Square Enix has finally provided some details about when we can expect NieR Reincarnation to release for iOS and Android here in the West. The hotly anticipated spin-off mobile game launched in Japan earlier this year, and now the English version is available to pre-order, with an expected release date of November 6th.

The game is set in a place called The Cage and follows The Girl of Light as she begins to explore this mysterious world that is filled with buildings so tall they touch the sky. On her journey, she is accompanied by a creature called Mama, who looks like a stereotypical ghost and acts as her guide throughout NieR Reincarnation.

The pair are not alone in The Cage, however. They will also have to contend with The Dark Monster, a strange individual that looks like a cross between an overgrown insect and a knight. It doesn't speak but clearly possesses enough intelligence to have a goal it is looking to complete.

You will also meet other characters during the game who will assist you in battle. Here you will give commands to your various party members as you look to vanquish your foes. However, the game will also feature an auto mode for those who'd rather experience the world and take in the story rather than becoming bogged down in battle mechanics.

NieR Reincarnation is available to pre-order now over on the App Store and Google Play, ahead of its potential release on November 6th. It will be a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
