The World Ends With You: Tomohiko Hirano reveals that there is currently no sequel in development and that the future of The Wold Ends With You depends on the enthusiasm of the fans. The World Ends With You relies on fans to continue its legacy. This has been confirmed by its producer, Tomohiko Hirano, who reveals that so far Square Enix has not decided whether to continue the license.

If the players share their passion for it with us, our company may decide to let us make a sequel! ”

Yosuke Matsuda, president of Square Enix, passed on the share to shareholders during the latest financial results. “Although NEO: The World Ends With You has been well received by users, it has underperformed our initial expectations.” The statements correspond to last November; No further details have been shared since.
