What is NEO: The World Ends With You?
NEO: The World Ends With You is a complete sequel to the 2007 original, a well-received JRPG that debuted on the Nintendo DS and has since been released on mobile and as an enhanced port for Nintendo Switch.
This new game follows Rindo, a high school student who is caught up in the mysterious "Game of the Reapers", a life-and-death battle that you are forced to play. Laughing is accompanied by new characters Fret and Nagi, as well as Minamimoto, who appeared in the original game. This group of heroes is known collectively as Wicked Twisters. They will have to face several rival teams in "a weeklong battle for their lives!"

As you play, you collect "threads" that are not only fashionable, but also give stats to your characters. You also collect pins that allow you to unleash "psychological" skills in battle. You control several members of the group at once, but each member can equip only one pin. Your job is to press buttons to deploy psychologists in order to defeat your enemies. More than 300 pins are available to find, so you can mix and match to create effective combos.
This edition represents the first time that the series arrives on PlayStation.
