'The World Ends With You' sequel? Yes please!

Remember that awesome DS game back in 2007 that everyone was talking about? Yes, it was The World Ends With You by the world-famous Square Enix. The game featured an interesting gameplay mechanic that was never seen before on a portable console. Taking advantage of the Nintendo DS's two screens, the gameplay involved the player mashing buttons for the top screen as well as swiping crazily on the bottom all whilst managing health, attack, and evasion of the two characters on both screens respectively. It was a crazy, all-out game that just made you look cool whilst playing.

No one expected a sequel to appear. However, in the light of Nintendo's latest release of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, the game featured many of our beloved characters from TWEWY. Thus, with this taste of wonderfulness, rumours began to arise as to whether such a sequel would be made.


A if on cue, Square Enix abruptly activated what seems to be a teaser website for a unsuspectingly TWEWY sequel. The game isn't explicitly name checked but everything about the teaser site points towards 2007's acclaimed action RPG, from the font used for the countdown clock, to the music and the silhouetted cityscape of Shibuya. At the bottom of the page, it even says the character design by Tetsuya Nomura and Gen Kobayashi – the two artists who worked on the original title, as well as Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy franchises.

What does this tell you?

A TWEWY sequel will be coming soon? Hopefully so. Until that day comes, we have to wait eagerly for the countdown timer to reach 0.
