NieR is doing gangbusters for Square Enix, and they’re investing in the IP in more ways than one. Earlier this year, they launched NieR Re[in]carnation for Android and iOS devices in Japan, confirming that the game would eventually come to the West as well. This was followed by a confirmation at E3 earlier this month that pre-registrations for the mobile action RPG’s western launch were open.
Now, a specific release date has been confirmed as well. Square Enix and developer Applibot have announced that NieR Re[in]carnation is going to launch for iOS and Android in the West on July 28. On top of reiterating that pre-registrations for it are open, they also reveal that over 400,000 players have already registered for the game- so clearly, there’s plenty of interest where fans are concerned.
NieR Re[in]carnation had already been downloaded by over 10 million people in Japan within a couple of months of its launch, so if that is any indication, the game is primed to enjoy great success in other markets as well.
