Square Enix has a close-to-worldwide release planned for Nier. The game launches in Japan on April 22 and arrives in the West shortly after.
Nier and the Black Scrawl spreads to PAL territories the next day, with a scheduled release on April 23. Then Nier finally lands in North America on April 27. Not many Square Enix published games go from Japan to Europe to North America. What was the last one, The World Ends With You?
That game had a good plot twist and Square Enix keeps saying Nier has plenty of those. Nier is on a quest find a cure to the Black Scrawl for his daughter Yonah. But, everything in the game isn’t what it seems. During his journey players will learn the truth about the Black Scrawl, Nier, his daughter, and (hopefully) why his only friend is a flying book.
