The original game, and indeed the Remix version now available on Switch, is perhaps most remembered for its striking visuals and soundtrack. The music plays a big part in the overall experience of the original, so we imagine fans of the series will be thrilled to hear that the new game is in very capable hands.
Ishimoto announced his involvement with the project on Twitter:
Of course, Ishimoto’s no stranger to the world of game music composition outside of The World Ends With You. He was formerly employed at Square Enix and has worked on series such as Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts in recent years.
If you missed the official announcement trailer for Neo: The World Ends With You, make sure to give that a watch here. The new game is planned to launch on Switch next summer.
