Square Enix revealed the new details in its Reincarnation livestream, where director Daichi Matsukawa explained some of the game’s key features and differences from the Japanese version. One of the surprise reveals of the live stream was the inclusion of 2P. Originally a color variation of 2B, she was also included in a NieR FFXIV collaboration. Matsukawa revealed that the studio was able to get the go-ahead from Yoko Taro “just two days ago” to include her in Reincarnation.
Among other reveals, Matsukawa stated that the international version of the game is “practically the same” as the Japanese version, aside from additional voice acting options. However, the director also noted that the international release will include exclusive campaigns that are not available in Japan. Thanks to player feedback, the international launch of Nier Reincarnation will also include quality of life improvements such as the gacha pity roll system.
NieR Reincarnation will launch worldwide on July 28, 2021 for iOS and Android devices.
