What is Nier Reincarnation?

NieR Reincarnation is a free gacha RPG that was developed by Applibot Inc and published by Square Enix.

The game was originally released on mobile devices (both Android and iOS) in February 2021 in Japan, and later in July 2021, the game became global.

Being a sequel to the Nier: Automata game, players can collect characters and weapons from the same universe that they’ve been accustomed to for the past 12 years of NieR titles.

Nier Reincarnation Gameplay & Features

Gameplay & Features

The game starts with you (a girl) waking up in The Cage, where you encounter a mysterious creature who calls herself “Mama.”

Mama seems to know something about The Cage and she becomes the girl’s guide throughout the game.

A strange creature also wanders The Cage. It resembles a knight in armor, but also a speechless insect. It is unclear what its goals are, but it appears that it is searching for something…

If you’re a beginner and not that familiar with the controls, you will be pleased to know that in NieR Reincarnation you can choose to have your characters fight on their own in auto mode. This makes the game easy to play for anyone who wants to jump right in.

Nier Reincarnation Reviews

Player reviews

The game has a review rating score of 4.5 out of 5 on Google Play and a near-perfect 4.8/5 on the App Store.

With ratings so high it only means one thing: NieR Reincarnation is a pretty good sequel to NieR: Automata and players are overall enjoying the newest title of the franchise.

Still, there are some minor issues as reported by some players, namely some bugs with updating the game, and also the grind can become a bit too much for some, especially if they are completely free-to-play players.

Another big reason why some players might not fully enjoy Nier Reincarnation is the gacha system, similar to games such as Echoes of Mana or Summoners War.

You either have to rely heavily on your luck or spend some real-life money if you want to get the best characters and weapons in NieR Reincarnation.

Still, the game is P2W though, so players that don’t want to invest any money can definitely enjoy it, but they will have to grind out a bit more.

Overall we think that the game is an awesome sequel to NieR: Automata, and you should definitely give it a try if you’re a fan of the series.
