Square Enix and Yoko Taro Announce SINoAlice
New mobile game expected in the spring.
It appears that more companies are putting their best foot forward in terms of mobile gaming. I’m not saying that the developers and companies weren’t putting the mobile audience’s best interest in mind in the past. However, in terms of mobile gaming in the past, it was mostly hit or miss. Fast-forward to the present and everyone is making decent mobile games.
Keep an eye out in the spring for a new one from Square Enix and creative director Yoko Taro. Fans of Nier and Drakengard will be familiar with Taro’s work. The new work from this collaboration is called SINoAlice.
Not much is revealed on the web site for the game, since it’s the Japanese version but you can see the trailer. It doesn’t bring too much info to the table for the game and doesn’t show gameplay. It would appear that one of the storylines for the game is trying to bring back that author of the Library, the imprisoned world. Who knows what players will have to do to achieve that goal? The site also gives players the option to pre-register for the game and will receive an in-game bonus based on the number of pre-registrations. (Translations of site and trailer via Gematsu)
