During the preshow of The Game Awards 2020 Square Enix showed a new trailer by NieR Replicant, the remake of the first NieR.

The video shows the progress made in development after the first images shown at TGS 2020 courses and focuses on combat. The gameplay offers regular results, with bladed attacks interspersed with magical attacks. The fighting style looks quite different from the original game.
