NieR is going to welcome a new addition soon with the new F2P mobile game NieR: Re[in]carnation. Square Enix has released a new trailer and announced closed beta testing in Japan.
The main character of NieR Re[in]carnation is a girl in a black dress. She wakes up on a cold stone floor in a strange castle. She is followed by a little ghost called “Mama.”
NieR creator Yoko Taro is creative director of Re[in]carnation. The music is created by Keiichi Okabe, composer of the series. However, it’s better not to have too much hope: as Eurogamer says, Taro confirmed that the game will be monetized on the principle of “gacha” — a Japanese variety of lootboxes.
Closed beta testing of Re[in]carnation will take place in Japan from July 29 to August 5. A European release is yet to be confirmed.
Of course, no one forgets about NieR for home platforms — there should be a reissue of the first part with the terrible name NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
