One of the most anticipated games to come out for smartphone devices was NieR Re[in]carnation. It’s a role-playing game developed by Square Enix and published by Komoe Game. It’s a game that’s set in the same universe as that of NieR and the sequel NieR: Automata. Though there are connections to the other games, players don’t need to play the first two to understand this game. Unfortunately, though, this game wasn’t available in Southeast Asia when it first launched. But that all changed, as the game is finally available to the region.
Players living in Southeast Asia can finally start playing the awesome RPG and experience the world only known as “The Cage”. But with a different story, this time compared to the first two games. The game also launched with a crossover reward, which is a nice addition to its gameplay. Let’s discuss in more detail the development, as well as some tips for starting the game properly.
NieR Reincarnation Available in Southeast Asia
Komoe Game finally made NieR Reincarnation available in the Southeast Asia region. The game was officially launched in the region on July 14, 2022, but NieR Reincarnation pre-registration was opened on June 9. It’s the first mobile entry in the NieR series, which is why it was one of the most highly anticipated games since 2021. So, it was a huge disappointment for the game’s fans when Southeast Asia wasn’t included when the game officially launched in February 2021.
Though it was more than a year’s wait, the game is finally here. Allowing fans to enjoy this exciting RPG. To further hype up the game’s launch in the region, a crossover event also began on the same date as the launch.
The NieR: Automata Crossover Event
The event is the NieR: Automata Crossover, which allows players to get characters, weapons, and items from the NieR: Automata game. This is great news for Southeast Asian players, especially those who were fans of NieR: Automata. They get to begin their new journey into The Cage with exclusive items and weapons. Just logging on to the game will give you a free crossover weapon, Emil Head, which is a combat bracer weapon.
Aside from the Emil Head, another exclusive weapon you can acquire is the Virtuous Treaty. Players will also have the chance to acquire 4-star crossover costumes for 2B/Divergent Battler, 9S/Divergent Scanner, and A2/Divergent Attacker. These are part of the prize pool, so make sure you participate and complete tasks to acquire these exclusive prizes. Crossover costumes for Fio/Mechanical Girl and Rion/Mechanical Exile are also available.
Other Rewards for Pre-Registering
If you’re one of those who were able to pre-register before the game launched, you also get to claim rewards when you play NieR Reincarnation. After the server has launched, just log in every day for 6 days and get 500 gems per day or up to 3,000 gems. Completing the prologue of the event will also net you 4,500 gems, which is equivalent to 15 summons, as well as 3 Premium Summon Tickets, and other materials.
This gives players a good starting point in their gaming journey in NieR Reincarnation. But like with any role-playing game available, it’s not uncommon to make mistakes here and there in the beginning. To help you with that, we’ll provide some tips and the heroes you’d want to have in the beginning to help you progress easier.
Beginner Tips To Playing NieR Reincarnation
Like with any role-playing game, you’d want to have a good start with NieR Reincarnation and that will usually happen with good starting heroes. You’ll have a chance to acquire good heroes, in the beginning, using the materials you’ll get. For the heroes, the ones you would want to start with would include Gayle (Bloody Hunter and Abstract Hunter), Rion Abstract Exile, Levania Abstract Monster, Dimos (Bloody Gunman and Abstract Gunman), Lars Abstract Soldier, 063y Abstract Prisoner, and Griff (Lacrima Captain and Abstract Captain).
The important thing about your starting heroes is that you need to have a good DPS. They’ll be the ones that will carry in the early parts of the game, so having them will be handy. If you’re not happy with your pull, you can do a reroll. However, it seems that this feature is only possible on the global server, so if you’re playing on that server then go ahead.
But if you’re playing on the SE Asia server, then rerolling is not possible yet. That’s okay, though. Even if you don’t get any of the heroes mentioned above, as long as you have a good DPS, you’re good to go. Also, don’t forget to use your leveling materials so you can get more mission-clear rewards, which will result in more gems. With more gems, you can do more summons. Thus, increasing your chances of getting good heroes to start your NieR Reincarnation journey.
So, remember–get heroes with good DPS, and clear missions to get in-game rewards; these are some of the best tips to start your RPG grind with a bang. Use these tips to help you get ahead in your gameplay!
