Final Remix will contain everything that the original TWEWY did, as well as an expansion to the game in the form of a “sizable new scenario that gets right to the heart of the story,” potentially addressing certain aspects of the original game’s story that weren’t fully explored or explained. The game also features the redone hand-drawn versions of the original game’s pixelated sprites, originally seen in the mobile port The World Ends With You: Solo Remix, and will allow the player to control the game using either the original touch screen controls or a new Joy-Con control scheme.

For those who missed out on the original over 10 years ago, The World Ends With You is an action-RPG co-developed by Square Enix and Jupiter Corporation, who are most well known for their work on Pokémon Pinball and numerous Picross titles. The game stars a teenage boy named Neku, who is drawn against his will into a mysterious challenge gauntlet that involves him and a handful of other kids being forced to fight for their lives while slowly uncovering the mystery of the game’s malevolent benefactor. The game was highly praised upon release for its unique control scheme, intriguing plot, and wholly unique and punkish graphics and music.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix is planned for release some time in 2018. You can watch the brief segment of the Mini Nintendo Direct announcing the game below:

I'm mostly into Platformers and RPG's, but I'll try pretty much anything once, and I'm also trying to find something different and interesting to play, and then share with as many people as I can.
