Square Enix Cuts Price For THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU: SOLO REMIX in App Store

Posted on August 5, 2013 at 11:02 am by Amanda Andonian


You guys remember The World Ends With You? It’s an amazing Japanese RPG for the Nintendo DS that came out in 2008 to great critical acclaim for its story, game mechanics, and artwork. Oh, did I mention the music is awesome too? Yeah, this game literally has everything.

A little over a year ago, Square Enix redesigned the game for release on iOS, making it widely available to anyone with an iPhone. Of course it was a hugely successful push, but the downside? The app cost a whopping $17.99—almost as much as the DS cartridge itself. Most people are not willing to pay that much for anything that’s going on their phone, unless it’s a case to make it indestructable.

Well, gamers rejoice! If you’ve wanted to play The World Ends With You on your iPhone or iPad, then now’s the time to pick up this baby. The price just dropped to $9.99 ($10.99 HD), and I assure you that it’s well worth the cash. The game doesn’t suffer in the least from removing the dual-screen gameplay, and if you think you don’t like Japanese RPGs, put those thoughts aside because The World Ends With You is not your average JRPG. It’s a rich story that anyone can relate to, whether or not you’re a Japanese teenager. Just take a look at the reviews for this game—4 and 5 stars all around.


I’ve already downloaded it, and I just wish I had an iPad so I could buy the HD version too. Still, I love playing games on my phone, so I’m more than happy to drop ten bucks on the smaller version.

What are you waiting for?!? Download the freaking game!
