Nier Trailer Shows Equal Amounts of Hack, Slash and Magic

Square Enix in RPG shocker! Okay, so Nier is another RPG from the house that Final Fantasy built, telling the story of titular hero, Nier and a quest to find his daughter a cure for the dreaded Black Scrawl disease, which is also plaguing the land.
This latest trailer shows that Nier is actually looking more than just a little shoddy with the visuals, sporting flat, ugly textures and generic looking character models. A shame really, considering that the central conceit isn't actually that bad.
As Nier, you come across a book called Grimoire Weiss that grants you all manner of crazy hack and slash powers, amply demonstrated in the new video.
And get a load of Grimoire Weiss forgetting his line at the end of the trailer! Hahahaha! So funny!
In the words of Nier himself, "What!?"
