NEO World ends with you Sequel can happen if enough fans want it

NEO: The world ends with you may not have lived up to Square Enix’s sales expectations, but if enough fans express their support for a sequel, we might get another entry.

That’s according to producer Tomohiko Hirano, who told Nintendo Life that Square Enix hasn’t made any decisions about the IP and its future, but there’s plenty of material worth exploring further that he’d be happy to delve into more deeply. . However, it should make business sense for the publisher, who revealed in its latest earnings report that: NEO: The world ends with you‘s commercial performance did not exactly match its critical success.

“Honestly, nothing has been decided on the next installment yet,” Hirano told Nintendo Life. “However, as a game based on a real city, there are still a lot of areas that we still haven’t been able to bring to life in the games, so part of me wants to make that happen somehow. If players convey their passion for the game to us, our company may decide to let us make a sequel!”

For what it’s worth, Square Enix has recognized that NEO: The world ends with you was well received by players, so there’s some hope a sequel would do better in terms of sales.

In PlayStation LifeStyle’s review of the game, Alanna praised Lataillade NEO: The world ends with you for its battles and environment. However, she felt it didn’t welcome newcomers to the series, which could be part of the reason it didn’t do well in terms of sales.
