After an almost 15 year wait, the sequel to Square Enix’s classic DS JRPG The World Ends With You is finally here, Neo: The World Ends With You.

While some people were able to play Ne0: TWEWY early due to the Square Enix store accidentally giving out digital codes for the Switch, the game officially launched today, July 27.

You play as Rindo, a somewhat detached teenager (so, a normal teenager) who suddenly finds himself in a strange, parallel version of Shibuya where monsters powered by negative emotions roam the street. Teaming up with a group of other players to form the Wicked Twisters, the only way Rindo can escape the “Reaper’s Game” is by surviving for a week.

From what we’ve seen so far of Neo: TWEWY, it seems to use the same mechanics as the original The World Ends With You. Each member of the Wicked Twisters comes with their own special ability, and you’re able to collect various pins that activate certain powers. The most noticeable difference is that it uses a 3D-based battle system.

If this game is even half as good as the original, then we’re in for a good time.

So where can you get a cheap copy of Neo: The World Ends With You?

If you want to pick up a copy of the game while saving yourself a few dollars, there aren’t that many options out there. For whatever reason, a lot of big Australian retailers like Big W and Target aren’t listing this title on their online stores.
