SINoALICE is about to go global as pre-registration for its western release is well underway. The game is directed by Yoko Taro, the mind behind NieR; Automata. Pre-registration will run starting today, May 9th, up until official launch.
SINoALICE is actually a game developed by PokeLabo and published by Square Enix. The game was first released in Japan back in 2017 and in Hong Kong and Taiwan a year later. For the Global market, however, Nexon will handle the publishing, instead of Square Enix. We’ve yet to explore the Japanese version of the game but we are getting real-time battles, an energy system (AP), questing, guilds, guild battles, co-op missions, character jobs, and more.
Basically the whole common formula for a mobile RPG. The heroes, interestingly, are fairy-tale based characters such as Snow White, Alice, Red Riding Hood, and the like. Of course, these aren’t our normal princesses as they are transformed into bad-ass fantasy characters. The game also makes use of the infamous Gacha system, where players draw from a pool characters, weapons, items, and whatnot. In this case, what players will be pulling for are weapons and nightmares.
As always, players who join in on the pre-registration will receive rewards upon launch day. Nexon has divided these gifts depending on how many players pre-register:
- 4,444 Players — 100 Magic Jewels (premium currency).
- 44,444 Players — Limited Edition Job for Sleeping Beauty (Sorcerer) and an SS Weapon (Grimoire type), Sealed Dragon Puppet.
- 444,444 Players — 200 Magic Jewels.
- 500,000 Players — an SS Nightmare (Fina, the Loyal Falsehood) and 5x Upgrade Sword (IV).
