Sequel to the celebrated original work of Nintendo DS, published in 2007 (also later on mobile devices and on Nintendo Switch in 2018), we find ourselves in a Shibuya, Tokyo, quite changed and renewed compared to the original game. This sequel, which takes place three years after the original game, will put us in the shoes of Rindo, who must explore the heart of Tokyo to learn the secrets of the sinister Game of Reapers. A real battle for survival where our protagonist will be forced to participate.
NEO: The World Ends with You will combine a colorful anime style with game mechanics based on real-time action. This time the perspective of the camera is different from that of the title a few years ago; mainly because the original was in two dimensions. It will not be short of production values, precisely. We will have a soundtrack composed by Takeharu Ishimoto (THRILL Inc.) and a story that they promise will live up to it. It will be possible to explore the streets of the city, defeat monsters with the help of allies and complete missions while learning the mysteries of the Game of Reapers.
