Today Square Enix announced that an anime adaptation of the 2007 Nintendo DS RPG classic, The World Ends With You will be revealed in a panel during Anime Expo next week. Square Enix has launched a teaser site featuring a countdown clock set for the time of the reveal panel one week from today on July 3rd. The one week countdown mirrors the one week timeline that Neku and his companions have to complete the Reaper’s Game and decide their fate within the game’s story.
The announcement page on the Anime Expo website provides a little more information, confirming that Square Enix will be producing the anime with Tetsuya Nomura overseeing the production as the creative supervisor and character designer. The same role he played in the production of the game.
The World Ends With You is available on Nintendo DS, iOS and Android platforms. The World Ends With You: Final Mix, an enhanced port, is available on Nintendo Switch.
