In commemoration of the 12th anniversary of the NieR series, the official NieR Reincarnation Twitter account posted a piece of celebratory artwork. The art features the three main characters from NieR, NieR Automata, and NieR Reincarnation, who are Nier, 2B, and the Girl of Light.

The three protagonists appear to be jumping in the air while the Cage is underneath them. Nier as he appears in the picture is Brother Nier, who was the protagonist of the remake version of the game, as well as NieR Replicant. When it originally released, Japan had NieR Replicant and NieR Gestalt, while only the Gestalt version appeared outside Japan. Nier was Yonah’s father and was an older man in Gestalt, whereas in Replicant Nier is Yonah’s brother and a young man.

There is other news that the Japanese NieR Reincarnation account is celebrating outside of the 12th anniversary. A new story chapter, “Sun and the Moon,” launched, and players logging in will be able to obtain prizes such as gems and tickets. “Sun and the Moon” follows Hina Akagi and Yuzuki Kurezome on their journey through the Cage. Kouki Uchiyama (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn) voices Kurezome, and Kana Ichinose (Tsukihime) voices Hina.

NieR Reincarnation is available worldwide on iOS and Android devices.
