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 and interview with Yosuke Saito below.
