Nier Replicant Revealed

IGN: Last week, the appearance of NieR in Famitsu under the name NieR Gestalt caused some concern for PS3 owners. The issue wasn't the name -- it was that the game was listed exclusively for the Xbox 360.

Many assumed that the game, announced at E3 as a multiplatform title, had been cancelled on PS3, something which Square Enix's international offices denied. Today, with the arrival of a new Famitsu, we can confirm that NieR is still on the way for PS3 release -- only it may be an entirely different game from the 360 version.

PS3 will be getting NieR RepliCant, a game that was teased through an ad in last week's Famitsu. As with Gestalt, the game is in development at Drakengard studio Cavia for Japanese release in 2010.

Thought it was this rather than a droped PS3 version. Still all it means is we're getting iwo versions of a game noone cares about. Are they hoping to sell it by starting a flame war that noone cares about either?

I think they might be trying to avoid complaints of dumbing down or trying to appeal to the eastern demographic with Replicant and the Western demographic with Gestalt.

I don't think they're trying to start a flame war but it's inevitable.


i probably wont get either
