It's been a while since the last update on NEO: The World Ends With You and while this isn't as meaty of an update as we'd like, it's good to see some movement on the game.

On March 18th 2021, the Australian Classification Board updated their website with a rating for NEO: The World Ends With You. The game was mainly rated M due to a moderate impact of themes and language, with a mild impact on violence.

Similiar to the Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, and other Square Enix properties, Bandai Namco Australia will be handling distribution for the game in that region. The game version is 'ORIGINAL,' meaning that content shouldn't be removed or altered from the Japanese version of the game.

Square Enix haven't provided a release date for NEO: The World Ends With You but it's still scheduled to release Summer 2021 on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. In the meantime, The World Ends With You: The Animation will start airing on April 9th 2021 so there's plenty of The World Ends With You to enjoy this year.

I think this is on par with the ESRB T rating, for those who were wondering.
It’s a similar case to Persona 5. It was rated M in America, but rated as 16 in Europe. I think Australia has an MA rating which is closer the ESRB‘s M.
While in comparison, TWEWY was rated T in America but 12 in Europe. The KH games are also rated 12 in Europe, but are E10 in America.
Neo TWEWY is probably on the lower end of Australia’s equivalent of the T rating.
