NieR Re[in]carnation, the mobile version of the super popular action hack-and-slasher was announced a while back. We’ve been waiting with bated breath ever since for some more information about the game. And now we have some. NieR Re[in]carnation is up for pre-order on the App Store right now.
According to the App Store page, the game is set to launch on November 6th. That’s quite a long time to wait, and the date might change in the coming months. But still, pre-ordering stuff is cool, right?
The game looks like it’s going to be free and supported by IAPs. Which is pretty much exactly what we were expecting. And it’s recommended for devices from the iPhone 7 up. Which is also pretty much exactly what we were expecting.
Here’s all the blurb from the game’s App Store page.
Story / It is a place called The Cage.
A girl awakens on a cold stone floor.
She finds herself in an infinitely vast place filled with buildings that touch the very sky.
Guided by a mysterious creature who calls herself Mama, she begins to explore her new surroundings.
To reclaim what she has lost—and atone for her sins—she sets off on a journey through this place of unknown creation.
…A place known as The Cage.
When the girl came to, she was collapsed on the stone floor of The Cage. Though she is kind and has a bright personality, she wears a collar and bandages for reasons unknown, and is plagued each night by horrible dreams.
The Girl of Light
A mysterious creature who calls herself Mama. She seems to know something about The Cage, and acts as a guide for the girl.
The Dark Monster
A strange being that wanders The Cage. It resembles a knight in armor, but also a speechless insect. Regardless, it seems to have some kind of goal…
Battles play out by issuing commands to your characters.
This game includes an auto mode that makes your characters attack enemies all on their own, making it easy for people who aren’t as skilled at video games to join in and play as well.
