We didn't know much about Nier Reincarnation before a new trailer for the mobile game premiered today. Even after the trailer, the game is still shrouded in mystery, but at least we have a new glimpse of the game itself in action.
You can see the new trailer for Nier Reincarnation just below. This is the Nier mobile game being developed by mobile developer Applibot, with Nier Automata director Yoko Taro taking the reins as director to oversee the project.
As you might guess for a trailer directed by the person behind Nier Automata, the trailer plays things very close to the chest, not giving away too much about the general plot of Nier Reincarnation. We can at least see the combat of Reincarnation in action, which looks as though it's employing a turn-based battle system where you take control of a party of characters.
Speaking of characters, our main protagonist of sorts appears to be a young girl, running around very stylish ruins accompanied by a creature in a white cloth. Pod, is that you?
Currently, there's no set release date for Nier Reincarnation. There's not even any official word from Square Enix that the game is actually slated for a western release, but wherever it does end up releasing, it'll be launching on both Android and iOS devices.
Elsewhere for the Nier franchise at large, the remastered Nier Replicant is still in the pipeline. Although it doesn't have a release date right now, it'll be bringing the PS3 and Xbox 360 cult classic to modern consoles.
Nier Reincarnation isn't Yoko Taro's only mobile venture of late. This past month, SinoAlice, a gatcha-based mobile game that Taro directed, finally released in the west. Our Senior Editor Caty McCarthy spoke to Yoko Taro and several other SinoAlice developers on the nature of the mobile game, its story, characters, and more.
