The World Ends with You: Solo Remix App Details

SUPPORTED DEVICES iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, iPhone6 plus and 5th generation iPod touch (excluding 16 GB models). iOS 5.1.1 or later is required. 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 VERDICT ------------------------------------------------- Praise for the original The World Ends with You: “Compelling and immaculately presented...from start to finish” – Gamespot “Nails just about everything it tries – and it tries quite a lot” – IGN AU “Full of mysteries and surprises, interesting characters” – The New York Times “A compelling risk/reward system that...amply blesses the daring” – 1UP “Ice-cool artwork...impossibly catchy soundtrack” – Eurogamer “Games rarely have things this interesting to say” – G4TV DS Best RPG/Best Story/Best New IP and DS Game of the Year – IGN

    My homies, this is a good heckin' game. Definitely easier than the original ds version, but who owns those anymore? Anyways, the controls are tight (except scratch commands, never figured those out). Pictures look kinda grainy sometimes, probably because it was ported. Gotta say though, the story is really good, and the ending made me cry my eyes out
  • Great game if you havent played the OG DS version

  • Need to implement a Progress Save system for iCloud or Game Center.

    I lost my DS or my cousin stole it... anyways I’ve been waiting a very very long time to finish this game. I used to think about it all the time and contemplated buying a DS just to finish it up. I had reached the final boss, and I never got the chance to see the end because... well I just said it! Anyways, super happy I purchased this. Super happy that I stayed up until 5 am to finish the game. It took me around two-three days to get through the whole thing. I really wish this would have been made into a manga or an anime, definitely would have rocked my world. But I guess from what I read it didn’t do too well in Japan. As for the game play, I loved how everything was so nice and simple for the most part. My only issue is all the different movements you have to do on the screen with your finger tips because of the different pins, sometimes they just don’t work or you have to do it over and over and so that stopped me from using certain pins just so I could battle faster and not worry about annoying pins. Also, working with Shiki was GREAT, working with Joshua was also simple, but the controls for Beat really need some work... like REALLY badly. Summoning him into battle and even pressing down during the final boss, it DOES NOT work. Other than that... IM SO HAPPY!!!! Definitely one of my favorite games of all time.
  • Great, but sadly the original is better.

    The game feels right at home on the IOS, and the changes to the combat are great, but they make the game a very different beast than the DS version, which emphasized multitasking. The game’s graphics are crisp and clean, at times perhaps too much so, that the game feels slightly “off” in some way. The remastered tracks are great, and the new music is just as good, but the placement of said music is absolutely horrible at times, with the game often playing tunes that just don’t fit. A solid game, but not as good as the original, which is sad because it could have been great with a bit more polish.
  • Completely Worth It

    If you are looking for a game that has great gameplay, an amazing plot, and tons of replay value, then this is the game for you. I have already put 40+ hours into this game and still haven't gotten everything. Only thing I could wish for is a sequel, but even without one, there is nearly endless gameplay with over 100 different pins to use. Only negative is that the restore IAP button doesn’t restore IAP purchases. Will rate 5 stars if fixed.
  • IPHONE X SUPPORT!!!!!!!!!!

    Great game so far, but I noticed the sound cuts off a lot. Needs a iOS 11 update and a iPhone X support.

    I bought this game when it first came out for the DS years ago and was ecstatic when I found out this was released for mobile. The story elements are all the same and they revamped the fighting to be better suited for one screen. The graphics are slightly improved from 8-bit to a smoother appearance. HOWEVER. This mobile port is not without its annoyances: when I first started the game, none of the extra sound effects (voice exclamations during scenes and fighting, the little “tick” noise after text bubbles) disappeared. I’d close out the app and open it up again and 1 of 3 things could happen at any given restart: the voice acting and extra sound effects were restored, or they were not, or the voice acting was there and the background music was not. If the music and characters weren’t such an integral part of this gameplay experience, this wouldn’t bother me, but alas, they are. Sometimes push notifications from my other apps will pop up and I accidentally leave this game, resulting in the same glitches when I come back. Pile this on with the autosave feature and sometimes there are whole cutscenes I’ll have to repeat again. Additional gameplay bug: Neku is supposed to have a dodge feature when you swipe over him during a fight, but this often registers as a pin attack and I often get attacked instead of dodging like I wanted. This last complaint isn’t that bad considering this was somewhat of a problem in the DS version too, however. All in all, I’d say this revamp of one of my all time favorite games is still worth it and fun to play. But you’ll need some serious patience when the music and sound effects can’t keep up.
