NieR Reincarnation market West players mobile developments
“For Western gamers to embrace [mobile gaming], I think it’s important that we develop games of the same quality as console games, while at the same time harnessing the power of mobile gaming by implementing frequent updates. This is not a NieR that can be played casually, but one that will keep evolving day after day, ”says Daichi Matsukawa, project manager.
The team is clear that the strength of the brand will drive that mass that wants to try it, but they recognize that our market does not fully understand those games developed with a smartphone in mind.
