The World Begins Again
As a gigantic fan of the original The World Ends With You, today’s news has me incredibly excited. NEO: The World Ends With You not only has a wonderful new trailer to share with fans, but also officially has a launch date! It’s coming out this July 27th for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. It’s also been confirmed that the sequel is coming to PC as well via Epic Games. Oh and if you’re a collector, today you can also pre-order physical versions of the PS4 and Switch editions.
If you’re somehow one of those people that still hasn’t played the original The World Ends With You, you might wanna read the blurb about NEO: The World Ends With You below.
The long-awaited follow-up to the RPG classic The World Ends with You follows protagonist, Rindo, as he explores the heart of Tokyo to uncover the mysteries behind the sinister “Reapers’ Game,” a life-or-death battle for survival in which he has been forced to take part. A new trailer, that debuted today, offers an introduction to a new cast of characters, a vibrant and fashionable equipment system, the game’s hyper-stylish action battle system, and much more.
NEO: The World Ends with You combines a striking, anime-style Shibuya with fast-paced gameplay, an amped-up soundtrack from composer Takeharu Ishimoto (THRILL Inc.), and an intriguing story to create an unforgettable experience. Players can explore and enjoy the sights, sounds, and culture of this bustling city, fight monsters alongside their allies in flashy battles, and complete missions as they learn more about the “Reapers’ Game” and fight to change the fate they’ve been handed.
I personally think NEO: The World Ends With You has the potential to be an incredible game. Though it looks to play somewhat differently from the first game, it obviously still has the heart and soul of the series. Best of all, the trailer below showcases many of the new faces coming to the sequel, including some very familiar faces. Be sure to check that out, and stay tuned to HPP for more news from SQUARE ENIX about amazing RPGs!
