Neo: The World Ends with You is a new action RPG from Square Enix. Meet quirky characters, gain new abilities, and fight your way to victory in this game where your future is at stake. If fast-paced action and a compelling narrative intrigue you, then be sure to check this game out.
Neo: The World Ends with You is the sequel to the immensely popular first game released all the way back in 2007. Set once again in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, Neo: The World Ends with You features a whole host of both new and returning characters that you can expect to meet throughout your adventure – more on those later.
In this game, you get to play as Rindo Kanade, a high school student and player in the Reaper's Game, which is a competition that takes place in a parallel dimension for those that have died and wish to be rewarded in the afterlife or be given a second chance at a normal life. Whether Rindo makes it through successfully or not is up to you, so good luck.
Alongside Rindo Kanade, you’ve got his classmate Tosai Furesawa, as well as a college student called Nagi. The trio makes up a team in the Reaper's Game, working together against other teams and aiming to survive as long as possible. Other characters you’ll meet include members of other teams like the charismatic Kanon Tachibana, as well as actual reapers like Shoka Sakurane and Tanzo Kubo. In terms of returning characters from the first game, you can expect to see the protagonist Neku Sakuraba to some degree, as well as the antagonists Sho Minamimoto, Koki Kariya, and Uzuki Yashiro. If you played the first game, prepare for many nostalgic moments and old references.
The combat mechanics in Neo: The World Ends with You are really cool, letting you control all the characters in your party at once. The mechanics are similar to what you see in Kingdom Hearts, but there are some notable differences. Every character can equip one “pin” which grants them psychic powers of sorts, and the attack associated with that pin gets bound to a certain button. If you have particular combinations of “pins” equipped, you can perform some awesome combination attacks with your party, so be sure to try out different combinations and see what works.
Many of the psychic powers will also be familiar to you if you played the first game in this series, adding that element of nostalgia I mentioned earlier.
Neo: The World Ends with You builds upon the success of the first game and delivers an excellent gameplay experience that any and all RPG fans are sure to love. The story, combat mechanics, and art style are all fantastic, and I can’t wait for you to try this game out for yourself. Be sure to download Neo: The World Ends with You as soon as possible.
