We’re about a week away from the premiere of The World Ends with You: The Animation‘s first episode at UG Shibuya Fes. Square Enix released the third trailer for the anime that highlights the main characters Neku, Shiki, Beat, Joshua, and Rhyme taking on the Reapers in their game.
The main characters of The World Ends with You: The Animation participate in a post-life game called the Reapers’ Game. A few chosen dead are brought to an alternate Shibuya shopping district to partake in the Reapers’ Game for a chance to be brought back to life. Furthermore, those who win can also choose to transcend into a higher form. That means winners of the game can become one of the Reapers who act as administrators or Game Masters for the game.
While the anime will cover the events from the original Nintendo DS action RPG, a new game called NEO: The World Ends with You is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in summer 2021.
