NieR Re[in]carnation is a role-playing video game set in a realm called The Cage. The player navigates different areas of the Cage in the company of ghost-like companions, entering statues called Scarecrows and reliving memories which play out as storybook-like narratives.
The gameplay is split into three types. The first is the current protagonist exploring different areas of the Cage with their companion. During this exploration, they come across Scarecrows which grant and upgrade weapons used to fight enemies within unlocked memories. In these memories, dubbed Weapon Stories, players experience the memories of those related to a weapon from a side-scrolling painting-like perspective, entering battles to correct errors in the memories. Battles play out in real-time inside the memories with a party of three characters against enemies, with special attacks utilized by tapping icons on-screen when they have charged. Battles can be performed manually or completed through an auto-battle function. While the storyline characters are present in-game from the outset, other character variations and weapons are obtained through a gacha mechanic. Storyline quests, when completed, unlock optional harder versions of their battles.
The second type of gameplay is the battle system, which is activated by finding Scarecrows. This provides the player with the chance to enter the memory world of the Scarecrow's host and battle monsters. The player's level is determined by their progress in the main game. If the player dies, then they will lose the progress that they made in that area of the game. The third type of gameplay is the Memory Remix aspect, where the player is able to go back to certain memories to alter the story.
