About NieR Re[in]carnation
NieR Re[in]carnation is considered a dedicated project of the developer for fans of this game series. Despite being a franchise of the NieR series, NieR Re[in]carnation introduces completely unique gameplay compared to the rest. Immediately after the first impressions of the gameplay were revealed, many fans were disappointed. They had expected that NieR Re[in]carnation would deliver frenetic hack-and-slash gameplay like what was available on NieR: Automata.
Despite receiving mixed reviews, we think this is still a good game that you should try. Square Enix has created a signature-style Gacha game with unique graphics and exciting gameplay. After being released exclusively in Japan, NieR Re[in]carnation is now available globally in English.
The story in NieR Re[in]carnation has no connection with other games in the series. It is set in a fantasy world called “The Cage”. This area contains a series of towers and dungeons filled with traps and enemies. The player assumes the role of the main character, Fio, a girl who appeared out of nowhere just woken up on a stone. Fio has no voice and no memory or understanding of the world in which she exists. Fortunately, a strange creature named Mama came to help. In order to retrieve the fragments of memories that are scattered everywhere in “The Cage”, Fio and Mama set off on their adventure together. Will Fio regain her memories and reawaken the fragments of a forgotten world? You will find the answer in NieR Re[in]carnation.
As we mentioned, NieR Re[in]carnation has a unique gameplay compared to the rest of the series. The developer did not rely on successful gameplay elements of NieR: Automata to develop Re[in]carnation because of the huge difference in platforms and environments. Re[in]carnation’s gameplay turns to a new direction that seems lighter and more interesting.
You control the main character, Fio, to adventure through the different lands of The Cage. The environment changes based on the areas you set foot in. They flexibly switch between 2D and 3D. You can notice the gameplay of the game is divided into 3 main categories: Explore the 3D environment, learn the story missions and fight.
It’s basically like a JRPG game. You must assemble a team with 3 members to fight in the environment. Battles can be done manually or automatically if you like. Your team and your opponent line up in parallel on the screen. The characters use weapons and skills to attack opponents. You can control your characters to activate skills at the appropriate time.
The core of the games is to develop the characters of your team. There are hundreds of different areas in the game. They bring challenges with increasing levels. Your characters must be enhanced with stats and weapons to be strong enough when fighting enemies.
Unlock iconic characters
If you used to love 2B and 9S in NieR Automata, you will have a chance to meet them again in this game. Besides the main character Fio, NieR Re[in]carnation has about 20 other names such as Gayle, A2, Rion, Lars, Argo, etc. Each character is characterized by stats and skills.
Note that there are some special characters like 2B and 9S that cannot be unlocked in the normal way. They are event characters so they are only available for a limited time. To collect these event characters, you need to use the Gacha system. It seems to be the same traditional way as other RPG games.
Upgrading the characters
Each character in NieR Re[in]carnation is characterized by stats and skills. They can be increased each time you perform an upgrade. There are 4 important factors to increase the strength of your character, including Enhancement, Skills, Leveling up, and Equipment. You can find these options from the menu.
New skills are unlocked as your character reaches the required levels. To enhance equipment or upgrade characters, you need the right materials. They can be found in dungeons or as a victory reward after each battle.
Equipment and support
The equipment is also divided into different groups based on their characteristics. Each character can equip up to 3 weapons including 1 main weapon and 1 secondary weapon. In addition, players can activate Memoirs and Companions for each character.
Each character has high compatibility with a unique weapon. When the character uses a compatible weapon, it can increase the power and skill to the maximum. Characters can also use incompatible weapons, but it usually doesn’t work well in battle.
Companion is a trusted friend in battle. Each Companion is equipped with two unique skills that can be quickly activated once in battle. Companion creates effects and spells that increase your chances of winning.
Besides the story mode, players can participate in the Arena system, also known as the PVP mode. This is a separate mode for players with an Internet connection. In the arena, you can use your team to fight other players’ teams. Winning PvP matches offers upgrade rewards and experience points.
Basically, the Arena mode is where players show off their team management skills. When you have the right supporting characters in a reasonable competition strategy, you can easily defeat your opponent. Always pay attention to the stats of a character because they can complement other characters.
NieR Re [in] carnation has the main story revolving around recovering fragments of protagonist Fio’s memories. However, it is not all. By adventuring through lands and meeting new characters, you unlock other side stories. The special thing is that the stories are always connected in some way.
