Nier Set For Spring 2010



Along with confirming a spring release window, Square Enix sent us the game’s box art. It appears we’re getting Nier Gestalt on both platforms in North America.

The Nier, as in Nier the protagonist, pictured on both boxes is the muscular Conan-like warrior from Nier Gestalt, an Xbox 360 only game in Japan. Nier Replicant, the PlayStation 3 version, features a younger, bishounen hero searching for a cure to the Black Scrawl virus for his sister. In Nier Gestalt, Nier is a father and Yonah, his daughter, is plagued by the Black Scrawl.


Square Enix bullet points “unbelievable story twists and reveals” as a feature. You know what would be a twist? Confusing everyone by including Replicant as a free after-you-beat-the-game second quest.
