and DC Comics
have revealed a custom comic series that will explore the back story of Nier
, an action-adventure game developed by Cavia
and due to hit the store shelves on 27th April 2010, for PS3 and Xbox 360. The comics will reveal tantalizing clues about key characters from the game, including the title-character Nier; his disease-stricken daughter, Yonah; a conflicted and foul-mouthed fighting companion, Kainé; and, the talking book with an attitude, Grimoire Weiss. In addition, the NIER comics will address questions that have yet to be answered. Press 'read more' for details.
Update: we have a batch of concept art
and an article about The Shades, an entirely pervasive enemy faced throughout the game.
