NEO: The World Ends with You, known in Japan as NEO: It's a Wonderful World (新すばらしきこのせかい Shin Subarashiki Kono Sekai), is the second game in The World Ends with You franchise and acts as a sequel to The World Ends with You The Animation. It will release in July 27th, 2021 for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, and Summer 2021 on Epic Games Store for PC.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Environments in the game are now rendered in cel-shaded 3D, although the game features 2D artwork such as character portraits.
Similarly to the original game, the player has access to a variety of psychs all of which are new psychs. Unlike the original partner based combat, this game focuses on using a team of four characters. Each character has access to a variety of psychs but can only equip one at a time. Pressing each Player's corresponding button activates their psych. After landing a full combo or large attack on an enemy, an indicator saying 'DROP THE BEAT!' will appear. Attacking that enemy with another Player will raise the party's Groove percent. The indicator will remain until it runs out or another enemy is attacked. Just like health was shared between partners in the original game, health is shared between the team.
