Is Neku in NEO: The World Ends With You?
Who is Neku?
Neku is the original protagonist of the first game The World Ends With You. He is a brash and rebellious teenager who becomes a Player of the Reapers’ Game to decide the fate of Shibuya.
Neku in NEO: The World Ends With You
Neku appears in two of the game’s official trailers. It has yet to be revealed what his role is in NEO: The World Ends With You, though it is expected that he will play a major part in the game’s story.
It is also currently unknown whether Neku will become a permanent playable ally in the game. There is also speculation that Rindo and his team will have to fight Neku at some point either as part of the main story or as a secret (optional) boss.
First Appearance (Release Date Trailer)
A hooded masked figure heavily implied to be Neku appears in the game’s release date trailer. He can be seen protecting Rindo and the Wicked Twisters from another Player named Tsugumi in the Reapers’ Game.
As Tsugumi takes aim at Rindo and his friends, the hooded figure walks forward. Rindo can then be heard yelling out “Neku!” in the trailer.
Second Appearance (Final Trailer)
In the game’s final trailer, Neku again appears, this time without his hood on but with his back turned from the screen. Though Neku’s face is not seen, it is easy to recognize his hairstyle and assume that it really is him.
