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
Game doesn’t work anymore. Get your money back and grab a DS copy for $15 on eBay.
Game does not work on latest ios. Fix Square
I spent $17 and can’t even play the game...I’m really disappointed! I tried deleting and downloading again 3x...nothing is working! I want my money back, or the issues fixed! Never had an issue with any of the FinalFantasy games I’ve downloaded, but for whatever reason this one won’t work. Please help!
I have purchased this game in other platforms and its one of my favorites. In recently acquired an iPhone 11 pro max and decided to give it a go. The game starts, but as soon as I tap on new game a black screen takes place and nothing else happens. The game could also use a resolution update to take advantage of the bigger screen on this version of iPhone.
I was excited to see TWEWY only to see that after the intro cutscene I can no longer progress into the actual game. I really want to play the game, can someone please help :(
Every time I open it it just goes straight to a black screen
Do yourself a favor and find a DS copy. Square Enix has let this game be broken for years before, and now the game is unplayable on iOS 13.
Cutscenes do not play with IOS 13
I love this game, but because of the bug, I can't play the game. It's been like this for 2 years and nobody wants to fix it I see. Somebody post a patch for the IPhone XR
I would love to give this a chance but the game skips cutscenes on my 8plus and I’m not sure why.
