With the aforementioned countdown coming a close, the news is out that The World Ends With You will be getting an iOS version, subtitled Solo Remix. Curiously, this was leaked before the countdown had finished, by way of an accidental e-shop listing for the soundtrack. Hopes for a sequel remain tragically unfulfilled for now.
The port itself is available now, priced at ¥2000/$19.99 on iPad and ¥1800/$17.99 on iPhone. New music is included in the game, alongside arranged tracks from Kingdom Hearts 3D.
The latest tease circling the web is that The World Ends With You may be getting a sequel. Square Enix has launched an unspecified teaser site, on which is a countdown clock that rolls over on Monday the 26th. What may link the two is the phrase “Subaseka,” a possible shorthand for the Japanese title of TWEWY.
Naturally this is just a guess until told otherwise, but Square Enix did indicate the game in question would feature character designs from Tetsuya Nomura and Gen Kobayashi. Nomura also previously indicated the series had a future when asked about TWEWY cameos in Kingdom Hearts 3D.
For the curious, the teaser site is located here.
