NieR's popularity within the gaming community has risen over the past few years due to the release of the highly successful NieR: Automata (first on PlayStation 4 and eventually on Xbox One).
As the franchise is set to commemorate its 10th Anniversary, new details around NieR Reincarnation have surfaced, including gameplay and official artwork.
The 13-minute video uploaded by YouTube user Point Rian shows a bit of the exploration in the game, as we control a possibly brand new character trough a series of locations leading up to a combat sequence. Character actions appear to be automatic, however, players can use different skills to aid them in combat once a specific bar is filled over time during battle.
That's not the only news we have regarding NieR Reincarnation, as official artwork made by industry veteran Akihiko Yoshida also surfaced online
Fans will be pleased to know some of the featured characters include 2B, 9S, and A2, among others. Check out a few of the 62 images below.

What is NieR Reincarnation?
Announced back in March, NieR Reincarnation is a mobile game developed by Applibot for iOS and Android currently initiating its closed beta in Japan. The story is being created by a team of writers under Yoko Taro's supervision.
As a mobile game, NieR Reincarnation will most likely feature gacha elements (a popular monetisation techniques within Japanese free-to-play titles) as it was hinted by producer Yosuke Saito during an interview with Famitsu, claiming players will "feel like there are even more main characters."
While the game is set for a 2020 release in Japan, no date for a launch outside the territory has been confirmed.
