Square Enix' NIER Unveiled

Square Enix had decided to jump on the pre-E3 game announcement bandwagon, making live their site for a game called Nier.

Looking over the screens and the college art film trailer, it looks like the game will be Square's answer to Bayonetta, which in turn was Grasshopper's answer to Devil May Cry.

The game is being developed by Cavia, which also developed Bullet Witch and Drakengard 2. According to the website, players will assume the role of the "unyielding protagonist", NIER, who is resolute in his quest to discover a cure for his daughter, who is infected with the Black Scrawl virus.

The game will feature chain attacks, multiple weapons, magic and a "beautiful, immersive world presented in signature Square Enix style."
