With Square Enix’s upcoming The World Ends with You: Final Remix just around the corner, boasting that scheduled release date of September 27 in Japan and October 12 in North America, the Japan-based gaming giant began streaming one final trailer earlier today to bring fan excitement into overdrive. Set to release exclusively on Nintendo Switch in under a month, the latest trailer gives us the rundown once more on both gameplay and characters. The “Final Trailer” can be seen below:
Originally released on the Nintendo DS in 2007, Square Enix and Jupiter’s The World Ends with You would go on to become a fan favorite amongst a dedicated community of game enthusiasts, before eventually receiving ports for iOS and Android. It wouldn’t be until 11 years after its release that the game would again surface, with the “Final Remix” of the game on Nintendo Switch set to reintroduce the title to both new fans and old fans alike. The game’s premise can be read below:
The World Ends with You tells the story of Neku Sakuraba, an unsociable 15-year-old boy who unexpectedly wakes up in the Shibuya shopping district of Tokyo, Japan. While trying to piece together his rude awakening, he receives a strange text message warning him that he will cease to exist unless he accomplishes a certain mission. Although he barely has time to grasp what is happening to him, he commences his assigned task in the mysterious streets of Shibuya. — Via IGN
