The Nintendo DS cult classic The World Ends With You is getting a second lease on life with the Nintendo Switch-exclusive Final Remix, due out on September 27th. With a new scenario, new music, and new ways to play the game on Switch, there's a lot to look forward to in Final Remix. You can find a whole bunch of new screenshots in our updated gallery, but read on to find out more about whats new in this version.
Welcome to Shibuya, a mishmash of attitudes and styles in the heart of Tokyo.
A boy named Neku wakes up in a crowded intersection with no idea how he got there. As he fumbles with a pin he found in his hand, he realizes he can hear other people’s thoughts.
Before he can make any sense of it, he receives a baffling text: “Clear this mission or face erasure.” Suddenly, a countdown appears in the pal mof his hand, and strange monsters—the Noise—attack.
In the confusion, he meets a girl named Shiki, who insists on teaming up. So begins their mad scramble as they fight off the Noise and try to survive seven days in the Reapers’ Game…
One thing immediately noticeable about Final Remix are its higher-resolution graphics when compared to the Nintendo DS original. The Nintendo Switch offers a variety of control options players can take advantage of: in handheld mode, the game uses the same touch controls as the DS version, while in TV or table mode, players use the Joy-Cons. You an even use a single Joy-Con each for two-player co-op.
A new scenario featuring additional Reapers and Noise has also been added. Composer Takeharu Ishimoto has been brought back on to record new music and rearrangements to complement this new edition. Players will have the option to switch between the original and arranged music, as well as change the difficulty in the main menu.
