Square Enix may have grand plans for action game Nier, judging by evidence of a sequel or companion game.

Dubbed Nier: Replicant, it appears in a two-page spread in Japanese magazine Famitsu (spotted by 1UP), which promises a proper reveal next week.

The teaser depicts a white-haired, scantily clad lady posing above the text, "Beyond revenge lies crazed desperation."

Nier (known as Nier Gestalt in Japan), meanwhile, is an action-adventure being created by Bullet Witch developer Cavia for PS3 and Xbox 360. Nier refers to the hero, who sets out to find a cure for his daughter, who is infected some lurgy that's ravaged the world. He uses big swords to get answers.
