Yoko Taro’s SINoALICE “Just Another Smartphone Clone”




The newest smartphone title to be unleashed by Square Enix has been none other than Yoko Taro’s (director of Nier: Automata) SINoALICE, a game that players will quickly discover to be similar to all the other mindless RPG clones that require little to no input – and are sure to be rife with wallet lightening micro-transactions.

A trailer revealing some of the game’s Fairy Tale based characters:

SINoALICE is available on iOS and Android now for those somehow not tired of generic RPG clones.

    Just think of the limitation of a smartphone and time line he is given. Develop a ff15 take almost 10 years.

    Do you want to wait for a game 10 years or a good title in 1 years.

    I think it is fine, grimoire was fun, it was just another smartphone game. bravely default is same as FFXGM it is fun too.

      I’d rather wait. It’s not like there is a lack of titles on the market or being released.

      It would be MUCH better to have titles being worked on properly instead of being released half-baked and shoddy like they are now.

      Gaming industry became an assembly line of unfinished titles and microtransactions. A change would be welcome.

    why blame Yoko taro? Blame Square Enix on this one, they’ve been focusing on cash-grabbing mobile game for a few years now.

    It’s cheap, easier to make, and people keep on throwing money at it if you have good art. Why would they care if its good or not if people still keep on throwing money at them?

      Yoko Taro would even say about the new characters things like “She is cute and should sell well”, and when criticized by doing it, he says he is not getting any direct money from any sales.

      Squenix is just trying to abuse his name because they got another famous director.

    does this surprise anyone? he may have a lot of games under his belt, but besides nier automata, theyve been sleeper hits. he was also pretty much unemployed after dragengard 3 which came out in 2013.

    sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to pay the bills.

      in note, he may be the director of the game, but he is not the owner, which means that while he was paid for the idea and creation, all extra income goes directly to the game maintainers and publisher, nothing should go to Yoko Taro himself
