IGN can exclusively announce that Nier Reincarnation, the mobile Nier spin-off from creator Yoko Taro, will be released on July 28.
A free download with in-app purchases, Nier Reincarnation is an action-RPG starring a Girl in White who wakes up in a realm called the Cage. This girl is aided by a ghost named Mama and two venture into this world trying to regain the girl’s memories.
You can check out an exclusive new trailer for the game below:
The game is rewarding its future players for pre-registering on the App Store and Google Play. Over 300,000 people have already pre-registered, meaning all players will start the game with Gems (the game’s currency) which can be spent to get in-game Summons. For every 100,000 more pre-registrations ahead of launch, Square Enix will increase the rewards players begin with.
Nier Reincarnation has been worked on by major parts of the mainline Nier team, including creative director Yoko Taro, composer Keiichi Okabe, and producer Yosuke Saito. We’ve previously shown off 9 minutes of gameplay, which gives you a sense of the game’s vibe.
