Official description

Nothing is as it seems in Square Enix's latest action adventure game, set in a crumbling world plagued by disease and dark, unrecognizable creatures. Players assume the role of the unyielding protagonist, NIER, resolute in his quest to discover a cure for his daughter, who is infected with the Black Scrawl virus. With powerful allies and a mysterious book, NIER encounters things that will confound even the mightiest of warriors.

Editor note

The Japanese got two versions of Nier, Gestalt and Replicant. In Gestalt the protagonist is a middle-aged man and father of Yonah, the girl, while in Replicant he's a teenager or so and brother of Yonah. Other than some dialog and plot changes to accommodate the difference in age and relation to Yonah, the games are identical.

Apparently Replicant version was only released on PS3.
