Neo: The World Ends With You Brings New Reapers’ Game to Switch and PS4 Summer 2021

The clock is ticking…



Fans have been longing for a sequel to SquareEnix’s The World Ends With You for over a decade now, with the developer hinting at an eventual second game with each TWEWY re-release. It seems as though the time to finally pull back the curtain has come, however, as SquareEnix has officially announced that Neo: The World Ends With You will be coming to a console near you next year.

Neo: The World Ends With You once again takes players to the ever-changing Shibuya as they take control of Rindo in order to help him survive the latest iteration of the “Reapers’ Game,” a literal life-or-death battle for survival. As they fight to stay alive, players will also be able to enjoy the city like never before thanks to a highly detailed 3D environment, combined with the unique art and music that the series has prided itself on so far. If you’re interested in getting a closer look at the game for yourself, you can check out the trailer below.


Neo: The World Ends With You will be releasing on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in Summer 2021. As a long-standing TWEWY fan I’m pretty psyched, but what about you? How do you think the trailer compares to the original TWEWY? How do you think the post-game events of The World Ends With You: Final Remix will play into this game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
