NEO: The World Ends with You, Square Enix’s sequel to the 2007 classic on the Nintendo DS, has been out for a few weeks now and garnered some positive critical acclaim. A new trailer has been released highlighting the same – check it out below or read our official review here.
Players once again return to Shibuya Underground, a Purgatory-esque world where they must compete in the Reapers’ Game or risk being erased. Rindo is the protagonist this time around, joined by his buddy Fret, Sho Minamimoto from the previous game and the moody Nagi. As the Wicked Twisters, they must battle it out against other teams and emerge on top.
Along with fully 3D exploration, the combat system has been overhauled, focusing more on comboing attacks to build up Groove and unleash Mashups for extra damage. Other new features including powerful Psychs for traveling through time or diving into people’s minds along with the Social Network to keep track of all the various NPCs (and net rewards for completing tasks).
NEO: The World Ends with You is out now for PS4 and PC with the PC version releasing this Summer on the Epic Games Store. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
