed. Among these, however, both the editorial staff and the readers have finally focused on a single title, which promises to be talked about for a long time, given what happened with the predecessor in the series (even if technically it would be its sequel): NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139.

NieR Replicant is the right relaunch operation for a game that deserves more attention

We are always within a 2021 characterized by postponements, postponements and upheavals various organizations, but in a year like this this April seems to have been configured as a sort of oasis, where various games of great interest have found shelter for this first half of the year. Although there are no classic absolute blockbusters, destined to capture global attention, there are titles that are particularly anticipated for several reasons, and that will probably continue to remain the center of attention for a good period of time: in particular there we refer to the three games that emerged as the most voted on both polls, namely NieR Replicant, Outriders and Returnal. The first is in balance between the cult and the success ensured by the notoriety finally achieved by the series, the second is proposed as a long-term online multiplayer title and the third is a PS5 exclusive, so for several reasons each of these is really very interesting.

The most awaited by the editorial staff

At the end of a highly fought vote, the most anticipated game of April 2021 for the editors of turned out to be NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139. The crazy title immediately gets us into the right spirit of the particular series directed by Yoko Taro, which is finally receiving the attention she would have deserved for a long time. The game was born from the desire to re-propose to the public a title that has remained unknown to most, despite having emerged as a real cult even years after its original release. With the great success of NieR: Automata, Square Enix has seen fit to recover that imperfect but particularly bright gem that was the previous NieR, taking advantage of the opportunity to modify and improve it, thus proposing a sort of conceptual reworking of the original, faithful in a good part as regards the story but with several alterations not only technical, which makes it even more interesting.

Returnal promises great things, also thanks to its particular sci-fi and horror setting

At a short distance, in second position was Returnal: a little because of the desire for exclusive next gen that characterizes this first period of PS5 and Xbox Series X rather poor in titles dedicated only to new platforms, the shooter Housemarque is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated games of this first half of 2021. In large part, however, the desire for Returnal derives from the quality of the previous productions from par te of the same team and the undoubted interest that generates its particular roguelike shooter structure and the setting halfway between science fiction and psychological horror. On the third step of the podium, but also not too far from the previous ones, the other game of this magical trio of April has also arrived, namely Outriders: a third-person shooter with online multiplayer elements always has great potential, especially when based on such a well-constructed setting and support that promises to be of considerable magnitude. Below the podium, the votes spread over a wide range of titles, among which New Pokémon Snap emerged.

The most awaited by readers

Even the result of the survey proposed to readers remained uncertain until the end, hanging in the balance especially between the first two games to then reach the definitive crowning of NieR Replicant as the most anticipated game of April 2021 also in this case. It is confirmed that the Square Enix series has obtained a considerable injection of popularity thanks to Nier: Automata, and rightly the publisher has decided to take advantage of this situation to relaunch the previous game, which will now be able to enjoy a certainly higher visibility. It is an excellent operation, because the original NieR certainly deserved more appreciation than it originally collected, as demonstrated by its status as a true cult achieved only after years of release. Evidently, even the readers of share this position if they have elected it as the most awaited game of the new month coming.

The most accredited competitor has arrived second not far away, in any case: Returnal is a very promising game, whose only element of doubt could be linked to the launch price, considering that Housemarque is specialized above all on digital titles and small productions while in this case it focuses on a triple A distribution. In any case, the curriculum speaks for itself and, regardless of the prices, is made up of great games and even Returnal, as far as we have seen, seems to be in line with that pedigree. Definitely detached, in third position, we find Outriders, which is also surpassed by the typical "none" choice that at least in this case does not dominate the first classified titles. The Square Enix shooter therefore remains among the most anticipated games of the month and could count on a good longevity, being brought to multiplayer. Below the podium, the most voted title, but slightly above the others, turns out to be Oddworld: Soulstorm, also offered among the free PS Plus games in April 2021.
