Square Enix has revealed a new game in The World Ends With You franchise, titled NEO: The World Ends With You, scheduled to launch in Summer 2021 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
NEO: The World Ends With You is a 3D action-RPG title, and its official description notes that players will be stepping into the shoes of ‘Rindo’ this time around, as they “unravel the mysteries of the deadly Reaper’s Game” in a stylized Shibuya.
You can check out a trailer for the game below, and an official website for the new game has also been launched.
This is the first true 3D game in the series following the 2007 original, which was ported to modern consoles in 2018. As well as exploring the sights of Shibuya, players will “fight monsters alongside their ally companions in fast-paced action battles, and complete missions as they seek to change the fate they’ve been handed.”
The trailer introduces a number of new characters including a high-school friend of Rindo’s called Fret and a college student peer called Nagi. There’s also a mysterious hooded fellow, who looks ripped right out of Kingdom Hearts, called Minamimoto.
