Nier Replicant Trailer Hints At Nier Gestalt Connection

By Spencer . September 18, 2009 . 6:43am

Take a look at Nier Replicant before Tokyo Game Show starts. The PlayStation 3 version of Nier focuses on a man fighting to save his sister and has a different style than Nier Gestalt, which is for Xbox 360.




The text at the end suggests there is a link between the two stories. Another part of the movie shows content in Nier Replicant and Nier Gestalt overlaps. Watch the movie at the 1:10 mark.


Square Enix released a screenshot of the same Kaine and the monster scene to promote Nier Gestalt.



Also, the trailer has English text and Japanese subtitles. Seems like a sign that we’ll see Nier Replicant outside of Japan…

  • Never get why in games where there is combat, fighting and sword/weapons involved, the women characters run into battle with little to no clothes, let alone armor. Oh, and high heels, very practical.

    Character design is too geared towards perverts.

    • TTTT

      yeah, totally agree.
      it all seems kind of silly doesnt it?

    • kurono

      Thing is, in this game… The female character isn’t exactly a female…

      • Equus

        Heh. “It’s a trap!!!”

        • kylehyde

          I know all there is to know about the crying game
          Ive had my share of the crying game

          First there are kisses, then there are sighs
          And then before you know where you are
          Youre sayin goodbye

          I know this is really old, but I don’t wanna make lady gaga’s jokes, also this song rocks.

          Possible reactions of the perverts when discovered the truth

    • Seriously! Glad to see people are commenting about this in an intelligent way.

  • TTTT

    it is looking to have some potential. I think I may end up purchasing if all goes well with it.
    I just dont like that girls skeezy clothes, especially the shot from behind pictured above.

    • thebanditking

      Well relax because if the exact translation is to 100% represent what they are going for that girl in Skeezy clothes is actually a half man half woman.

    • TTTT

      I should have chosen a better word than skeezy. Still, I like most everything about the trailer besides this character pictured above regardless of the character’s gender(s).

  • thebanditking

    Good to see you uys noticed that the two games share quite a bit including Kaine, as a character. Though like my other post I wonder if she will be a tranny in both or if her story will change just like Nier himself did?

    • TTTT

      I have heard s/he is a hermaphrodite not a transvestite.

      • thebanditking

        Yes I suppose your correct, but I still wonder if they actually mean that she has both male and female gentailia or if they only imply that she is a hermaphrodite because she is possed by a male spirit in a female body, because in that case Moehime from Muramasa would be the same thing.

  • Bafish

    Don’t like the sleazy clothing either.

  • Aoshi00

    Amazing trailer and soundtrack. Seriously like the design, so far we’ve only seen the characters in their 3D models, I wonder who the character designer is, the hooded figures and skeleton look very cool.

    To date, the game w/ the “saving younger sister” theme that impresses me the most is Drakengard, such a dark tale from beginning to end. The game that made the least impression in the same regard, the Last Remnant.
