Today Square Enix hosted a livestreamed event about the popular mobile game NieR: Re[in]carnation, announcing new content.
Almost inevitably, the new content is an event dedicated to the upcoming reimagination of the original NieR, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
The event will be hosted on the Japanese version of the game starting on March 31, and it’ll allow players to unlock characters from the game.
