I don’t fully know what to expect from NieR Reincarnation, and I’m fine keeping it that way – but I have wondered about the current state of the western release. In a letter shared on Twitter, I got my answer: the iOS and Android game is still coming to North America and Europe, it’s just been quiet lately.

In the message, game director Daichi Matsukawa apologized for a “lack of updates” about NieR Reincarnation. When the time is right, there will be news on the preregistration and launch timing.
He noted that the team is “currently in the process of localizing the English version and recording all character voices in English,” and that they’re planning to address bugs from the Japanese launch.
In terms of a potential timeline, Japan is getting NieR Reincarnation on February 18, so I hope you weren’t counting on a simultaneous launch (or planning to dig into this mobile game anytime soon). I’m expecting to play through all of NieR Replicant beforehand given that it’s still on target for April 23.
I’ve avoided gacha for most of my life, but when NieR music is in the picture, I can’t turn away.
