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.
