It might not be the game we were most excited by at E3 2009
, but upcoming action game Nier
is apparently already getting the franchise treatment. According to a two-page ad
spotted by 1UP
in the most recent Famitsu, "Nier Replicant" is set to be detailed in next week's issue of the Japanese magazine.
The spread features a scantily clad white-haired lady with a single line of text that reads, "Beyond revenge lies crazed desperation." Given the absolute dearth of information we have on the Nier
franchise, we're sorry to say we can offer little more than our furrowed brow to assuage your confusion over Replicant
's tagline. We do know that the name could very well change before it's formally announced on Western shores, as Nier
was recently announced in the same edition of Famitsu as "Nier Gestalt" -- known as to us as just Nier
. It appears as though at least some of our questions will be answered in next week's issue.
