Do you like Shibuya? Do you like RPGs set in Shibuya? Are you willing to accept "urban fantasy" as, if not a genre, then at least a milieu?
Square Enix's cult classic modern RPG The World Ends With You has returned to the iOS App Store after a four month absence.
The World Ends with You: Solo Remix - the mobile port of Square-Enix's quirky, futuristic DS action-RPG from 2008 - has finally launched on Android.
Quirky Japanese role-playing game The World Ends With You launches on iOS this year, Square Enix has revealed.
Cult DS adventure The World Ends With You could soon be getting some kind of follow-up, judging by a tease from co-creator Tetsuya Nomura.
Speaking in an interview with Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream, as translated by Andriasang, Nomura cryptically pointed out that publisher Square-Enix decided to add voice acting to lead character Raimu for her cameo in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance "out of consideration of the future of The World Ends With You series."
When asked what he had planned for the franchise in the future, Nomura replied, "Regarding The World Ends With You, I can't say anything at present... (laughs). But there probably is something."
Tongue-twistingly named Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance will include characters from fellow Square Enix role-player The World Ends With You.
Dream Drop Distance, the latest RPG in the Disney and Square Enix mashup series, features DS The World Ends With You heroes Joshua and Beat, according to Japanese magazine V-Jump.
The game also boasts a world based on the Three Musketeers.
Kingdom Hearts main man Tetsuya Nomura has hinted at a sequel to cult classic 2008 Nintendo DS game The World Ends With You.
Neku, the main character from the quirky role-playing game, makes a cameo appearance in the Tokyo Game Show trailer for Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, and Nomura told Japanese magazine Famitsu (via Andriasang) something TWEWY related is being worked on.
Nomura added that Neku's appearance could be taken as notice of something to come, but he didn't use the word "sequel".
Square Enix has announced plans to release The World Ends With You in Europe on 18th April.
