In June of this year, Square Enix surprised pleasantly fans of The World Ends With You by announcing that the video game would be getting an anime adaptation, and that fans should expect this new series to release at a yet-to-be-determined date next year.
Not much information about The World Ends With You - The Animation was shared at the time, but the news alone was more than enough to make fans of the popular role-playing title excited, as this is the most love Square Enix had given the series since its original release back in 2007.
Today we have some great news for fans who have been impatiently anticipating to know more about the upcoming anime series, as Square Enix has confirmed that The World Ends With You - The Animation will become available in April of 2021; thus narrowing the release window originally revealed.
Unfortunately, the release date is still a release window in disguise, so we have to keep waiting until Square Enix gives us the exact date in which The World Ends With You - The Animation finally begins to air.
In related news, Square Enix has just announced NEO: The World Ends With You, which is the brand-new video game that fans of the series have been waiting to see come to fruition for over 13 years, so be sure to visit our sister site GameFragger to learn more about it.
