Square Enix just announced both: The game will arrive for Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch on July 27, and on PC through Epic Games later, but also in summer.
‘NEO: The World Ends with You’ will return players to Shibuya, Tokyo, as the new trailer for the game shows. In it you can see combat in real time and a renovation of space, although as in the original game we can move completely freely through closed environments. The argument returns us to the Reapers, but the protagonist will not be Nuku but Rindo, who intends to return to the world of the living.
The world ends with you in multiple ways
Aesthetically, and despite technical improvements, the game maintains the traits that made the pocket version famous, and remains mechanical like the thought scan. Takeharu Ishimoto’s iconic soundtrack and Tetsuya Nomura’s character design have also been preserved.
