    Nier Reincarnation has a new trailer in English and is now available for pre-registration on Android and iOS in Europe and North America.

    The NieR franchise certainly appears to be undergoing a renaissance since the release of NieR: Automata in 2017. While the recent remaster of NieR: Replicant has dominated headlines and player attention, the mobile spinoff Nier Reincarnation It is too turning news .

    Publisher Square Enix and developer Applibot have just opened pre-registration on Google Play and the App Store. The studios followed up the announcement with a new English story trailer for NieR Reincarnation.

    The NieR Reincarnation development team includes many series veterans who have worked on NieR: Gestalt, NieR: Automata, and both versions of Replicant. This includes director Yoko Taro, producer Yosuke Saito, and composer Keiichi Okabe. Considering that Yoko Taro is also the creator of the series, it's more than likely that the mobile spinoff will stay true to the main series' melancholy spirit.

    The new trailer, released Tuesday, appears to support that interpretation. The game stars an amnesiac Girl in White who wakes up in a mysterious realm called the Cage. Aided by a ghost-like entity named Mama, she explores the strange world in search of memories of her. 

    The game also features fairytale-inspired segments in addition to its highly atmospheric 3D graphics. These appear to represent the recovered memories of Girl in White and serve as a framing device for the game's combat encounters. NieR Reincarnation utilizes a turn-based combat system similar to some installments of Final Fantasy. 

    This makes it a substantial departure from the more action-oriented design of the series. However, such a change would be understandable given the limitations imposed by games on a mobile device.

    NieR Reincarnation has already been released in Japan, but is still traveling to North America and Europe. Interested players can pre-register for the iOS version via the App Store or the Android version via the Google Play Store. Android users also have a chance to be selected for the upcoming closed beta of NieR Re[in] harpsichord. To further encourage pre-registration, Square Enix and Applibot are offering a special registration promotion. If 300.000 people pre-register, all players will receive 3.000 free gems to use in the summon.

    The mention of gems and summons suggests that NieR Reincarnation will likely contain some degree of gacha mechanics. This can be unpleasant for some players, as such systems are often functionally identical to the much-maligned loot boxes. Fans will have to expect the system to look like Impact Genshin's relatively benign gacha mechanic. Intrusive ads may not mesh well with NieR's atmospheric playstyle and philosophical narrative.

    O NieR Reincarnation is under development for Android and iOS.
