In the last few hours, the game NEO: The World Ends With You was the protagonist of a “Curious event”, since the title was “released” by Square Enix in advance and absolutely so abnormal, only for some users who had pre-ordered it and now have a chance to try it 10 days before of the official release in stores.
Let’s talk about the full version of the game, and it seems gods are also present additional booking codes. The episode seems to have occurred exclusively for specific players who had pre-ordered it on the Nintendo Switch, in physical format, and then they were sent an email with the game code by mistake.
Obviously the somewhat enigmatic situation lasted very little, and after a few hours it seems that Square Enix has taken countermeasures, given that many reports on Twitter claim that even those who have received the code early game will no longer be able to redeem it ahead of time.
View the upcoming release of the title, we obviously urge players to pay attention to potential web spoilers that could rage from now on.
We leave you the tweet that reports the ResetEra thread regarding the matter below:
a couple reports saying Square Enix ran out of codes or isn’t distributing codes anymore. buyer beware https://t.co/TpbtxjJ9vg

It appears that Square Enix accidentally released the digital codes of NEO: The World Ends With You for Switch and it is now downloadable / playable, (at least) according to reports. (…)
A couple of reports claim that Square Enix has run out of codes or no longer distributes them. (careful user!)
After all, this is unfortunately not the first case in which some players they manage to grab a digital copy of the game even long before its release.
We recall, for example, the information leak of The Last of us Part 2, although we must obviously specify that here there does not seem to be any case of malice as happened for TLOU, therefore the lucky owners of the game copy do not seem to have any responsibility, which at present seems to be entirely of Square Enix.
Despite this, even those who have not received the game in advance will not have to wait long since, as already mentioned, NEO: The World Ends With You will be available in just 10 days. The game is then a product quite promising and certainly also highly anticipated by fans, who are waiting for it after more than a decade from the first game on the Nintendo DS.
Moreover, net of some doubts that have arisen in the preview phase, the title of Square has nevertheless shown various positive points under test, and which we let you consult for more details in our full article.
The title therefore promises a very interesting narrative incipit since we are talking about an adventure set in the Japanese city of Shibuya which suddenly becomes the theater of a very strange and sick person “game” which obliges the participants to challenge terrible creatures for climb the leaderboard of the best fighters around, even at the risk of their own lives.
A title in short, to keep an eye on in the near future given the imminent release date scheduled for July 27, 2021 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC.
