NieR Re[in]carnation Collaborates With Persona 5 Royal; Hopefully We Don’t See End of Service A Year Later

Square Enix’s NieR Re[in]carnation mobile game recently announced that they would be collaborating with Persona 5 Royal. The collaboration period will last from September 9 to October 13 and will feature Joker, Queen, and Fox as playable units.

While Joker and Queen will be available to summon through the gacha system, Fox, on the other hand, will be obtainable for free, so long as you manage to exchange for him using the in-game medals. His Katana exclusive weapon is also included in the exchange.

In this collaboration event, the developers have confirmed that they would be giving away 3,000 gems, a ★★★★ Premium Summon Ticket, Zenith’s Brilliance, and many other rewards. A special story featuring Joker and Queen will also be available for players to enjoy. Furthermore, there will be, of course, a paid gacha where you have a higher chance of getting Joker and Queen. I’m sure I don’t need to warn you that, though. Here are the images of the crossover characters, which you can view in our gallery:

But, as you might’ve noticed by the article’s title, it’s sort of infamous around the gacha community that any title that collaborates with Persona 5 in any capacity, unfortunately, announces a service shut down about a year after the event ends. So, uh…see you in October 2023 when NieR Re[in]carnation announces its shutdown? Time will tell, I suppose.

You can view the Japanese trailer for the Persona 5 collaboration here:

For those unaware, NieR Re[in]carnation introduces a girl who wakes up in a mysterious, eerie environment. Guided only by a creature known as “Mama,” the girl sets out to get back what was lost and atone for her sins. Inside what is known as the Cage, she will find her answers.

During gameplay, players will battle monsters using a turn-based command screen. In addition, there’s equipment that can be found and customized across your party with an auto-mode option that attacks enemies. The game is aimed to be easy to play, even for those who are not good at games.
