Square Enix continues to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Nier series, and its latest video gives us our first look at gameplay for the mobile Nier: Reincarnation. In keeping with Yoko Taro’s original vision, the first Nier mobile game looks to retain all of its depressive and sullen tone.
The short gameplay teaser features only basic movement, with a young woman moving through a series of ruins with a companion behind her. This companion is wearing a sheet like a ghost Halloween costume, but it’s pretty clearly a pod sidekick like we saw in Nier: Automata.
The camera angle takes several cinematic turns as the trailer continues, and a soft voice begins singing. The atmospheric vocals evoke Nier series composer Keiiche Okabe’s best work, and as the series’ fans know, its music is key to delivering emotional moments in the story.
