The World Ends With You Sequel Announced For Summer 2021
Square Enix dropped a new trailer today revealing Neo: The World Ends With You, a sequel to the original 2007 Nintendo DS hit. In the trailer above, you can see a new cast of characters fighting monsters in and exploring the residential and financial districts of a full 3D city. The original game followed Neku Sakuraba, a reserved and cold hero. Alongside a colorful group of characters, Neku was tasked with surviving the Reaper’s game – a competition for the recently deceased that could potentially return its competitors to life or erase their existence completely. Neo: The World Ends With You stars Rindo who, like Neku, must overcome the trials of the Reaper’s game.
Additionally, Square Enix announced that The World Ends With You’s anime adaptation is dropping in April 2021. While the anime was originally announced back in June, you can see some new trailer footage above. Neo: The World Ends With You launches for PlayStation 4 and Switch during Summer 2021.
