As I try not to let myself get too excited for big budget Square-Enix games lately, I haven't really been following Nier: Gestalt. The above trailer has successfully demolished that stance. It's simply packed full of way too many awsome things to not have completely grabbed my attention.
Among those things are a spooky atmosphere, a few hundred gallons of blood, a robot, magic circles, scary monsters, and blades as far as the eye can see. Oh, and also a pretty girl in an assless, underboob-displaying babydoll dress, dual-weilding giant saws. That happened.
It's all set to appropriately epic music and is a fine piece of production on the whole. If the actual game lives up to the incredible badassery of its trailer, my wallet is in even more trouble than it already was for 2010. That's assuming it comes stateside not too long after its Japanese release, of course. This just went from "don't care" to one of my most anticipated titles of next year in a matter of seconds. Simply gorgeous.
