Neo: The World Ends With You Preorders Are Mistakenly Giving Early Access To The Game
The latest gaming ‘whoopsie’ comes to us from the folks over at Square Enix, which has accidentally allowed access to Neo: The World Ends With You almost two full weeks prior to the game’s release date. Though officially releasing on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on July 27, some of those that have preordered the physical version of the game through the Square Enix store have received digital activation codes for the Nintendo Switch that provide early access to the game.
The news comes by way of Wario64, who reported on the mishap following news from other social media users that they had received access to Neo: The World Ends With You ten days prior to the game’s official release date. At the time of publishing this workaround is no longer available, as reports have now confirmed that Square Enix has either run out of codes or has stopped distributing them out to those that preordered the physical version of the game on Nintendo Switch.
Seems like Square Enix accidentally gave out digital codes of NEO: The World Ends With You for Switch and is downloadable/playable now according to reports. Supposedly still gives you a code now, YMMV. Game is ~$80 after shipping https://t.co/odZIMGZY6Ghttps://t.co/LWEKbzKr7k https://t.co/UiLVTn7k1U

According to NintendoLife, preordering the physical version of the game on the Square Enix store was supposed to provide purchasers with a code for preorder bonuses. The code instead provided access to the entire game early, which is…something. Either way, please keep in mind that spoilers for Neo: The World Ends With You are now out in the wild prior to the title’s official release date, so browse the internet with caution.
Neo: The World Ends With You is slated to release on July 27, 2021 for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
