The World Ends With You is Kingdom Hearts mastermind Tetsuya Nomura's latest entry into the videogame world, a game exclusive to the DS.

TWEWY features a unique cast of characters, the typically deep Square Enix plot and gameplay like you have never seen before. This game is truly a one hit wonder.

CHARACTERS


Neku Sakuraba (age 15)
Neku is a detached and apathetic boy who is forced to play the Game of Shinigami. He is untrusting of others, and not wanting to risk himself for other people's sake. When first introduced, Neku hated his world to the degree of wishing to be the only person in it.
His talent of tapping into people's minds to gather clues is essential to complete his ordeal in the game. His hobbies include listening to music and creating stylized graffiti. He is able to dish out attacks by using a series of badges, which can be leveled up by acquiring badge points, or BP. He is voiced by Kōki Uchiyama.



Shiki Misaki (age 15)
Shiki is a stylish girl who teams up with Neku after being forced to play the Game of Shinigami. She is outspoken and can easily befriend others. She has an avid interest in the latest fashions, and had a dream to become fashion designer. She seems to bicker quite a bit with Uzuki Yashiro, a member of the Shinigami.
Her fighting style involves magic-like attacks, performed with a sequence of Dance Dance Revolution-like combinations; her actions in battle are executed by a talking stuffed toy cat named Nyan-tan that she carries with her everywhere. Like Neku, Shiki also has psychic talent called psychokinesis, which she uses to control her toy cat during battle. She is voiced by Anna Hachimine.



"Joshua" Yoshiya Kiryu (age 15)
Yoshiya is a mysterious and self-confident boy who carries a cell phone and a gun. Instead of his given name, he prefers to call himself Joshua which according to him, was the nickname given to him by his parents. Clever and a fast thinker, he has suspicious motives.
He seems to know quite a bit about the Game of Shinigami, or, at least, more than Neku and Shiki do. In battle, he uses arrow combinations much like Shiki, but instead he uses a cell phone to type out number combinations that let him attack the Noise. He is voiced by Ryohei Kimura.



"Beat" (age 15)
Beat is a large and aggressive boy who wears contemporary street clothes and keeps his younger sister Rhyme by his side at all times. He appears to be hot-headed and stubborn, and his reasons for coming to Shibuya are a mystery. Fighting as Beat entails a similar technique to Shiki and Yoshiya but, this time around, one must match up card combinations to defeat enemies. He is voiced by Subaru Kimura.


Raimu Bit/ "Rhyme"
Raimu is a petite and optimistic young girl who never leaves her older brother Beat's side; they are even seen wearing the same hats. She is a very bright and cheery person, and is an all-out earnest girl. While she doesn't individually act as a playable character, she does however make a battle appearance as a form of summoning badge for Neku. She is voiced by Hitomi Nabatame.


STORY

Avoiding spoilers, TWEWY focuses around Neku, who awakens in the shopping district Shibuya in Japan, with no memory of his past. In his hand is a small badge with an imprint of a skull. With this badge, he is able to read into the minds of others.

All fo the above characters are in a tournament known as "Death's game" where they must battle an enemy called "Noise" which feast on people's thoughts. If they fail to play, they die at the end, simple enough. This game continues on for 3 weeks. At the end of each week the contestants must give up something valuable to them to continue on.

Those are the basics, and as much you can get without spoilers.

GAMEPLAY

The biggest aspect of any gme is the gameplay, and TWEWY is truly an innovation in this field.

Battles take place on both screens, the bottom you control Neku with the stylus. Swiping the stylus like a sword, you can attack enemies. By pressing a customized button on the top left corner of the screen activates a special attack.

Sounds like a deadly game show, Dog eat Dog meets Death Note, I guess.

I've completely revamped the first post in this topic so that this game may be a little easier to discuss for those who have never heard of it. >__>

He means in America, Teej. Not everyone is obsessed enough to capable of preordering SquEnix-made games from Japan.

I was referring to this bit. The DS was an exclusive and I BELIEVE they have stopped selling them with the game.

Well, according to EGM's rumor mill, Nomura has plans to release this game stateside.


Yes, it's a RUMOR mill, but these were the first people to tell us we'd be getting 3 Kingdom Hearts spin-off games, so I'll bite for now.

I'm sure Teej knows already, but just in case, Squeenix just made a press release talking about the game's US release this Spring.

It's been retitled to "The World Ends With You"...I'm not sure how to feel about that. XD

I'll be sure to give it a look-see, though. It seems fairly stylish and I'm sure it doesn't disappoint.

EDIT: My mistake, no US release. It's for PAL territories. Guess you'll have to pay a few extra bucks for shipping across the pond.

I like how the new title is the opposite of the old one.

This topic has been revived, and the first post has been cleaned up.


This comes out the 22nd in the US, so I'm hoping to get some discussion going this time. >_>

Well, I'd imagine it'll be pretty good, but I haven't seen anything yet to really convince me.


Nothing is foolproof to a truly talented fool.

Sorry, MegaMan, but it looks like you
might be stuck up there for a little while more... Actually... at this rate... you may NEVER come down!!! *sob*

Aha. I need a buttload of fun DS games to play when I venture to Japan this summer. Apparently flying from Chicago, Illinois to Tokyo, Japan isn't the shortest plane ride.

But getting back on subject, this game looks fun. [=
