Nier Swears To Launch In April

By Spencer . February 1, 2010 . 11:37pm

Square Enix set a date for Nier Gestalt (macho Nier, Xbox 360) and Nier Replicant (young Nier, PS3). Both versions will ship in Japan on April 22. Reserve the game and you get a mini-album with select songs as bonus.


While the titular character and back stories are different, the gameplay in Nier Gestalt and Nier Replicant is the same. We’re getting Nier: Gestalt on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 under the name Nier. Square Enix said a Western release is slated for spring. Sounds like it won’t be far behind Japan’s launch then.

    I’m so irked we’re not getting Replicant, Its more visualy appealing than Gestalt. I’d probably play both if they were both heading to our shores- but on the flipside I’ll most likely leave Gestalt alone :-/

      at least the one that isnt getting released in the US is on a system that is not region locked(so far)
      Japanese 360 games tend to be locked at least that was true a couple years ago.

      How is it more appealing? It’s the same bloody game, outside of the main character being younger. They both look pretty darn bad.
