Released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Australia, Europe, Japan and North America in April 2010. In Japan, the game was an Xbox 360 exclusive titled Nier Gestalt, while an alternate version titled Nier Replicant was released for PlayStation 3 with a younger main character.
The Gameplay follows the main character, Nier, as he attempts to find a cure for an illness, known as the Black Scrawl, which has infected his daughter, Yonah.
Nier is a skilled fighter trained in the ways of the one-handed sword, as the game progresses he gains mastery over the spear and two-handed sword. Those close to Nier see him as a kind-hearted man with a strong sense of honor and an incredible work ethic
