The World Ends With You 2 is Coming to Switch and PS4

The World Ends With You 2 is actually happening and lands on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in 2021.

The World Ends With You 2 is happening, over a decade after the original released on Nintendo DS. It's officially called NEO: The World Ends With You and is set for launch in summer 2021 for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

TWEWY 2 takes players back to Shibuya, the setting of the original. The Reaper's Game is back, turning Shibuya into a hellish nightmare and putting the world at risk. Fortunately, a team of stylish teenagers is on hand, ready to make things right again.

The World Ends With You 2 sees the signature Pin system return for combat, though other gameplay details are scarce at the moment.

So far, it all seems pretty similar to the original The World Ends With You, with a couple of exceptions. This time, it's all in glorious 3D.

The character portraits, dialogue windows, and music tracks are even snazzier too, if the trailer is any indication.

Square Enix plans on releasing The World Ends With You 2 in summer 2021 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The original The World Ends With You received a Final Remix version for Nintendo Switch with additional endgame content and a slightly convoluted control scheme. Hopefully, Square Enix has that worked out for TWEWY 2


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
