The World Ends with You made a heck of an impact when it first debuted on Nintendo DS in 2007. And its sequel game, NEO: The World Ends with You is primed to continue the series’ legacy!
During the “It’s a Wonderful Special” event for the franchise, NEO director Tatsuya Kando revealed that the upcoming video game would take place three years after the events of the upcoming The World Ends with You The Animation anime series.
Not only that, but series producer Tetsuya Nomura (Kingdom Hearts) posted on Twitter that more information for the game would be revealed on April 9, just before the simulcast premiere of The World Ends with You The Animation.
