The World Ends with You Doesn’t Live Up to Square Enix’s Expectations

Recent articles

Bad news for TWEWY fans. The announcement was so surprising NEO: The world ends with you was, that’s how disappointing the numbers are – at least from Square Enix’s point of view.

In the current annual report (PDF) you will first notice that net income from games has decreased compared to the same period last year. While HD games like Outriders, NieR Replicant, Life is Strange: True Colors and NEO: The World Ends With You have been released, the numbers lagged behind last year, when Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s came out during this time frame.

Only on NEO: The World Ends With You has Square Enix responded more specifically. The game was very well received by fans, but it did not “live up to the original expectations”.

On the one hand, this is of course sad for the fans, on the other hand, many expected it. Since Square Enix hasn’t done much for the marketing of the game and especially the original – SpeckObst can also be found in the video below. He also makes comparisons to early yakuza marketing. How yakuza can run if marketed properly has been demonstrated in recent years.

NEO: The World Ends with You is available for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It also appeared on the Epic Games Store a few weeks ago. And it’s very good! Our test also confirms this for you. The retail versions for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 can be found, for example, on Amazon*. They are currently discounted as part of the Black Friday deals.
