The World Ends with You director has unfinished business with the series

The World Ends with You: Solo Remix iPhone, thumbnail 1I stayed up pretty late waiting for the announcement from this mysterious website. Eventually I fell asleep and the next morning I was greeted with a big surprise. However, what a shock it was! Like me, a number of fans were left disappointed by the announcement that Square Enix's The World Ends with You (TWEWY) was being ported across to iOS rather than gaining a sequel. However it may come as some relief to hear that the game's director has more to reveal in the future.

In an interview with Japanese video game magazine Famitsu, Squeenix's Tatsuya Kando answered a few questions on the iOS version of TWEWY, subtitled Solo Remix, then left a mysterious message to the fans:

"Solo Remix is a game with such a high level of completion that you won't feel that it's a port. If you play it and post tweets to Twitter, the world will expand even further.

"We're working on a variety of other things, but first please enjoy Solo Remix."

It's anyone's guess as to what the "variety of other things" will actually be, but I am hoping for a sequel to the original The World Ends with You game! What about you?
