Square Enix have released more screenshots and artwork for NEO: The World Ends With You! See some familiar faces among the supporting cast and learn more about the imprinting system, side quests, team battles, and fan favorite pig noises!

SHINJUKU REAPERS: Overseers of the Reapers' Game

As Rindo progresses through the Reapers’ Game, he starts having visions—fragmented flashes of incidents that may soon occur. In one such vision of the future, he sees a ghastly sight: the entire city of Shibuya, crumbling into dust…

Is this an unavoidable outcome, or can Rindo change the fate of the city?

  

Are the Shinjuku Reapers—whose own home was recently destroyed—in any way involved with Shibuya’s impending doom?

CHARACTERS

    

Coco (Voice: Kitana Turnbull): “You have no friggin' idea what I've been through to get here, you festering sack of garbage!”

A Reaper girl who does as she pleases, spending most of her time in Harajuku. She has little interest in her Reaperly duties, sometimes even wandering outside Shibuya. Despite her delicate appearance, she is actually quite cunning, deceiving others to help get her way—but she remains deeply loyal to her friends. 

She was with Neku and Beat when a certain post-Game incident occurred three years ago.

Eiji Oji: “This flower’s almost as lovely as you ladies—almost.”

A top influencer who blew up a few years ago thanks to his nonchalant charm and half-hearted demeanor. Recently, he has taken the world’s young generation by storm with his calm and lazy attitude.

Eiru: “Why do I have to sound so different from everyone else?”

A popular streamer who charms his audience with his unique, high-pitched voice. He only grew comfortable with his voice thanks to Eiji Oji, however, and now hopes to collaborate with him someday…

Ken Doi: “I’m gonna make a curry that’s all my own!”

Although he previously ran a ramen joint, a few twists and turns led him to shift his focus to curry. He is currently trying to rebrand by opening a new restaurant: SPICY CURRY DON.

Ryoji: “Hey, you’re just in time!”

Shibuya’s handyman who undertakes any task imaginable, from the unbelievably simple to the unspeakably seedy. Born with a strong “sixth sense,” he is deeply connected to the UG.

  
 

SYSTEM: IMPRINTING

Use Imprinting to sway people’s actions!

While Rindo and the gang can’t directly interact with the denizens of Shibuya, they can “imprint” keywords in people’s heads to change their minds and influence their actions. If you can’t find a path forward, try getting someone else to forge a path for you!

   

Scan people’s thoughts and chat with your teammates to produce new keywords. Combine keywords that will resonate with your target and imprint a new idea.

SIDE QUESTS

In Shibuya, you may also come across people who are facing problems or worries. While side quests aren’t related to the missions posed in the Reapers’ Game, you’ll be able to earn various benefits through helping the people you meet.

Depending on the situation, you may need to interact with the Reapers or members of other teams!

   

In addition to Imprinting, use Fret’s “Imprint” and Nagi’s “Dive” Psychs to solve people’s problems. When an issue is resolved, the Social Network is updated, and you may be eligible to obtain a reward.

TEAM BATTLES: Six-Person Combat

Up to six characters can join the fray at one time! Even if you press buttons randomly, you’ll still be able to experience flashy and exhilarating battles with psychs flying all over the place.

But of course, that’s not the only way to enjoy combat: unleashing each psych at just the right moment will allow you to string together slick combos and tap into a whole new level of strategy. Skillfully align your entire party to topple your foes in battle!

TEAM BATTLES: Chain Battles

Combat will begin shortly after you come into contact with a Noise symbol, but you can string together several encounters by touching multiple symbols in short succession. The more battles there are in a chain, the higher the item drop rate, which will earn you more pins. Beware, though: the longer the chain, the stronger enemies’ attacks will become as you proceed.

  

By unlocking rewards on the Social Network, you can increase the number of chain battles as well as gain the ability to draw in Noise symbols from far away.

Your team’s HP will carry over from round to round, so try not to take too much damage!

NOISE

Among the enemies you will face, some will prove rather tricky to take down, splitting themselves in two or going temporarily invisible.

The Pig Noise are among the trickiest of these foes: each type requires a different strategy but poaching these pigs will earn you a handsome reward!

  

Some Pig Noise are easy to defeat, while others are only susceptible to psychs of a certain affinity, or only vulnerable under specific conditions.

Pig Noise will flee from battle if you don’t defeat them before time runs out, so quickly uncovering their weakness is key!

 

PINS

Make full use of special pins!

Among the psych pins you will discover, there are “Uber” pins that boast incredible power, as well as sets known as “Pin Ensembles” that activate special abilities when equipped together.

Use them well and take your Game to the next level!

 

Uber pins are too powerful to be wielded in great numbers—but you can equip more once you reap some rewards on your Social Network.

Pin Ensembles can be equipped by any character. Some ensembles only require two pins for the effect to kick in, while some may require as many as six pins.


Evolve pins to make them more powerful!

Pins will level up as you obtain EXP through battles, and some may even evolve into new pins once their level is maxed out. When pins evolve, their basic stats improve, offering more power and faster reboots. Try enhancing a variety of pins and uncover the secrets of evolution!

 

Some pins will only evolve under certain conditions. See if you can evolve ‘em all!


  

In the Snipeline: A pin that will fire “Homing Rockets,” a series of missiles that chase after your enemies. Change targets while charging to lock onto multiple foes.

Heartful Hot Dog: A pin that activates “Protective Field,” a barrier that temporarily nullifies incoming attacks while damaging any enemies it touches.

Raven: A pin that unleashes “Patrol Rounds,” a flock of bird-like boomerangs that fly toward your enemies before returning back to you.

So here's a thought: what if there's a special battle where we play as Neku solo & he can use the whole 6 pins on his own? It'd be make him look crazy powerful compared to the party even though it's consistent with the 1st game.

Yes. Also beware. The party members already leaked so its very easy to stumble upon if you happen to do any surface level searching.

Haha that would be cute if she did. It'd be a real Piggy to shut Neku up xD

That would be really cool and very in-character for him.

It’s the same concept from the original game, but I think they are calling alternative pin evolutions that aren’t from BP “mutation”.

Oh yeah. I forgot that mechanic. That's probably what it is then.

Do you have ps4 or switch? Try the demo.

You can play the demo to figure out if you’d like it or not. It covers the first few days of the game and that gives you a good idea of how the game will play and how the dialogue is.

Combat is super intuitive, and once you figure out the right setup, it’s smooth like butter to fight enemies. In the full game you can bump up the difficulty whenever you want to get more of a challenge, and in the demo and full game you can alter your level as well. All of this will increase the difficulty and net you better rewards in battle.

TWEWY doesn’t lean heavy into anime tropes. It’s pretty grounded in that regard. Way better script with way more natural dialogue than KH by leagues. Leaps and bounds better. Of course there are characters whose quirks are played up but it’s not that outrageous and awkward except when it is intentionally awkward, and the cast is self-aware enough to point it out lol

The only thing anime about it is the presentation.

That's a solid case for the game, thanks. I'll definitely grab the demo.
