To celebrate the launch of Nier
, the folks at Square have released another page of the comic book which explains some of the plot behind the game on the game's official webpage
. Of course you can always go back and check out the first page
of the comic if you missed it but we're hoping that the final page is up later this week. The early review scores have been fairly positive but I'm going to hold off on praising the game until we get our hands on the game.
Comic Continues Sneak Peek Into NIER’S Closely Guarded Storyline
LOS ANGELES (April 26, 2010) – Square Enix has released the second installment of the three-part comic book based on NIER, the mysterious and intriguing upcoming action-RPG that has been shrouded in mystery since its announcement last year. Developed in conjunction with DC Comics’ WildStorm Studios, the NIER comic provides a sneak peek for gamers into the dark mythology behind NIER. Both the first and second part of the comic are now available as a free download from the game’s official website at http://na.niergame.com/.
In the second edition of the comic book, Nier’s companion Kaine tells her own story to follow-up the story told by Grimoire Weiss in the first comic. Kaine tells of fighting off dozens of shades to save a child lost in an abandoned village. How this tale fits into the overall mythology of NIER is up to gamers to decide.
The final installment of the NIER comic book, which will continue to unveil the mysterious underpinnings of the game’s story and setting, will be released next week.
NIER is set to release on April 27 for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
