THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU - THE ANIMATION Has Finally Been Given An Official Release Date

After a few months since it was first announced, Square Enix has finally given fans an official release date for The World Ends With You - The Animation.

In June of this year, Square Enix revealed that they were working on an animated series based on The World Ends With You video game, and that this would not be a cotinuation of the game, as it was initially thought, but a retelling of the events that take place in the popular role-playing title.

Other than the teaser trailer, however, not much has been known about The World Ends With You - The Animation, but Square Enix did initially reassure fans that the series would be airing at some point in 2021, which is still phenomenal news for those who have been waiting over a decade for the developer to touch do anything with the series again.

Today fans will be delighted to know that Square Enix has finally given us an official release date for the upcoming anime series. Well, sort of, as they did announce that The World Ends With You - The Animation will begin airing in April of 2021, but an exact release date they did not share, unfortunately.

This is actually perfect now that Square Enix has just announced NEO: The World Ends With You, as the recently announced video game, and direct sequel to the original title, has been revealed to launch for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Summer of 2021.

The main character Neku wakes up in the middle of a busy Shibuya Crossing Intersection unaware of how he got there. He’s in an alternate plane of existence called the Underground (UG). Unknowingly forced to participate in the “Reaper’s Game”, Neku must partner with Shiki, a teenage girl player whom he meets. Neku must fight to survive by completing the missions thrown at him and defeating the creatures called “Noise.” By doing so, he will confront the “Reaper’s Game” along with the truth buried deep inside his memory.

The World Ends With You - The Animation is expected to release worldwide in April of 2021.
