A surprise Prime Day deal for Nier Replicant has given the remastered action game a healthy $15 discount just two months after its release. The PS4 and Xbox One versions are available at this reduced price, and both versions are also playable on their new-gen counterparts (with the PS5 and Xbox Series X delivering higher frame rates and shortened load times). 

There's just one small catch: you'll need to try the one-month Amazon Prime free trial to take advantage of this deal, assuming you aren't a Prime subscriber yourself. This discount is only available to Prime subs, but if you've never used the one-month Prime trial, you can easily get around that to take advantage of this deal and others like it during this year's Prime Day sale.

Nier Replicant is much more than just a remaster, but it's so authentic that it doesn't feel right to call it a reboot. It's a great fit for fans of the original game as well as those who got into the series with Nier: Automata. 

Released on April 22, Nier Replicant was initially described as a "version up" by original director Yoko Taro. However, in a conversation with our friends at Play magazine, producer Yosuke Saito clarified that the very bones of the game have been retooled for modern platforms. Combat was updated using Nier: Automata's stylish action as a reference, additional voice work was added in, music was rearranged and rerecorded, and scenes cut from the original game were added back in. 

"To be honest, I think that it has evolved into so much more than a simple version up," Saito said. 

We've hunted down the best Prime Day PS5 deals and Prime Day Xbox Series X deals to help you make the most of the sale, and you'll also find plenty of other discounts among the Prime Day video game deals.
