Square Enix has announced that the long-awaited follow-up to the classic JRPG The World Ends with You, NEO: The World Ends with You, will finally be launching this July for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC.
The World Ends with You launched way back in 2007 to massive critical acclaim. It utilised the Nintendo DS dual screens in an innovative way and won over the hearts of many JRPG fans. It went on to receive a much-loved port on the Nintendo Switch, as well as mobile devices. Now, the nearly 14-year-old game will receive a sequel in the form of NEO: The World Ends with You. A new trailer that debuted yesterday ran over certain features present in the sequel, including characters, the equipment system, the action battle system, and more. Check it out below.
