Besides an anime project, Square Enix has also revealed an upcoming game for the The World Ends With You franchise. Its title is NEO: The World Ends With You, and it will be a direct sequel to the first game. There is also a new trailer for the video game:
The game will be available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, and the story is described as:
Explore a stylized recreation of Shibuya, as you take on the role of Rindo to battle for survival and unravel the mysteries of the deadly “Reaper’s Game” in this new action RPG for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
The official website also lists the date for the premiere to be Summer 2021. Considering that the anime will air in April, it seems like the fans might have a lot of content to enjoy from the franchise soon. In case you’re not a fan and wondering what it’s all about, the original game released almost 14 years ago in Japan. The story for it goes:
Neku awakens in the middle of Shibuya’s bustling Scramble Crossing with no memory of how he got there. Little does he know he’s been transported to an alternate plane of existence known as the Underground (UG). Now an unwilling participant in the mysterious “Reapers’ Game,” Neku must partner up with a girl named Shiki in order to survive. Together, they complete missions and defeat monsters known as “Noise” as they gradually uncover the true nature of this twisted game.
“There’s only one way to stay alive in Shibuya: trust your partner.”
Will they survive the Reapers’ Game?
Looking forward to the anime, and hopefully the The World Ends With You game also delivers a satisfying sequel.
