Nier Selling Out In Japan



It looks like Kaine is working her charm on Nier’s sales. According to multiple local reports, Nier Replicant for the PlayStation 3 is sold out in Japan. Square Enix have promised a new shipment will be arriving over the weekend to appease fans.


The interesting things is, while Nier Gestalt for the Xbox 360 is still available, the less effeminate version of the game isn’t easy to find either. This could likely be because fewer copies of Gestalt were shipped in the first place.


Watching Nier on the sales charts should give us something to look forward to…although, we’re not entirely certain if Media-Create operate during Golden Week, which begins this Thursday.
