The release date of NEO: The World Ends With You is still a month away, but players can now pass the wait by playing the game’s demo, made available by the developers on both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
“Immerse yourself in the streets of Shibuya and experience the first two days of the Game of Demons. It’s up to you to find out how this story unfolds! Test your psychic skills as you fight through the elegantly animated streets of Shibuya.”
Square Enix has also confirmed that players’ progress in the demo will be transferable to the full game as long as it is on the same platform.
NEO: The World Ends With You is the direct sequel to The World Ends With You, a 2007 game developed by the Kingdom Hearts team. To prepare gamers for the sequel, Square Enix has produced a twelve-episode anime adaptation that traces the events of the first video game, currently underway in Japan and scheduled to end on June 26.
However, the release of NEO: The World Ends With You is expected for July 27 on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
