Square Enix released a new update trailer for the mobile action RPG NieR Re[in]carnation introducing story content from “Flickers of Light.”
This will be a new chapter for players that follows a narrative story of a military captain who carries a lot of weight on his shoulders. The update will be available on August 10, 2021 for western players on iOS and Android devices.
NieR Re[in]carnation introduces a girl who wakes up in a mysterious place. 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 command screen. 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.
There will be in-app purchases, but we aren’t sure if this will be tied to story progression, party members, or equipment. Players can explore different environments on a 2D screen as the party journeys across the lands throughout the narrative.
