“The World Ends with You” was one of the best video games on the Nintendo
DS and boasted a stellar cast of characters that helps the title retain a large fan base nearly 14 years after its release. Now, with a sequel on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch set for release in July, Funimation’s “The World Ends with You The Animation” is here to get newcomers up to speed and tickle the nostalgia buttons of the original game’s fans.
Interested parties will be pleased to know that the Funimation’s series adaptation is far more than a soulless tie-in. “The World Ends with You The Animation” is shaping up to be an affectionate and faithful retelling of the original game that could also appeal to those unfamiliar with the original Nintendo DS title.
Like the game its based on, Funimation’s “The World Ends with You” centers on Neku Sakuraba,
