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.
