NEO: The World Ends with You is setting out to be just as good as its predecessor. I had the chance to try out the first two hours in the game, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much the sequel stays true to the original's atmosphere and unique combat.

The wait has been terribly long, but it seems like it is definitely going to pay off in the end. In the first two hours, NEO: The World Ends With You looks, sounds, and plays every bit as good as the original did, introducing some needed changes that don't stray too far from the series' roots. How good the story will turn out remains to be seen, but if the small hints provided by the animated intro will be anything to go by, we are in for something great.

NEO: The World Ends with You launches on July 27th on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game will release on PC via the Epic Games Store sometime this Summer.
