SUPPORTED DEVICES iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, iPhone6 plus and 5th generation iPod touch (excluding 16 GB models). iOS 5.1.1 or later is required. Square Enix's fresh-faced hit The New York Times called “one of the best role playing games ever designed for anything” has busted onto iOS in a big way, with a slick and addictive new combat system, eye-popping HD art, and (of course) plenty of zetta awesome reasons for longtime fans to double dip. Arm yourself with psychic superpowers and battle your way through a 7-day gauntlet of action: the Reaper’s Game. THE SETUP ------------------------------------------------- Welcome to Shibuya, a mishmash of attitudes and styles in the heart of Tokyo. A boy named Neku wakes up in a crowded intersection, alone and unaware of how he got there. Then, he receives a weird text: “Clear this mission...or face erasure.” With that, Neku is thrust into a life-or-death Game that sends him scrambling down streets paved with one riddle after another... What is the Reaper’s Game? Why is Neku a Player, and what is he playing for? Will the Game really end if he survives all 7 days? Another mystery is always around the corner. THE PAYOFF ------------------------------------------------- - Intuitive, addictive combat with a twist Activate your combat abilities, or “psychs,” with simple touch commands like tapping, slashing, and dragging. Comfy with that? Control Neku and his Game partner on the same screen and take the combat up a notch. Like loot? Boost your item drops in battle with the revamped Fusion system. - Deep replay value Finish the main story to unlock a hilarious bonus chapter, more quests and items to find, new combat challenges, and secret reports that flesh out the story even more. - Explore a living, breathing city Neku’s sprawling world is based on the real-life Shibuya in Tokyo. Visit real locations and absorb some real Japanese culture through a hip fantasy lens. - Redrawn art and Retina display support Enjoy the game in full HD on your Retina-enabled iPhone 4 or later device. Art and animation across the game has been redrawn just for this release, making combat a beautiful experience. This is how all 2D classics should look. - The ultimate soundtrack: 60 songs Composer Takeharu Ishimoto’s complete, sonically sublime soundtrack is included right in the game with high-quality audio and full vocals, including remixes and new songs. THE VERDICT ------------------------------------------------- Praise for the original The World Ends with You: “Compelling and immaculately presented...from start to finish” – Gamespot “Nails just about everything it tries – and it tries quite a lot” – IGN AU “Full of mysteries and surprises, interesting characters” – The New York Times “A compelling risk/reward system that...amply blesses the daring” – 1UP “Ice-cool artwork...impossibly catchy soundtrack” – Eurogamer “Games rarely have things this interesting to say” – G4TV DS Best RPG/Best Story/Best New IP and DS Game of the Year – IGN
Or the best one out of the three. TWEWY is an amazing game and story. If you have a chance to play it you should! The story is interesting and the location of Shibuya comes alive. On why this is the best version of the game: I have played this game on all systems it has come on. •The DS graphics are just a little tired and needing to “mingle” with other people IRL playing it for LVing up certain pins makes it hard and time consuming. (But it can be done given just lots of time waiting) And sometimes playing on both screens doing different things can give you a headache. Over all though it’s a lot of fun. •This app has updated graphics and increased the storyline a little. All the pins still LV up in the same way as before. When you need to “mingle” just play TinPin Slammer. I find this to be the easiest of all the versions to play overall. However this app did stop working a few years ago after a iOS update and it took SquareEnix months to get it working again. But this is also the cheapest of all the versions as well. I don’t think that will happen again however. •The Switch version of TWEWY is the newest but uses the same graphics as the app. (Its mainly a port of the app with another small epilogue added to hint at another game that may or may not come) It also changes how you LV up certain pins by totally removing “mingle” points. Not a difficult thing to deal with but it is worth mentioning. The problem with the Switch version of this game is the controls. None of them want to work! Touchscreen works the most like the older versions. Trying to used a controller means only using 1 and motion control which is a little wonky. Switch is also currently the most expensive. I hope this helps other people decide what version of this wonderful game they want to play.
But this version is missing a lot and I know that the mobile version is not supposed to look like this. I’m missing basically every cutscene in the game and even redownloading the app didn’t work. It’s a shame because I’ve been very interested in playing the game for so long only to pay almost $20.00 for an incomplete version.
The graphics are crisp and clear and it’s easier to play now that you can just control both characters on the same screen. Doesn’t lag and the sound is as great as ever!! A+
I REALLY wanna play this game again. I played it years ago and I wanted to play it again but the app isn’t optimized for iPhone XS. If your gonna keep it on the market for $20 then update it.
Bought this for the iphone, recently got an iPad and I have to buy it again?! Screw you!!!
Don’t waste your money with the Switch remix, grab this version and you’ll be set. Story and my experience went great, would recommend to friends and Square Enix fans!
Gotta update it to support iPhone xs and xa max
It’s great, but please make the app fitter screens of the iPhone X, XS, XS Max, and XR.
app is almost $20 it deserves at least a yearly update. PLEASE UPDATE FOR NEW IPHONE SCREENS
one of the best games on the app store, well worth the price.
