SQUARE ENIX and Applibot invite players around the world to dive into a new NieR story with the release of the highly anticipated version for mobile devices. Fans worldwide can download NieR Re[in]carnation through Appvn.
We’ve known for a while that NieR Re[in]carnation landed on Android on July 28th. After a very long wait, the newest NieR game NieR Reincarnation (Free) from Square Enix is finally available to download worldwide for free. NieR Reincarnation was originally revealed at the 10th anniversary livestream for the series. The global release was announced to get a full English dub as well. The NieR Reincarnation global launch includes a NieR Automata collaboration featuring 2B, 2P, and more. Ahead of servers going live later today, watch the NieR Reincarnation launch collaboration trailer below:
If you’re interested in seeing how NieR Re[in]carnation plays, I took the turn-based RPG for a spin back when it was still in testing and recorded the above hour-long video for a first look. More or less, I came away impressed. Despite the fact this is a free-to-play gacha game, it offers a lot of polish. The music is absolutely phenomenal, the graphics offer a slick storybook feel, and overall I never felt pushed into spending money to unlock new weapons or characters. Yes, PvP is in the game, and yes, because of this, the game can be pay to win. But if you’re only interested in jumping in to take in the story as a NieR fan, there’s a lot here to like.
All in all, there are much worse free-to-play gacha games on the Appvn. Sure, NieR Re[in]carnation still contains many of the pitfalls you’d expect from a F2P release, such as auto combat, but thankfully the developer put a lot of heart into this, and so the abundance of polish is difficult to deny. In the end, this is a game for NieR fans more than anyone else, though if you’re big into gacha games or simply want to check out the new kid on the block, NieR Re[in]carnation is easily worth a quick look.
