The World Ends With You: Final Remix Announced

This morning, Nintendo released a new Nintendo Direct Mini that was packed full of reveals and news for upcoming Nintendo Switch titles. To begin the presentation, Nintendo revealed The World Ends With You: Final Remix, a remaster of Square Enix’s Nintendo DS cult-classic RPG coming ten years after the original game released.

According to the developers, this version of The World Ends With You comes with updated HD visuals and a brand new epilogue that will “shed new light” on the game’s already awesome story. As for controls, players will be able to use either the Joy-Cons or the touch screen to make their way through the game.

The original title on the Nintendo DS can be challenging especially for left-handed people, so it is nice to see that the controls may become slightly more accommodating between versions. The World Ends With You was one of the most highly praised titles on Nintendo DS, but the IP has gone seemingly unnoticed by Square Enix since its release for the most part. Hopefully, if The World Ends With You: Final Remix does well, the series’ future prospects will be better.

You can check out the trailer for the game that was revealed at Nintendo Direct Mini at the top of this post, courtesy of GameXplain. The World Ends With You: Final Remix is poised to release on Nintendo Switch sometime later this year.


Pokdepinion: Well, I certainly was not expecting this but then again, it is perfect for the Nintendo Switch’s technology so why not? I’m sure plenty of fans of the series will be superbly excited for the game’s release…or have suddenly found a reason to adopt the new console.
