The World Ends With You: Final Remix, the port of the Nintendo DS classic action-RPG, is coming on October 12. Nintendo announced the release date alongside a new trailer for the update, which includes HD visuals, new content, and gameplay tweaks.
Final Remix lets you use the original touch controls or a new Joy-Con option. It also includes a whole new story scenario for longtime fans who want to sink their teeth into something fresh. The visuals have also been overhauled to take advantage of modern HD hardware.
TWEWY was highly regarded as an instant classic when it released in 2007, introducing a stylized world set in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, Japan. The combat had a flair of its own, thanks to highly customizable pins to tailor your own moves, and it was topped off with a memorable soundtrack. GameSpot’s original The World Ends With You review gave it a 9/10. This is the second port, following a mobile “Solo Remix” that hit iOS and Android in 2012 and 2014, respectively.
“Flawless presentation, gameplay depth, an engaging story, and innovation all add up to make The World Ends With You a worthy addition to the already-impressive pantheon of Square Enix works,” said Randolph Ramsey. “There’s very little to complain about in this package, which makes The World Ends With You a must-have for any DS owner needing an RPG fix.”
