NieR Re[in]carnation - Original Mobile Game by Square Enix Going Global

Nier Reincarnation Mobile RPG for iOS and Android Gameplay


NieR Re[in]carnation is a heavily anticipated mobile Gacha JRPG based on the NieR Franchise from PC and console. NieR Reincarnation is published by Square Enix and developed by Applibot with an expected global release in early 2021. In this article, let's talk about what exactly is NieR Re[in]carnation and what should you expect from the gameplay. Read below for more.


Yoko Taro, one of the head writers for NieR Reincarnation mentions that the game is connected to the other NieR titles but is 100% its own title with a unique storyline. The story in Re[in]carnation focuses around a little girl in a white dress who has lost her memories and is companioned by a spirit like creature named Mama. We soon discover we've been transported to an alternate future inside a world of cages filled by towers and dungeons. Mama tells us we must atone for our past sins and reawaken the forgotten world.

Long story short, the game has 3 play elements, 3D exploration mode with no combat, 3D turn-based combat and a 2D cinematic play style for fragment puzzles and side quests. We are often flipped back from the present to the past as we progress through the story.

I must say that I was a bit disappointed to find out NieR Reincarnation contains two common mobile RPG stigmas, a Gacha system and auto-combat. Like other turn-based RPGs on mobile devices, players can use a Gacha system to pull for weapons to enhance your allies while the combat can be played manually or auto-played. Each character will have various equipments including a main weapon, sub weapons, memories and a companion. Levelling / enhancing these will increase the overall power of the party.

Players will be able to play the main story, a dungeon mode, complete daily tasks and some alternate challenges for goodies. There will indeed by a stamina system in the game which will limit your daily play time unless you decide to pay for additional stamina.

Will it be Free to Play?

NieR Re[in]carnation will indeed be free to play on both iOS and Android, however the game will have micro-transactions like many others of the genre. You will be able to spend money to pull the Gacha system and buy convenience items as well as stamina.

Final Thoughts

From what I've seen, NieR Re[in]carnation will have an incredible storyline production with amazing voice actors/actresses. The generic set-up of the turn-based combat system does worry me a little in terms of how enjoyable the gameplay will be. However, with the exploration and 2D cinematic mode, we may be getting more than a typical turn-based mobile RPG. I for one am very excited to see the global release of this game.
