SinoAlice was launched in Japan in 2017. The mobile game arrived in the west this week, with simultaneous release on Android and iOS.
In this collaboration between Pokelabo and Square Enix, the player will participate in an adventure with many “waifus” and incredible arts. But be careful! They must kill to survive! The game is an online RPG with “gacha” and “dungeon crawler” elements.
SinoAlice is from the same creator of Nier Automata, Yoko Taro.
There are three modes: Story Mode, Event Mode and Co-Op Mode. The story revolves around navigating through the “chapters” of a library where you will experience the stories of other characters. The story presents itself slowly, and takes advantage of this element to “push” us a lot of female characters.
The game is inspired by popular characters from fairy tales. Transforms each character into an "anime girl". Despite the cute look, the game's story is very heavy and dark.https://youtu.be/P3XtW63U3So
Initially, SinoAlice had no plans to release outside of Japan. But by following the game's data log, the developers discovered that many players were actually from other countries and were using VPN to be able to play.
Even though it looks like just another “gacha”, SineAlice is trying hard to be different.According to Taro, the game corrects one of the main flaws of games of this genre: it has an ending. "A lot of mobile games didn't have an ending, so I started writing an ending." "But since the game was successful, the story isn't over yet, so I feel a little frustrated," Taro added.
