The World Ends With You Announced For iOS, to be Released Tomorrow

After a countdown timer appeared on a mysterious Square Enix page, rumors circulated that the end result was going to be a port of their acclaimed DS RPG The World Ends With You to iOS devices… and once the countdown was over, it would appear that those rumors were correct. Starting tomorrow, The World Ends With You will appear on both iPhone/iPod Touch for $17.99, and iPad for $19.99. While twenty bucks is in line with Square Enix’s insane pricing structure for iOS, at least this isn’t a fifteen year old game you can get on other platforms for nearly half the cost, and they’ve actually gone through the trouble of updating the game for the iPad’s retina display. New features include:

  • Updated battle system
  • Redrawn HD graphics that take advantage of the Retina display
  • New bonus chapter
  • Tin Pin Slammer Mini-game that interacts with other players
  • Full soundtrack with new songs and remixes
  • Integrate Twitter into game, and wirelessly trade friend cards

This was a game I wished I had spent more time with than I did, and considering the fact that the game still retails for around $20, it’s actually not that bad of a deal with all of the new features they’ve added to an already enormous and well-crafted game. I may end up taking the plunge tomorrow when it releases on all iOS devices. Take a look at the website for more details about this unique RPG.

I've been gaming since my dad made the bad decision of buying me a Nintendo when I was four years old. Every day I'd find myself with my face glued to a TV screen, punching away at buttons, getting furious with Bowser, Dr. Wily, and those freakin' birds in Ninja Gaiden. Since then I have failed to get my parents to play any board game with me, I sold my full copy of Earthbound with box and guide for $300 to some dude in Austria for rent money, and I still believe in Nintendo even after all these years.
