It will take players about 50 hours to complete the normal role-playing game NEO: The World Ends with You. The development leaders Tatsuya Kando and Hiroyuki Ito told about this in an interview with the Japanese edition 4Gamer.
According to Ito, the sequel to The World Ends With You is much larger than the original. The main plot is longer here, and there are more additional tasks and side activities, including those related to battles and gathering.
“If you are used to collecting and executing everything, expect your game counter to reach three digits,” Kando added.
NEO: The World Ends With You takes place three years after the finale of The World Ends With You and the animated series The World Ends with You: The Animation.
The main scene will again be Tokyo’s Shibuya area, where a deadly game takes place in an alternate reality, in which life itself is the reward for winning. The role of the central protagonist is assigned to a new character – the mysterious youth Rindo. Neku from the first part will also return.
In terms of gameplay, NEO: The World Ends with You takes a significant step forward by bringing all of its adventures into a 3D perspective. Players will explore the streets of Shibuya, search for secrets, and fight opponents while listening to memorable compositions by Japanese composer Takeharu Ishimoto.
NEO: The World Ends with You is set to launch on July 27th for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. A demo version of the game is now available on the PlayStation Store and shop.
