Earlier this week, producer Tetsuya Nomura stated on Twitter that more information concerning Neo: The World Ends With You would be revealed on April 9, right before the first episode of the anime airs on the same day. The new information has been revealed as promised, with the release of a brand new trailer.
The biggest piece of news, however, is that we finally have a release date for Neo: The World Ends With You. The game will release on July 27, globally, as confirmed by Square Enix’s English site and trailer, for both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It was also confirmed that the game will be available on Epic Games Store in Summer 2021.
Recently, game director Tatsuya Kando spoke about Neo: The World Ends With You during a special program aired earlier this week, stating that the sequel will be set three years after the events of the anime.
Creative producer and lead character designer for the original The World Ends With You, Tetsuya Nomura had wanted to develop a sequel since 2018. Nomura stated at the time that the Final Remix remaster of the game, which came out for Nintendo Switch, was the “final chance for creating a path to the next step, which I’ve had ideas about since the first launch 11 years ago.”
