Those familiar with NieR Automata and patiently waiting for NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 will want to check out this upcoming NieR mobile title in the works. NieR Reincarnation will be a free to play mobile game with microtransaction elements set to release on February 18, 2021 in Japan on iOS and Android.
If your Japanese isn’t quite up to par, fortunately an English localization is in development. Be sure to check out this title once it releases in Japan – you don’t even have to worry about story spoilers when watching the trailers!
Free to Play RPG Gacha Game
NieR Reincarnation is set to be a free to play game with added microtransactions (common in Gacha games). This format has been growing in popularity through games like Genshin Impact.
This is an excellent approach to “try it before you buy it” without actually needing to spend a single cent to finish the story – just might be an extra grind. It’s better to know what you are getting into first: if this is your first Taro Yoko game, his unique method of story-telling and applied themes can be trippy and require bit of a time sink to get the full experience.
Recently on February 16th (2021) Square Enix showcased the game on a livestream. It contains the first 10 minutes of gameplay revealing the turn-based battle system and character cast. Watch the video of the stream if you want to know more!
Story Centered Title
The famous Taro Yoko (Drakengard, NieR) returns to the spotlight with his genius directing in this new entry. The NieR franchise has always been highly praised for its masterful writing and story-telling. Returning producer Yosuke Saito will be lending a hand with the writing to keep the quality top notch.
Saito revealed that this title will be strongly story centered and text heavy in comparison to other social games on the market. Even so, this game was designed to appease to gamers who enjoy playing on their smart phone.
Connected to other NieR Games but regarded as its own Title
This game is neither a predecessor or a spin off title. It is a standalone title. Those who might be exclusive mobile gamers will be in for a treat that they don’t need to access other NieR titles on PC and console to get the complete experience. Returning fans of the series will also be happily greeted with Easter eggs as you progress deeper into the game as well.
