The World Ends With You will be one of the marquee releases of fall for Nintendo. Announced in January, The World Ends With You: Final Remix launches on the Nintendo Switch on October 12.
Celebrating the release date announcement is one sweet trailer, reminding everyone that The World Ends With You retains its spot as the most stylish Square Enix games ever, even a decade later. First released on the Nintendo DS focuses on Neku, a disaffected youth, who has been roped into a strange contest known as the Reapers' Game.
Things get a lot more complicated from there, and Neku must reluctantly partner with other teens and form begrudging alliances to overcome the Reapers' challenges. With its bold colors, great fashion and stylish character designs, The World Ends With You became a cult favorite and has been ported to iOS and Android in the years since its release.
The World Ends With You also features a unique combat system that emphasizes rhythm and pattern matching. The Switch version leans into this aspect of the game by letting players use the Joy-Con controllers or touchscreen to sync to the beat.
As the name suggests, The World Ends With You: Final Remix will feature remixed music. An additional scenario and new characters should add a welcome twist to those like me who have already played the game before. There will also be a two player co-op mode that capitalizes on the partnership aspect of the game's fiction.
All told, The World Ends With You: Final Remix marks the return of one of Square Enix's most original titles in its history.
