NEO: The World Ends with You was announced last year after Square Enix teased fans with a website and countdown timer. The company says that the game is an action RPG sequel to the first game that tells a story aimed to satisfy fans that have been clamoring for a follow-up. Square Enix provides a brief summary of what you can expect at launch this July:

Explore the dazzling streets of Tokyo as Rindo, leader of the Wicked Twisters, caught up in a battle to survive and win the “Reapers’ Game.” Team up with a vibrant cast of characters, collect badges to arm yourself with powerful psych abilities, and take on foes in hyper-stylish action battles.

The World Ends with You debuted on Nintendo DS in 2007 in Japan and has recently seen a resurgence. After a mobile port and seeing a re-release on Nintendo Switch in 2018 with The World Ends with You: Final Remix, fans are at last receiving an official sequel with NEO: The World Ends with You, and the franchise even has an anime that just premiered.
