In Japan, the original game was released in two flavors. PS3 got Nier Replicant(exclusive for Japan), which featured a younger protagonist while Xbox 360 got Nier Gestalt. In Nier Gestalt, Nier-a middle-aged man is the protagonist who is searching for a cure for his daughter. While in Nier Replicant, Nier is a teenage boy who fights monsters in a dark, apocalyptic world.
