The World Ends With You is the highly acclaimed Nintendo DS RPG by Square Enix released in 2007. Having since been released on mobile devices in 2012 (iOS) and 2014 (android), in 2018 it is receiving an updated re-release for Nintendo Switch titled The World Ends With You: Final Remix.
The World Ends With You is an urban fantasy action RPG set in the modern day exploring themes of Japanese youth culture, food and fashion throughout. The Final Remix release remasters the art, remixes the music and adds a whole new scenario for players.
Here's a short description from Square:
Complete the mission...or face erasure.
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.
