SINoALICE's latest update has now arrived, adding several fan-favourite characters from popular RPG series NieR. Young Nier, Kaine, and Young Emil are available in-game as part of a limited-time crossover event set to run until August 20th.
All you have to do to net yourself Young Nier as a gift is log in during the event. The character will then appear in your present box once you've completed the tutorial.
You can also expect to see an original scenario that's said to have NieR series creator – and SINoALICE Creative Director – Yoko Taro's seal of approval. By progressing through the story event, you'll earn tickets that can be used within the Shooting Gallery. This is where you can earn special event armour and other items.
Prior to the game's release, I interviewed Yoko Taro for our sister site Pocket Gamer. As you might expect, it wasn't exactly a standard interview, with Taro giving plenty of fun, and surprisingly frank, responses. Here's a handy link.
