Square Enix developed and published the gacha RPG NieR: Reincarnation is finally finding its way to Southeast Asian audiences after more than a year of release pretty much everywhere else. The mobile adaptation of the popular JRPG series NieR has achieved great success with its unique story, art style and memorable character designs, having maintained quite a decent following both globally and in its home country. Japan.
While I can’t speak for everyone, I think it’s safe to say that there was a good disappointment when Reincarnation’s worldwide release completely ignored the Southeast Asia region, especially considering how the NieR series is now loved around the world after NieR: Automata was such a massive success. So seeing the reincarnation finally hit this region after keeping them waiting for so long is very nice, although it potentially comes with a caveat.
It’s not safe to assume just yet, but it’s a fact that this version of Reincarnation will be released by a non-Square Enix company; Komoe games. Komoe has released several very popular titles for SEA such as Uma Musume, SINoALICE and Figure Fantasy. The reason this could potentially throw a wrench in Reincarnation is only because it’s possible it could mean that this version of the game might end up not receiving the exact same content as its global counterpart so they may have some patches behind everyone else. But that’s pure speculation, so take it with a grain of salt.
For those unaware, NieR: Reincarnation is the mobile sister title to both NieR and NieR: Automata games, both console and PC titles. This series is known for its deep storytelling and wonderful characters, and Reincarnation embraces both of those qualities as well, so there’s plenty to be excited about the release of SEA. If you’re looking to put that excitement somewhere, you can pre-register for the game now on the App Store and Google Play. Currently, there’s no solid release date or window, so we’ll have to wait for more information later this year.
