Square Enix has confirmed that Neo: The World Ends with You has not met your sales expectations. Released in July for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, and in September for the Epic Games Store, it became a critical hit and we even called it one of the surprises of the year. The title is a sequel to the cult RPG released in 2007 for the Nintendo DS and there were high expectations to see how it would work on home systems, but it seems that it fell short of expectations.
Yosuke Matsuda, President of Square Enix, has discussed his latest launches during the second quarter of the fiscal year, which spanned Life is Strange: True Colors and Neo: The World Ends with You. “We have plans to launch Life is Strange: True Colors on Nintendo Switch, in addition to Life is Strange Remastered Collection in the future. We expect both titles to maintain long-term sales. “However,” although Neo: The World Ends with You has been well received by users, has performed below our initial expectations“.
Similar to the original, Neo: The World Ends with You takes us to the streets of Shibuya neighborhood in Tokyo, where players must be part of the Reapers game, a battle for life and death survival. “When forced to participate in the so-called ‘Game of the Reapers’, Rindo realizes that his life is at stake. It is not known what will happen, but it is up to you to find out,” says his description.
Fun and with a great story
“It has a lot of content, the story is great, it is impossible not to love its characters, the fighting is fun in its simplicity, the progress system is very satisfactory and it knows how to reward the player, its art direction is amazing and its soundtrack is a gift to our ears “, we concluded in the analysis. “Is it perfect? No, but it was impossible for us to let go of the controller until it reached its magnificent end, something that few titles achieve, so Do not hesitate to give it a try if you would like its predecessor or what it proposes catches your attention. Hardly the arrepentiris”. It has a demo.
