Drakengard and Nier director Yoko Taro's new game is finally out. No, the next Nier hasn't had a surprise launch, but the fantasy mobile RPG SinoAlice is available on mobile. Combining Taro's dark world-building with classic fantasy characters, SinoAlice arrives worldwide after releasing three years ago in Japan.

SinoAlice is playable solo or cooperatively and features hundreds of different weapons and characters, including Alice from Lewis Carroll's classic stories as well as Red Riding Hood and even Princess Kaguya. The role-playing game uses an intense combat system and is backed with music from frequent Taro collaborator Keiichi Okabe, who also did the music for both Nier and Nier: Automata.

Prior to release, more than two million players pre-registered for SinoAlice across Google Play and the App Store. Those who pre-registered get several rewards, including special weapons, currency, and upgrade items. There are also daily login rewards that will be distributed for the first 10 days after launch.

Taro is currently involved with the mobile game Nier: Reincarnation, which was first teased earlier this year. An enhanced remaster of the original Nier is also in the works for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and keeping with the weirdness the series is known for, it's called Nier Replicant Ver. 1.22474487139. No word has been given yet on an official third Nier game, but given the success of Automata, it's likely more a question of "when" rather than "if."
