We've grown accustomed to not knowing what's going on in Nier trailers -- at least, as accustomed as one can become to incomprehensible imagery. So there are two floating, sentient books now? And ... one of them kills Nier? We guess? At least this trailer's got some visuals.

According to early reports about this week's Famitsu, the magazine's "Cross Review" awarded Nier a score of 10/8/8/8. As translated by 1UP, one reviewer said that " the story is a lot less twisted than you'd expect." Of course, that leaves plenty of room for twistedness. Nier arrives April 27.
