Tetsuya Nomura Hints at World Ends With You Sequel

Neku's appearance in the new Kingdom Hearts game could be the start of a revival.

From the original World Ends With You.

The Tokyo Game Show trailer for Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance showed a cameo appearance from The World Ends With You main character Neku. Is this just an innocent cameo, or is Square Enix hinting at something more?

In an interview in this week's Famitsu, Tetsuya Nomura, one of the key creative forces behind the game, hints at the latter. Responding to a question about a sequel, Nomura said that Neku's appearance could be taken as notice of something to come, adding that something is being worked on.

Nomura didn't use the phrase "sequel," nor did he directly say that a new game is in the works. But we'll take his comments as an indication that one of Square Enix's most critically acclaimed games of the current generation has a good chance of seeing a revival outside of Neku's appearance in the new Kingdom Hearts.
