A new trailer has been released for The World Ends With You: The Animation, a new, upcoming anime series based on the video game.
As you may know already, the show will be based on the original Nintendo DS title from 2007, with members of the original development team returning to bring the story to life. A teaser trailer was released back in July, but this new video gives us another look at what we can expect to see.
Here's an overview and credit list (thanks, Gematsu):
Race through the streets of Shibuya and survive the seven-day Reapers’ Game!
Neku awakens in the middle of Shibuya’s bustling Scramble Crossing with no memory of how he got there. Little does he know he’s been transported to an alternate plane of existence known as the Underground (UG). Now an unwilling participant in the mysterious “Reapers’ Game,” Neku must partner up with a girl named Shiki in order to survive. Together, they complete missions and defeat monsters known as “Noise” as they gradually uncover the true nature of this twisted Game.
