Today Square Enix announced a new game titled SINoALICE, with NieR: Automata Director Yoko Taro at the helm as Creative Director.

The game will be released in Japan this spring, with the usual free to play model with optional in-game purchases. The platforms are, you probably guessed, iOS and Android.

Pre-registration is already open at the newly-launched official website.

Development is handled by Pokelabo, a well known Japanese developer of social games like Sword of Phantasia, Devil Maker Tokyo and The Samurai Kingdom.

A teaser trailer was also released, showing cute protagonists and promising an “unique and dense world” and an original story written by Yoko Taro himself.

The game’s tagline is definitely very “Yoko Taro-like,” as it reads “Sore wa saiaku no monogatari,” which translates as “this is the worst story.”

The possibility of a mobile game by Yoko Taro was pretty much teased almost a year ago via a Square Enix Members survey hosted in Japan, and this is probably the result of that.

You can check  the trailer out below, while we wait for more information.
