Remember last month how the Anime Expo 'Lite' livestream scheduled for July was teasing something related to Square Enix's action role-playing title, The World Ends With You? Well, as we probably should have guessed it appears to be for an anime.

Square Enix has launched an official Twitter account for the project along with a website featuring a countdown timer. The reveal of the anime will take place on Friday July 3 at 6PM PDT / Saturday July 4 at 10AM JST on Twitch and YouTube.

The studio animating this new project is expected to be announced at the show. While there's no mention of a panel, the anime companies Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Aniplex will all be present - so presumably one of them will be handling the reveal.

The World Ends With You first arrived on the DS in 2007 and was developed by Square Enix and Jupiter. In 2012, the game received an enhanced port for mobile devices, and in October 2018, The World Ends With You: Final Remix landed on Switch.
