“The World Ends with You: Final Remix” coming to Nintendo Switch in October
On Tuesday, Nintendo announced that The World Ends with You: Final Remix is scheduled for release on October 12 for the Nintendo Switch.
The World Ends with You was first released for the Nintendo DS in 2007 where it didn’t achieve great sales success, but it was critically well-received and managed to develop a dedicated fan base. This updated Final Remix version on the Switch features enhanced graphics, new story content, and other updated features.
The World Ends with You is an action role-playing game starring Neku, a Japanese teen trapped in an alternate dimension parallel to real-world locations in urban Tokyo. Neku partners up with several different characters, each with their own abilities. Players battle by simultaneously controlling both Neku and his current partner, all in the hopes of escaping the parallel world.
Having played the original release of The World Ends with You on Nintendo DS, I found the stylish presentation and mechanics of the game to be very enjoyable, even while using the touch screen controls. It was a bit too long for my tastes, but my general feeling is that most RPGs overstay their welcome, so take that for what it’s worth.
There’s also an iOS port of the original game titled The World Ends with You: Solo Remix, so go ahead and try that one out if you’re a fan of crying and cutting yourself. That particular mistake will cost you $17.99.
The World Ends with You: Final Remix is developed by Square Enix and is scheduled for release on Nintendo Switch on October 12.
