In a significant announcement, Square Enix has revealed that NieR Reincarnation, developed by Applibot (same as FF7EC), will cease its services on April 30, 2024, following the release of its final story chapter.

This EoS marks the end of another chapter for Square Enix, known for its influential role in the gaming industry.

While Square Enix hasn't explicitly stated the reasons behind the game's closure, it's speculated that declining popularity may have influenced the decision. NieR Reincarnation was barely making any revenue the past few months.

Key Details of the Shutdown

  • Final Closure Date: The game will officially shut down on April 29th, 10 PM Pacific.
  • Last Chapter Release: The concluding chapter of 'The People and the World' arc is set for release on March 28th.
  • Story Arc Finale: This final arc involves characters from previous stories uniting to defend the Cage, culminating in the third act titled 'Transmigration', launching at 6 PM Pacific on March 28th.

A Glimpse into NieR Reincarnation

In-Game Combat NieR Reincarnation

NieR Reincarnation is a free-to-play mobile RPG set within the NieR universe.

The game is known for its narrative depth, featuring multiple story arcs with unique character sets, which converge in the final chapter.

Launched in Japan in February 2021 and later in the West, the game featured crossovers with popular titles like Final Fantasy XIV, Persona 5 Royal (deadly collab), and Dragon Quest.

Countdown to the End

NieR Reincarnation remains available on Android and iOS platforms until its final shutdown date.

Square Enix plans to host a variety of Record and Variation event quests leading up to the shutdown.

Additionally, the game will continue to receive new characters and content until its closure.

The game's final chapter is not just an ending but a celebration of its journey. Special campaigns and reward adjustments are in place to mark the conclusion of NieR Reincarnation.

Square Enix's Recent Shutdowns

This announcement isn't isolated; Square Enix has recently been streamlining its portfolio.

Notable shutdowns include Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, Dragon Quest Tact, and Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile.

With the NieR shutdown, we expect the tandem Square Enix - Applibot to fully focus on Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis as their main mobile game going forward.
