E3: Square Enix unveils Nier

Action adventure for PS3, 360.

Square Enix has unveiled action adventure game Nier for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Bullet Witch developer Cavia will do the honours and hopes to launch sometime next year, according to the Nier website.

Nier is also the name of the "unyielding" protagonist, who sets out to find a cure for his daughter. She's infected with the Black Scrawl lurgy, which has claimed most of the world, leaving once-proud cities in decay and ruin.

Nier uses big swords and axes to see off strange shadows on his journey, and can chain his attacks and draw on magical powers, too.

Nier is of a Bayonetta or Devil May Cry bent, judging by the first trailer.
