In recent hours, Square Enix announced that a Closed Beta of Nier Reincarnation, the mobile title of the series born from the mind of Yoko Taro, will soon be held, at least in Japan.
The closed beta phase will be available for both iOS and Android and is currently scheduled from July 29 to August 5. We do not know if even in the West interested players will be able to try the title.
Those who are curious about NieR Re[in]carnation can already register on the official website. It is worth mentioning that 20,000 people will be accepted, 10,000 on iOS, and 10,000 on Android. In the event that this figure is exceeded, Square Enix will organize a lottery to draw the lucky ones to participate in the closed beta.
NieR Re[in]carnation is developed by Applibot, a studio known for its work on Blade Xlord, Seven’s Code, and Kamurai Tribe, and is produced by Yosuke Saito and directed by Yoko Taro. The character design is by CyDesignation, while the director is Daichi Matsukawa.
NieR Re[in]carnation will be released on mobile as free-to-play with microtransactions on a date yet to be revealed. A gameplay video was also released a few weeks ago, visible at the bottom of this article.
The main character seems to be a small girl with a ghost as a companion who will sneak up on a temple partially destroyed by, perhaps, an earthquake or other natural event.
Recall that Nier Reincarnation will release on Android and iOS soon.
