NEO: The World Ends with You is coming to Epic next week

Put a pin in it

NEO: The World Ends with You hit PlayStation 4 and Switch earlier this year, and now it seems to have a date for its PC appearance. A Square Enix website posting listed NEO: The World Ends with You as hitting the Epic Games Store on Sept. 28.

The Square Enix website lists a Sept. 28 date for the Epic Games Store, though its link out to an Epic Games Store page, which just went live as well. It’s listing for $59.99 and has the same date, Sept. 28, and Square Enix has now confirmed it on social media.

NEO, a follow-up to 2007 DS RPG The World Ends with You, was previously confirmed to be coming to PC via the Epic store sometime this summer. Looks like the pin-smashing adventure is getting in right before the swapping of the seasons.

When NEO: The World Ends with You launched back in July for PS4 and Switch, we were pretty into it. “NEO: The World Ends with You is a sequel worth waiting for. It brings together many of the best concepts from the DS original but in a more approachable and accessible experience,” CJ wrote about the follow-up.

I’m very curious to see what the keyboard map for this game looks like. It’s not exactly the control conundrum that its predecessor was, but NEO still has a unique kind of combat that relies on holding, tapping, and manipulating various button presses to create pin combos with your party. I’m curious as to how that’s going to feel on a keyboard layout, as controller might end up being the better option here.

It’s good that more people will have a chance to check out this odd, stylish, and heartfelt RPG, though. Neo: The World Ends with You hits the Epic Games Store on Sept. 28, 2021.
