The launch of Nier draws closer, as Square Enix today narrowed the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game's release window to this spring. Previously, the publisher had confirmed only that the game would arrive in 2010.
In the action role-playing game, players will take control of the eponymous protagonist as he fights to cure an apocalyptic plague and save his daughter. In addition to engaging in blood-soaked combat, gamers will spend time boosting Nier's armory, buffing his spells, and working with a shifting assortment of allies.
Nier is being developed by Cavia, the studio behind Bullet Witch and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
