NieR Replicant looks exciting
Usually when we think about Square-Enix, we think of one genre and one genre only: the jRPG. But who’s to say that SE can’t branch out and do something different. Well that is exactly what they’re doing with their NieR games, Replicant for the PlayStation 3 and Gestalt for the Xbox 360. The NieR games are going to be action-RPGs, and from the look of this trailer, they’re not fucking around about the action part.
I don’t want to get too excited prematurely, but these games could really turn out to be the tits. If Square-Enix can nail a God of War or Devil May Cry type of game, while simultaneously adding in the epic story telling that they’re known for, we might have a AAA title on our hands.
