On November 23, the official Twitter account for The World Ends With You Anime revealed a new trailer, the OP theme song and a new key visual. The new key visual shows the Reaper characters (Shinigami in Japanese). With Uzuki Yashiro, Koki Kariya, Yodai Higashizawa, Mitsuki Konishi, Sho Minamimoto, and Megumi Kitaniji.

Secondly, the opening theme song for The World Ends With You Anime was announced. It’s titled Teenage City Riot, performed by the seven members band ALI. Standing for Alien Liberty International, ALI is a band with multiple styles, Funk/Soul/Jazz/Latin. Comments by Leo, the vocalist of ALI, were published on the official site.

Leo Imamura: We will be doing the opening for the animation, “The World Ends with You” with our song, “Teenage City Riot”! As a band from Shibuya, we are honored to play a fanfare where it’s setting is based in Shibuya as the battle field. Please continue to check us out in 2021!

Moreover, starting November 17, Square Enix opened a mysterious countdown site for TWEWY. Stating “Timelimit Within 7 Days”. Since then, each day at midnight, a trailer for one of the previous TWEWY games was shown. Moreover illustrations, characters, remixed arrangements of BGM and the like have been part of the countdown. Possibly teasing a sequel. The countdown site currently shows an artwork of a character holding a smartphone with a mysterious symbol.

First off, some might be getting a cold shower for their hype regarding a new The World Ends With You game. Thinking the artwork means it’ll be a smartphone game getting announced. However, smartphones play a huge part in the The World Ends With You, so this might be playing with that rather than teasing a potential platform for this next project.

The countdown for this new The World Ends With You project will end on November 24 at midnight JST. In other words, November 23 for part of America, at 1000 ET. (Click here for a time conversion table).
