Nintendo has updated their official Youtube channel with a teaser for The World Ends with You: Final Remix. For those who aren’t aware the game is a HD port of The World Ends with You game that was was released for the Nintendo DS in 2007. The World Ends with You was developed by the team that helped create Kingdom Hearts with the help of Jupiter.
Nintendo provided an official description for the game.
That’s all Neku knows after regaining consciousness in the middle of a busy intersection without his memories. Now he and his partner must fight to survive a life-or-death game in this twisted tale with more turns than the urban labyrinth of Tokyo they’re trapped in. This definitive version of Square Enix’s RPG classic brings the dark story to life on the Nintendo Switch system along with a new scenario and some killer, new remixed music.
In the crowded chaos of Tokyo, players of the Reapers’ Game must complete daily missions or face total erasure. Neku might not be enthusiastic about forging relationships, but with his very life on the line, he’ll need to learn how to work together with a partner—and fast: they only have seven days. Gear up with stat-enhancing threads and collect mysterious pins to unleash psychic abilities in battle. Take control of real-time, action-fueled RPG battles using touch controls or Joy-Con™ controllers. The definitive version of this modern classic is finally here.
The original Nintendo DS game featured a battle system called the “Stride Cross Battle System,” which allowed the player to control the main character Neku on the touchscreen while their partner fought on the top screen. Enemies would coexist between the different “zones,” which was represented on both screens.
This version will feature a new control system adapted for the Nintendo Switch. Players will be able to use a single Joy-Con to control the game or utilize the Nintendo Switch’s touch screen. This version of the will also include a new scenario not present in the original game.
The World Ends with You: Final Remix will released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on September 27 in Japan and on October 12 worldwide.
