What do we know about NEO: The World Ends with You?
NEO: The World Ends with You will hit stores for PS4 and Nintendo Switch on July 27; later also on PC. This installment will bring us back to the Shibuya neighborhood in a Tokyo very similar to the aesthetic level of the original video game, but now many things have changed; the main one, a structure of movement in three-dimensional environments with greater range of movement and action.
The protagonist of this occasion will be Rindo, a young aspiring to return to the world of the living. The story takes place three years after the events of the original 2007 work for the Nintendo DS (also available on Nintendo Switch with a remastering).
