Today Square Enix hosted a livestream from Japan dedicated to the upcoming NieR: Re[in]carnation mobile game.
The game is releasing in Japan on Feb. 18, so what we saw today is pretty much final.
First of all, we get to see new gameplay, including a shooting minigame which was almost inevitable.
On top of that, we learn that NieR: Re[in]carnation received almost a million pre-registrations in Japan as of Feb. 14. To be precise, 957,420.
Last, but certainly not least, the developers detailed the inevitable NieR: Automata collaboration that will be available on launch day.
Players will be able to get a login bonus building up to a “Emil Head” weapon. Until Feb 31 you’ll also be able to grab (via gacha) collaboration costumes including 2B, 9S, and A2.
A collaboration quest will also let you earn medals that can be exchanged for specific rewards. You can check out all the slides below.
We already know that Nier Re[in]carnation is coming west, but unlike Japan, we don’t have a release date just yet. It’s currently being localized and voices are being recorded in English.
If you’re interested in PC and console games, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… recently received a gameplay video showing just how similar to NieR: Automata combat has become, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
