The adaption of Square Enix’s The World Ends With You, is out next April and it looks gorgeous….
The plot for the game and series is as follows. While everyday life goes on in the Realground, the chosen dead are brought to an alternate plane of existence called the Underground . The Underground is also the venue for the Reapers’ Game. By offering their most treasured possession to enter the Game, the dead gain the chance to contest for the prize: to be brought back to life or to transcend to a higher form of spiritual existence. Most of those who choose to transcend become Reapers, the opponents of players in future Games.
Lasting a week, each Game is a contest to judge the worth of humanity. Players set out to accomplish objectives under the rules created by the Composer, who is a god-like entity who maintains Shibuya. Another Reaper, the Conductor, tasks other Reapers to obstruct the players’ efforts. Failure to complete a mission will disperse the mind and spirit of the player or Reaper, thus erasing his or her existence. Btw this all takes place in iconic Shibuya ,Tokyo.
With beautiful, unique animation, a great story and the promise of 2021 I am already hooked on this one.
