Square Enix and Yoko Taro announce SINoALICE for smartphones

Spring 2017-due title developed by Pocket Laboratory.


Square Enix has announced SINoAlice, a new title for iOS and Android from writer and creative director Yoko Taro, known for the NieR and Drakengard series, and developer Pocket Laboratory. It will launch in Japan in spring 2017.

Yoko Taro is developing a “unique and rich world” with an original story for SINoALICE. Here is the text featured in the debut trailer:

Do you remember? That story read to you when you were little. A story of a beautiful princess and strong hero.

But we’re ignorant. Even now, the girls still wander about.

This is the “Library,” the imprisoned world, a place bound by the story’s never-ending cycle.

Gathered are the characters of the story. These girls only have one wish. To resurrect the “author.”

For each darkness held by these characters, each has a desired future.

What kind of story is the conclusion of the girls that wish for the resurrection of the creator…?
