After Final Fantasy XIII and Kingdom Hearts BBS, Square Enix is out with another hit. NieR Replicant/Gestalt combines beautiful visuals, exciting game mechanics and enchanting characters into one package. The most unique thing about this game is the difference between the Replicant PlayStation3 version and the Gestalt Xbox360 version.

While the storyline remained largely the same, the relationships between characters differ. In the Gestalt version, NieR is a heroic father, trying to save his young daughter from the black scripture disease and in the Replicant version, NieR is a doting brother.

Although character designs differ, the system is the same. You dabble in magic, play with all kinds of weapons and collect experience points. Sometimes you can collect "words" from monsters, these give you special skills you'd find crucial in the boss battles.

The Japanese versions of Gestalt and Replicant are coming in April and the US versions are coming in May:
