Nomura hints at The World Ends With You sequel

Something is being worked on.

Neku Sakuraba’s appearance in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance may be a sign of a new The World Ends With You. Speaking with the latest issue of Famitsu, Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura said Neku’s appearance could be taken as a hint of something to come, adding that something is being worked on.

Nomura didn’t directly use the term “sequel,” nor did he directly say a new game is in development, but his comments at least indicate there’s hope for Neku outside his appearance in Kingdom Hearts 3D.
