As we had previously reported, NieR Re[in]carnation had a closed beta test run not too long ago. A user who managed to get in has uploaded a rather lengthy video of its gameplay which you will be able to watch below:
To reiterate, we’ve already seen the whole exploration and running segments in NieR Re[in]carnation, and now, we get to see what looks like some form of battle system, maybe turn-based, maybe real time. Each character shown appears to have two skills, and what we can assume will have different classes, battling strange creatures in waves.
Looking closer, the skills do have their cooldowns, indicated by the border around the skill. There will be an auto battle function, and faster battle speed. The right most button may be a summon, but it wasn’t shown off in this video. The left most side indicates the creatures on the field, their HP dropping as you attack them.
The exploration isn’t limited to the main girl either, showing other characters walking across a 2D plane instead of the 3D shown off so far. These are probably the story sections for the characters in between the fights. There might be two parts to the game: the battle and 2D story segments, and the 3D exploration with the other girl.
