NEO: The World Ends With You is a modern-day arcade RPG, the sequel to The World Ends With You.

Unused Code

  • The game features only two "tiers" of pin: standard and Uber. But the internal configuration files support all of the "grades" of pin that were present in The World Ends With You.
  • None of the pins in the game have a "boot time" before they can be used, but this option exists in the configuration.

Unused Graphics

The game's asset database includes several shirt mask textures for Nagi Usui that are never used.

The one file from this directory that is used is chr_004_00_b03.png, which contains the texture for the shirt Nagi normally wears in battle. It is possible that these designs were intended to be used in battles based on differing difficulty level.

Other unused graphics are TIPS screens like in original TWEwY.

Internal Icon and Shop Names

Several of the icons and shop brandings appearing in the city which resemble real-life shops or brands in Shibuya have internal filenames based on those real-life brands. Not all are used in the game.
