Neo: The World Ends With You heads to PC this summer

The sequel to the 2007 JRPG will be an Epic Games Store exclusive.

Origɪɴᴀʟʟy cᴏɴfirᴍᴇd ꜰᴏʀ PS4 ᴀɴd Nɪɴᴛᴇɴᴅᴏ Swɪᴛch, Squᴀʀᴇ Enix hᴀs ᴀɴɴᴏunced thᴀᴛ JRPG sequel Neo: Tʜᴇ Wᴏʀld Ends Wɪᴛh You ɪs comɪɴg ᴛᴏ PC ᴀs ᴀɴ Epic exclᴜsive tʜɪs sumᴍᴇr.

Released back in 2007, the original The World Ends With You was a cult classic on the Nintendo DS—a slick, urban supernatural RPG that saw hip street kids compete in a deadly game on the streets of Tokyo's Shinjuku district. Neo pits a fresh cast of characters against the same challenge, this time in a 3D rendition of Tokyo's streets.

The announcement follows Square Enix dropping all the Kingdom Hearts games on Epic last month—though this time around, you probably won't need a lengthy primer to get started. TWEWY is also getting an official anime adaptation in Japan later this month, with Square Enix confirming it'll get an official western release later.

Neo: The World Ends With You is coming out on consoles on July 27th. The PC release have a vaguer launch window of later this Summer, and will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on release (hopefully coming to other PC platforms a year later).
