Description

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

    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.
  • Screw Square Enix

    Wish it could be widescreen, also have smoother controls when fighting. First time playing it I love the story, characters, gameplay, just needs a little upgrade
  • Great game, needs iCloud and iPhone X support!

    Two things stop this from being rated higher for me. Firstly, this is a fantastic game and I am glad it is available on iOS. However, it needs to be updated to support the X and XS’ larger display... even if that’s just a border like Capcom has done with some of their premium games. Secondly, a premium game at this cost needs to support iCloud. Especially an RPG. If you fix these two things I will happily raise my score Square-Enix!
