The official NieR Reincarnation Twitter has shared a piece of concept art detailing one of the new characters that will be part of the NieR universe. While little information was shared outside of a few design notes and a name, the Wandering Boy will be one of the new faces fans will meet in the upcoming mobile title. Additionally, the official NieR Reincarnation Twitter did share who would be voicing the Wandering Boy. Junko Minagawa (Ryoma Echizen from Prince of Tennis) will be voicing this new character.

Some of the designs seem to call back to certain imagery and patterns in NieR: Automata. However, little information has been revealed about the overall scenario in NieR Reincarnation.

There was a closed beta test exclusive to Japanese audiences back in July, which allowed NieR fans to get their first taste of this mobile title. Additionally, the development team behind NieR Reincarnation released a survey sharing what players enjoyed most about the beta, and areas where they thought the team could improve. The survey details how players felt about the scenario, character designs, combat, and other gameplay systems in Reincarnation.

NieR Reincarnation is in development for Apple iOS and Android.
