TITLE: Neo: The World Ends with You,
DEVELOPER: Square Enix / h.a.n.d.
PLATFORM: PlayStation 5 (PS4 version)

Neo: The World Ends with You is an action role-playing game developed by Square Enix and h.a.n.d. and published by Square Enix. This game is a sequel to the 2007 video game The World Ends with You. It was released for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in July 27th, 2021, and is planned to be released later in 2021 for Microsoft Windows. It features a new cast of characters playing the Reapers' Game in Shibuya and, unlike the original game, features three-dimensional graphics.

Returning staff for the game include Tetsuya Nomura as creative producer and character designer, Gen Kobayashi as character designer, and Hiroyuki Itou who was game designer in the original but now as director. Takeharu Ishimoto, the composer for the original game, though no longer a full time employee of Square Enix, confirmed he will also be composing the music for the sequel.

Unlike the first title in the series, Neo is a fully 3D title. Players can control multiple characters at once during combat and attack opponents with "psych" abilities granted by items called "pins". Each character can equip one pin of the over 300 available, and different pin groupings can create combination attacks. Wearable "threads" also give a boost to the players characters abilities. Common game enemies are called "Noise", which are negative emotions that have come to life. The scanning ability the player uses to search for these enemies allows the player to read characters thoughts.

The game takes place in a recreated and stylized version of the Shibuya district in Tokyo, Japan. Unlike the first game's depiction of Shibuya, places such as Tower Records and Parco keep their names instead of using different ones such as Towa Records and Molco. As with the anime adaptation, some of the elements of the game had been modernized for the sequel, such as the use of smartphones rather than earlier flip-style cell phones and the appearance of the game's 104 building matches the current appearance of the real-life Shibuya 109 building.
