Publisher Square Enix and developer h.a.n.d. announced that its action RPG NEO: The World Ends with You will release for PC via the Epic Game Store on September 28. An announcement trailer was also revealed.
NEO: The World Ends with You is a sequel to the 2007 action RPG The World Ends with You. It was first announced back in November 2020 and released for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on July 27 worldwide. An anime adaptation of the first game titled The World Ends with You the Animation (Subarashiki Kono Sekai The Animation) premiered on April 10 and ended on June 26 with its 12th episode.
The game’s website describes the story as:
It was just another seemingly ordinary day in Shibuya-but not for Rindo. He could tell something about the city felt different.
He soon finds himself caught in the telekinetic crossfire of a psychic battle unfolding in the Scramble Crossing. And before he can catch his breath, a girl with an ominous aura appears before him and welcomes him to the so-called “Reapers’ Game.”
With some trepidation, Rindo and his friend Fret play along, convincing themselves that a “Game” couldn’t have any serious consequences. It isn’t long, however, until they start having second thoughts.
Rindo’s instinct was right: something about this Shibuya is different.
