The message reads like a hopeful and thankful statement about NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... and NieR Automata's success. With Taro explaining this game is not a remake but an upgraded version of the original title.

I mean, Square Enix recently did that remake of FINAL FANTASY VII right? I saw that and I thought it would be terribly inconvenient to be compared to such a massive blockbuster, so that was when I decided to call Replicant ver.1.22… a “version upgrade”.

Taro did reveal that the numbers in the title are meaningless as they're just random but also touching on NieR Automata's massive success. How it selling millions of copies was a fluke.

I mean, come on, I made it! Automata selling was a fluke, and all my other stuff has hardly sold anything worthy of note. If you really do go ahead and manufacture all these discs and then store them in a big pile in a warehouse somewhere, the only thing we can do with that will be to have a good game of frisbee. Although, I mean… that does sound like fun and all…

The message ends with Taro asking fans to be nice and provide a positive experience for everyone. Leaving a positive impact will make the world better. Considering NieR Automata's messages on life, death, purpose, and memory perhaps 2B, 9S, and A2 would find solace in that.

NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... launches on April 23rd for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
