Square has released a video for Nier Replicant, which is expected sometime during 2010 for PS3.
It shows a rather strange world, where the hero of the game Nier, is on a quest to save his sister.
Nier Gestalt has our hero on a quest to save his daughter, and that version is out for Xbox 360.
Anyway, the video for Replicant is posted after the break. It’s a very interesting watch.

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.
