Nier Reincarnation, the upcoming mobile spin-off that will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original Nier, has shown off combat in a new video. It looks very different from the action style of Nier: Automata.
The trailer is below, but we’ve also grabbed a screenshot from it showing combat to analyse further.
The combat looks like it could be turn-based, with large touch icons being assigned to each character. Based on the screenshot below, it looks like characters on your team of three will have two abilities assigned to them. The footage shows one member of the player team landing blows with ease, so don’t expect any traditional action combat with dodging and blocking.
It also looks like combat will be wave-based, which is an interesting twist. In the screenshot above, it also seems that two characters are heavy hitters, while the other is primarily a healer.
