Square Enix’s underrated 2007 DS RPG, The World Ends With You, is now avalible for download from the Apple App store! This is fantastic news, as TWEWY is an outstanding game that was sadly overlooked by many, mainly because A: It was a Square-Enix game not called Final Fantasy, and B: it had a very different vibe to it that alot of people could not get past. Its a shame, because if you take the time to get to know the game, you will find one of the most in depth games I have come across. The battle system was unique, and the sheer amount of gameplay variety and things to do was mind boggling for a handheld game.
It now comes to us slightly re-worked as the game was designed for the dual screen Nintendo DS, a few liberties had to be made, instead of controlling one character via the touch screen and another with the D-Pad, you now just control one, with the other as a summon-able assist. Other than that the game nigh on identical to the DS original, with a few updates made here or there to improve a few things.
The only negative to this is possibly the price, at $17.99 for the iPhone version, and $19.99 for the iPad version, its a bit steeper than you may be expecting, but still less pricey than the original DS version, and seeing as this is one of the most in depth games I’ve played, id say well worth the investment.
Here’s a trailer to show you just how awesome it really is!
