Nier Story Trailer Is Bloody Cryptic

By Spencer . April 14, 2010 . 4:25pm

A mysterious disease, hobbit-skeleton distraught over deaths it may have caused, and … Nier sacrificing himself for a talking book? Nier’s plot remains undecipherable and this video isn’t going to give any answers.


I supopse that should be expected since the development team told Siliconera Nier reveals its secrets slowly and you’ll need to play it more than once to understand everything. This trailer raises a few more questions like who is Kaine seeking revenge from and who or what is that other floating book?


“You will understand in time,” the book spoke. What time? April 23 in Europe and April 27 for North America.

    This trailer totally made me consider buying the game. Amazing. But still going to wait for reviews.

      Yeah, I’m still absolutely torn on this game. I loved Drakenguard 1 and 2, but I still think the main character looks terrible. Wished they would’ve picked the replicant character. Still don’t understand why they couldn’t do both here either. Gameplay looks great though.

        I’m getting this because I loved the first Drakengard too (only played very little of the 2nd one). When they say plot twist, I know it would be messed up just like Drakengard.

    • Same thing happened to me, even though I don’t really like the main character…
      BTW is it me or did his daughter turn into that roundy-faced-extremely- creepy thing?
      And I bet that doing certain things will make you be able to play as the girl with a you-know-what.

    • Wished we got Replicant, though. The game looks awesome! But the main character is a turn-off

    Isn’t it refreshing that the PS3 is getting the more desired version for once!

  • karasuKumo

    I’ll be getting this :D By the way is that Snow Villiers’ voice actor? I need to finish FF13 ¬_¬

    Graphics are dull but story is delicious.

    Nier Gestalt = Hulk Hogan. Nier Replicant = whoever Hulk is beating that night. Can’t wait for this game!

    By the way, how do we pronounce Nier?
