Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers writer Natsuko Ishikawa is also handling the crossover’s story and the trailer includes a fight with the crab-like enemy Hades. The end of the trailer briefly shows Emet-Selch, the antagonist of Shadowbringers, but it’s unclear how he’ll be implemented into the crossover.
Back in 2019, Final Fantasy XIV got its own crossover with the Nier series with YorHa: Dark Apocalypse.
Nier Reincarnation is currently available worldwide on Android and iOS. Final Fantasy XIV is available on PS4, PS5, and PC.
