Square Enix have said that the Japanese version of Nier for the Xbox 360 will be the international version of the game.
Simply put: Gestalt and Replicant will be released in Japan as two separate games for the 360 and PS3 respectively. But Gestalt will be released on the 360 and PS3 together elsewhere.
At least, that seems to be the assumption according to Andriasang‘s translation of the latest Famitsu Xbox 360, particuarly an interview with executive producer Yosuke Saito.
Saito also confirms that although there will be no co-op in the game, DLC is being considered.

Square Enix has released new details for both Nier Replicant on PS3 and Nier Gestalt for Xbox 360.
Apparently, both are set in the same world with the same basic plot – the swordsman trying to save a girl named Yonah.
In Replicant, Nier looks younger and a lot more refined than the rugged Nier in Gestalt, and also in Replicant, Yonah is Nier’s younger sister where as she is his daughter in Gestalt.
Still with us? Good, because apparently, Nier also has a talking grimoire that accompanies him on his quest, as well as Kaine – a hermaphrodite whose left half has been taken over by a monster. Because of being bullied as a kids for her condition, she dresses like a lass with full-on thong armor, but is “violent, vulgar and man-like in personality.”
No word yet on whether the PS3 version will land stateside or not, but the 360 is planned. Maybe Square will reveal more at TGS.

The new issue of Famitsu has a two-page advert for Nier Replicant with the tagline “Beyond revenge lies crazed desperation.”
This is a Square Enix thing, which promises to reveal what it’s all about next week.
If the “Neir” part sounds familiar to you, 1UP has you covered.
Nier’s the Cavia-developed action game slated for PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2010, and Square wanted it to be a “hit in the West”, so plans to release it in Japan were shelved for a while, but Nier was formally announced for Japan today under the name Nier Gestalt.
As far as Nier Replicant is concerned though, guess we’ll find out next week.
