New Release Review: NEO: The World Ends With You (Demo)

 


What would you and your friend  wake up and you were dead, and had no memory of what happened to you but you had a premonition on who your friend died. Now you in the state of the Underground (purgatory) among the Reapers. You and your friend are unwillingly apart of the Reaper's Games. If you win the game, you and your friend and or teammates are resurrected back to earth. if not, you go on to the realm of the dead. What will you do?

NEO: The World Ends with You was a newly released on July 27, 2021. This action role-playing game  is a sequel to the 2007 video game The World Ends with You. Co-developed by Square Enix and h.a.n.d. and published by Square Enix. The story has a new cast of characters playing in the Reapers' Game. Unlike the original game this version now three-dimensional. NEO: The World Ends With You (Full Game) is now available!

My Review...

NEO: The World Ends With You (Demo), not Full Game. The Demo game was free in the PlayStation store. But what really attracted me to the game was the Trailer, and the graphics. Upon playing this game, I noticed there are multiple styles. Action role-playing, two dimension, third dimension, storyline, and comic panel art. I haven't ever played a game quite like this. For someone who is into gaming, anime, and comic books, this was right up my ally. Seriously! 

With the demo, you get an intro in the game like it's an actual series. In the actual game, the story line spans over a 7 day time frame. In the demo, you get two days which is about 2 1/2 - 3 hours of game play. The demo is definitely a gateway into the fuller, longer game. The game comes at a perfect time, any sooner, and it would have definitely be a head of it time. This demo was amazing, it didn't disappoint. 

The controls for this game are very simple for PlayStation 4 controllers. It shows and explains these in the game. Up, down, left, right to move, X to talk to NPCs and to engage in battle, etc. When your duo or trio are in battle, your main character attacks by pressing the triangle button, your friend (sidekick) attacks by pressing the square button, and your third teammate attacks by pressing the R1 button. You can super charge their attack by pressing the L2 button.


The characters are very interesting. Rindo Kanade, the leader of the Wicked Twisters. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa, a member of the Wicked Twisters and Rindo's friend. Sho Minamimoto, he was a Reaper Officer but became a player and joins the Wicked Twisters. Through the demo game you mostly play Rindo, though you will also play as Fret and Sho as well. Nagi Usui, is also a member of your team but she didn't come in play until the "Full" version game.

Storyline, Rindo Kanade and Fret find Reaper Pins and become part of the Reapers' Game. Rindo having no prior knowledge of what happened to him, other than have a premonition about his friend's death, is slowly understanding something is wrong but is still in a state of denial. They are greeted by a Reaper that explains to them the rules of the Reapers' Game. By defeating enemies, known as Noise, and other teams; they can win the chance to return to the land of the living.

Play or Pass... definitely PLAY! I like I said above "The Demo game was free in the PlayStation app store." I really enjoyed playing NEO: The World Ends With You (Demo) and I will be purchasing the full game.
