SuperGroupies reveals The World Ends With You merch

The World Ends With You is having a real resurgence lately. Fans begged for more of the franchise for years, which lead to mobile ports of the original game, and then a Switch revamp. That was followed by the announcement and reveal of The World Ends With You: The Animation, an anime slated for 2021. Now we have even more TWEWY goodness with a new merch line from SuperGroupies.

SuperGroupies has revealed a line of The World Ends With You merch that includes multiple variations on backpacks, watches, and wallets. You can preorder the items now, with bags and wallets due to ship out in Nov. 2020, and watches sometime in Dec. 2020. Check out the various designs here.

Concept artist for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker says a set piece for Babu Frik was inspired by the Game Boy

Babu loves portable power

Concept artist Matthew Savage did some work for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker , including a bit of set piece design for the character Babu Frik. Savage took to Instagram to show off some of the design docs he had for Frik's workshop, and it includes an interesting tidbit for Nintendo fans.

According to Savage, one of the computer pieces designed drew inspiration from none other than the Game Boy. In the Instagram post above, you can see a wide-shot of Frik's workshop setup, which features the Game Boy-style device on the left-hand side of the piece. If you click over to the next picture, you get an even better look at the computer tech, which makes it much easier to see its Game Boy origins.

While you might not make the Game Boy connection at first glance, hearing the story from Savage makes the inspiration a lot easier to see.

Suda51 breaks down his design philosophy

A master at work

Suda51 has to be one of the most unique and interesting developers out there. He always does things his own way, and creates games that sometimes come off as completely off-the-wall. Whether you love or hate his work, there's no denying that he's dedicated to his craft.

In a new video feature, Suda51 shares some insight into his design process. As you might expect, some of it is a bit out there, but that's what makes it great. To enjoy the video, make sure you turn YouTube's closed captions on.

Character art released for The World Ends With You: The Animation

Last night, we got to see the debut trailer for The World Ends With You: The Animation, a 3DCG anime that will see worldwide release in 2021. That's quite a way's off, but at least we have some more content to look at right now.

The official website for The World Ends With You: The Animation has added character profiles for the series, which gives us some character art to enjoy. Take a look at the various character profiles here.

Better make some room on your shelves!

A new wave of gaming-related figurines have been revealed, including the prototype for Good Smile Company's upcoming Splatoon 2 Pearl and Marina figmas. While it would be nice to see the final, painted version, these prototypes still give us a nice idea of the detail going into this release. They're looking pretty great so far!

We also got pictures of some other figurines coming up, including one for Vaklyria Chronicles 4's Crymaria Levin, plus Monster Hunter, Nekopara, and Amaterasu nendoroids. You can check out the full gallery for all those and more Pearl and Marina pics here.

The World Ends With You: The Animation launches worldwide in 2021 and will be 3DCG, debut trailer shared

The world ends in 2021

Anime Expo Lite kicked off with the reveal of The World Ends With You: The Animation, which was announced for worldwide release in 2021. Domerica is working on the project, and they've revealed that it's a 3DCG project, rather than just straightforward 2D animation. It was also mentioned that Takeharu Ishimoto, composer on The World Ends With You, is handling the music for the anime. Along with that, Tetsuya Norma will be involved as well. You can check out the official synopsis below.

Make your way through “Shibuya” and survive the seven-day “Reaper’s Game”!

The main character Neku wakes up in the middle of a busy Shibuya Crossing Intersection unaware of how he got there.
He’s in an alternate plane of existence called the Underground (UG).

Unknowingly forced to participate in the “Reaper’s Game”, Neku must partner with Shiki, a teenage girl player whom he meets.

Neku must fight to survive by completing the missions thrown at him and defeating the creatures called “Noise.” By doing so, he will confront the “Reaper’s Game” along with the truth buried deep inside his memory.

“The only way to survive is to trust your partner”

Will they survive the “Reaper’s Game”…?
