We also shared our impressions of the title’s PC port.

The story of NEO: The World Ends with You takes place in Shibuya. However, the main protagonist, Rindo, feels like something is off, which leads him to witness a psychic battle in the center of the Scramble Crossing. This is when he’s introduced to the “Reapers’ Game.” Sadly, this game comes with a few life-threatening rules: You cease to exist if you don’t win. So now, Rindo and his friend Fret fight against other players to find a way home.

NEO: The World Ends with You is available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store and Steam. Purchasers of the PC version will automatically receive the ‘Legendary Threads Set’ and the ‘Reapers’ Game Survival Set’ DLC, which are helpful pieces of equipment.
