Bullet Hell "NeverAwake" Haunts Xbox Series X|S in the Second Quarter!

TOKYO – Mar. 21, 2023 – NeverAwake, the twin-stick shoot’em up set in the world of a young girl’s horrifying dreams from developer Neotro Inc and publisher Phoenixx, continues the nightmare on Xbox consoles in Q2 2023.

Enter the subconscious realm of unlucky school girl Rem, whose deepest fears become her reality. Unable to awaken from her slumber, face off against the manifestations of her childhood phobias.

Equip armaments and upgrades to create epic attack patterns, then blast bad dreams while bobbing and weaving through enemy fire including dozens of terrifying bosses.

NeverAwake on Xbox will include the latest 1.1 content update featuring the secret HIMITSU CHALLENGE after clearing world 8, plus six new reality-bending accessories alongside gameplay optimizations and balance adjustments.
