On January 11th, 2016, a Nintendo Switch remix of The World Ends with You was announced. This list covers TWEWY's changes and reasons for excitement.
This was an E3 like surprise for me. :)
Same, it was the biggest news of the Direct. I am so glad to see the game get a remix version.
Biggest new was that this 10 years old port will be 60 dollars
“On January 11th, 2016, a Nintendo Switch remix of The World Ends with You was announced.” This remix was announced two years ago? Lolwut
not the same game. The mobile version didn't have the new 7 days story content.
What dafuq are you talking about
Square announced a new story with the Switch version
What dafuq does that have to do with my comment?
If it wasn't a sequel then Its not .. its the mobile version ported to the switch with extra chapter .. that's about it why are people pretending like this version doesn't exist lol
No one pretending that the mobile version doesn’t exist. People are excited because for the first time in years people got to play this with controller with additional chapters and cutscenes as you had said. Plus, it is the first time that they can play it on TV as well.
Unfortunately they are charging $60 for this.
Yea, that blew my mind. Adding some new bits to a game as old as this and charging full console price for what was a full priced handheld game seems pretty cash-grabby to me. I mean, you can get the DS version for under $30 new, you can buy it on mobile for under $20. It just seems like a super strange price point. But Nintendo seems to be charging full price for remasters right now which is a weird thing given the industry has mostly fallen in line with the $40 price point for things like these - occasionally getting 2 games for $40. Hopefully they come to their senses.
* square, nintendo didn't make this game.
How is Nintendo responsible for 3rd parties setting prices? Nintendo didn't make the games FFS.
To be fair Square is setting the price for this not Nintendo.
Good point all, this one was not Nintendo. I slotted this in along side Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze being sold for $60 and got Square tangled in with that. I guess that's what the market will bear since this (Square), DK (Nintendo) & Hyrule Warriors (Koei Tecmo) are all being sold for $60. But games like Dark Souls Remastered are selling for the generally accepted $40 price point for remasters. So I don't know. Make of it what you will.
Really? where is it listed for $60? .. definitely not purchasing until a steep discount if that's the case
Which will happen mere weeks after launch if they try that price but wouldn’t surprise, it’s not exactly cheap on App Store (its a rip off haha) well it’s not but nearly £20. That price id just get it on DS or try to but nah just get Switch Version once it’s been out a while
GameStop has it listed at $60.
We don't know that yet. Game stop has $60 listed because that is a place holder price until Square announced something.
I tried the game on the DS after hearing all of the hype, but just could not get into it. The story/characters were fine, but the battle system is just a complete mess and makes no sense.
