Nintendo has announced that The World Ends With You: Final Remix is headed to Nintendo Switch on 12th October in both North America and Europe.
Initially announced in a Nintendo Direct Mini back in January this year, The World Ends With You: Final Remix is a – erm, remix – of the original which was released on Nintendo DS a decade ago. This RPG with an urban twist is set to make full use of the Switch’s capabilities, with options for both touchscreen control and Joy-Con usage, and this new version will boast HD visuals, enhanced gameplay, and exclusive new content. Here’s some additional information provided in the game’s latest press release:
Complete the mission…or face erasure. That’s all Neku knows after regaining consciousness in the middle of a busy intersection without his memories. Now he and his partner must fight to survive a life-or-death game in this twisted tale with more turns than the urban labyrinth of Tokyo they’re trapped in. This definitive version of SQUARE ENIX’s RPG classic brings the dark story to life on the Nintendo Switch system along with a new scenario and some new remixed music.
Vibrant themes of Japanese youth culture, food and fashion are seamlessly integrated into the gameplay and storyline. Players can join rhythmic battles using either Joy-Con controllers or the Nintendo Switch touch screen. In two-player co-op mode, players can battle Noise and challenge the Reapers’ Game together.
