Longtime fans of the RPG IP will be delighted to know that NieR Re[in]carnation, the latest title in the franchise designed for mobile, will officially launch on July 28th. Pre-registration for Square Enix and Applibot, Inc.’s popular action-command title is now open for iOS and Android devices, currently already surpassing over 400,000 registrations.

As the first mobile game for the franchise, NieR Re[in]carnation is run by creative director YOKO TARO, producer Yosuke Saito, and composer Keiichi Okabe from MONACA. It tells the mysterious tale of a girl who wakes up in an unknown place with towering skyscrapers looming over her, guided only by a creature called Mama (who looks like an adorable ghost costume a child would wear for Halloween). She is plagued by horrific nightmares every night, so she embarks on a journey to uncover the truth of the vast world around her, seemingly on a quest to atone for past sins and recover something she has lost. “All prayers lead to The Cage”, as they say.
