Yoko Taro Confirms NieR: Re[in]carnation Will Have Gacha Mechanics

The announcement was part of a video that also contained NieR: Re[in]carnation's first trailer.

During the Dengeki Famitsu Game Awards 2019, NieR Creative Director Yoko Taro provided a bit more information about the upcoming NieR mobile game, NieR Re[in]carnation. Among other things, he said NieR: Re[in]carnation will be a gacha game.

The news came via a video segment DualShockers translated, a video that also contained a brief trailer for the upcoming mobile spinoff.

How NieR: Re[in]carnation handles gacha remains unclear. Yoko Taro basically just said it’s a thing and moved on. What we do know is the game looks absolutely fantastic for a mobile title.

In fact, Yoko Taro said it will be so amazing in all respects, players won’t even realize it’s a mobile game.

The trailer shows the protagonist with a compatriot of some kind exploring some massive locations, with strategic wideshots, good use of lighting, and the trademark NieR sense of atmosphere.

There’s still no word on what we can actually expect from NieR: Re[in]carnation or when it will release. That’s not all the NieR goodness we can look forward to either, with NieR Replicant on the horizon as well.
