Well the title is a little bit of a lie. One is new, the other is only new-ish.
The first trailer is the new trailer of NieR Replicant which is currently Japanese only PlayStation 3 exclusive. The other trailer is of NieR Gestalt (known simply as Nier for North America and Europe) is a Xbox 360 exclusive in Japan, but in North America and Europe it is on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Yeah, it is a little confusing.
Both games are being touted as separate experiences in Japan, but the amount of change in each title has yet to be seen.
NieR Gestalt, or rather the one we are getting, is currently planned for a world wide release of April 23rd for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe.

NIER has a Spring 2010 launch window. In the mean time you can check out the screen shots and the trailer after the jump.

If you were looking to check out Square Enix’s stylish hack and slash Nier Gestalt then you won’t have to wait much longer. Square-Enix says they plan on releasing it some time during Spring 2010. Unlike Japan, the title is not a X-box 360 exclusive in North America since it will also be available for PS3 as well.
Nier Replicant, the PS3 exclusive title in the same series in Japan, hasn’t been announced for North America yet. The games look similar, but Nier Gestalt’s story focuses on a father and daughter while Nier Replicant’s story focuses on a brother and sister.
