Nier Reincarnation is the first mobile JRPG game title that has become one of the most successful game series from Square Enix, now it will finally be released for Western countries today. However, according to producer Yosuke Saito, the Japanese publisher didn’t expect huge numbers for a Western release.
“To be honest, we didn’t expect too much from the mobile game market in the West. We just hope that for those who are interested in the game, it will serve as a great opportunity to get to know Nier.”Saito said to IGN.
According to Saito, Nier Reincarnation was developed with the same mindset as console games, and Saito believes that the appeal of this series will be attractive to western players who try it. Director Daichi Matsukawa said that he believes games developed for smartphone devices are not always fully favored in the West.
“In order for Western players to accept mobile games, I think it’s important for us to develop games of the same quality as console games, while at the same time harnessing the power of mobile games by implementing frequent updates. It’s not just Nier that can be played casually, but it’s growing day by day.”Matsukawa said.
Because of this, the various worlds of Nier are linked together in this title, series creator Yoko Taro says: “It’s about making Square Enix make money through gacha”, referring to the popular microtransaction mechanic in mobile games JRP.
Although Yoko’s comment could be considered a joke, this mobile game does come with a gacha mechanic. However, in previous interviews, the creator of Nier has mentioned that he believes this mobile game is so well made that players won’t even notice that it’s a mobile game.
It won’t be long before we can see if Nier Reincarnation is truly a console-quality mobile game or not, as it will be available on iOS and Android today for Western countries.
