Nier Replicant ver.1.22474487139… has five endings. Getting them all means putting in a bit of work and replaying sections of the remastered game multiple times. In this Nier Replicant remake guide, we’ll explain everything required to get endings A, B, C, D and E.

Nier Replicant endings

The endings are not mutually exclusive, so you can see them all in order — with a little bit of save slot shuffling. We’ll note any time you should make a special save.

Also, when you reach the halfway point of the game, you won’t be able to return to any content from the first half. Make sure to finish any side quests and, more importantly, collect any weapons before continuing on to the second part.

Since Endings C through E all require you to have all 33 Nier Replicant weapons, we’ll talk about those first. This is an endings guide. There are spoilers ahead.

Collect all Nier Replicant weapons

There are 33 weapons in the Nier Replicant remake. To see every ending the remastered game has to offer, you have to collect all 33.

Our Nier Replicant weapons guide lists every weapon along with how and where to find them. Make sure you’ve collected every Part 1 weapon before continuing to Part 2.

It doesn’t matter which weapon you use or which weapons you upgrade. You just need to have access to every one.

Nier Replicant Ending A

Ending A is the default ending. You get this ending just by finishing the Nier Replicant remake.

Subsequent reloads of this save file will start you at the halfway point of the game.

Nier Replicant Ending B

Reload your Ending A save file, and replay the second half of the game. You will see new cutscenes and a new ending.

Nier Replicant Ending C

Reload your Ending B save file. This will start you at the halfway point again. This time, though, make sure you collect any of the remaining 33 weaponsyou need all 33 to see this ending.

Visit a save point right before the final boss fight. After the fight, save your cleared game in a new slot.

After the final boss fight, you’ll face another, final-er boss. When you get an option, choose to kill them.

Nier Replicant Ending D

Reload your save from right before the Ending C boss fight. This time, when given the option, choose to spare their life.

This will erase your save file and will show you Ending D.

Nier Replicant Ending E

This is a new ending specific to Nier Replicant ver.1.22474487139…

After Ending D deletes your save file, start a new game with a different name. You’ll play normally until the fight against the huge shade in The Aerie where you recruit Kaine. The remainder of the Nier Replicant remake will play out differently with a new story and cutscenes.
