Square Enix’s fresh-faced hit The New York Times called “one of the best role playing games ever designed for anything” has busted onto iOS in a big way, with a slick and addictive new combat system, eye-popping HD art, and (of course) plenty of zetta awesome reasons for longtime fans to double dip.

Arm yourself with psychic superpowers and battle your way through a 7-day gauntlet of action: the Reaper’s Game.


THE SETUP
-------------------------------------------------
Welcome to Shibuya, a mishmash of attitudes and styles in the heart of Tokyo.

A boy named Neku wakes up in a crowded intersection, alone and unaware of how he got there. Then, he receives a weird text: “Clear this mission...or face erasure.” With that, Neku is thrust into a life-or-death Game that sends him scrambling down streets paved with one riddle after another...

What is the Reaper’s Game? Why is Neku a Player, and what is he playing for? Will the Game really end if he survives all 7 days? Another mystery is always around the corner.


THE PAYOFF
-------------------------------------------------
- Intuitive, addictive combat with a twist
Activate your combat abilities, or “psychs,” with simple touch commands like tapping, slashing, and dragging. Comfy with that? Control Neku and his Game partner on the same screen and take the combat up a notch. Like loot? Boost your item drops in battle with the revamped Fusion system.

- Deep replay value
Finish the main story to unlock a hilarious bonus chapter, more quests and items to find, new combat challenges, and secret reports that flesh out the story even more.

- Explore a living, breathing city
Neku’s sprawling world is based on the real-life Shibuya in Tokyo. Visit real locations and absorb some real Japanese culture through a hip fantasy lens.

- Redrawn art and Retina display support
Enjoy the game in full HD on your Retina-enabled iPhone 4 or later device. Art and animation across the game has been redrawn just for this release, making combat a beautiful experience. This is how all 2D classics should look.

- The ultimate soundtrack: 60 songs
Composer Takeharu Ishimoto’s complete, sonically sublime soundtrack is included right in the game with high-quality audio and full vocals, including remixes and new songs.

The World Ends with You: Solo Remix reviews and comments

Translated by

The iPad Implementation of the Nintendo DS Game The World ends with you has been absolutely awesome. The Game is as much Fun as on the DS and the Controls have been perfectly adapted to Playing with just one Display and only Touch Control. On the DS, in addition to the Touchscreen, the Keys will also be used for Control. It also seems to Me that the Soundtrack has been adapted and there are some altered and new Songs. But Can only be Imagination. It's definitely incredibly Fun to play TWEWY. Absolute Buy recommendation and worth every Penny.

I will not denigrating the undeniable qualities of TWEWY both in terms of gameplay, soundtrack, Chara-design, graphics or other. The Nintendo DS game was already perfect. On the other hand, I consider this Portage as an insult to the fans. The price of the application off balance, the fact that it is not universal, the absence of iCloud support, the lack of tracking, the upscaling of the graphics... So many negative points that make me say no. Stop basing yourself on the past notoriety and now gone and stop wanting to enjoy to the end of your fans.

Read a lot of good about the game and ended up buying without quite knowing what I would expect. Was skeptical the first half hour, but slowly but surely I was hooked. First and foremost, an incredibly creative and DEEP story is what's left, with unexpected twists all the way through, without being kleint. Is even a fan of the RPG genre, but this game was unlike anything else I've tried. Know that the price is stiff, and I agree, but it's so worth it! You owe it to yourself to try this, without a doubt the best iOS game on my iPad, and I have many. Hope now very on a sequel if Not all too long! Square Enix has really done it, here!

You hardly believe it, but there's actually a good Game for the iPad. Although the Combat System has been nicely simplified in order to function on a Screen, Square Enix has still managed a very good Port and although I have already played TWEWY several times on the DS, the Game still makes me play on the iPad. Ordinary whimsy. One can only hope that TWEWY will also be a financial Success and that other Developers will also Make an effort to develop a "real" Game for the iPas. The Hardware actually has the potential to compete with PSP and NDS. In any case, the whole €1 Dirt, which is designed only to pull the Money out of my Pocket With Microtransactions, can remain stolen from me. Unfortunately, the Game has already crashed me two times, but since in Principle it is saved after every action it is bearable in any case.
