App description: IMPORTANT INFORMATION
We have confirmed a bug that prevents this game from running properly on iOS 8, and are currently investigating the matter. We humbly ask for your patience and understanding until the issue is resolved.


------------------
SUPPORTED DEVICES
iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, and 5th generation iPod touch (excluding 16 GB models).
iOS 4.3 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 Reapers 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 Reapers 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
Nekus 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 Ishimotos 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

Comparing the DS Resolution with the Retina. And yes those two small Picture on the Left are the actual Nintendo DSi Resolution. (Click the Picture to see it it in all it`s glory)

I hope that Way a few more do actually realize that you couldn`t just simple take the 60 MB Nintendo DS Build and just put it 1:1 on the Apple iDevice.

1. Just the pins, but wearing a brand of clothes will help raise the popularity of it in an area.
2. Scratch = a rapid back and forth motion, direction doesn't matter. I find them hard to activate them too, so did soemone a few pages back.

Square Enix usually has sales on older products when they release a new game but WEWY is not likely to be included since it is a recent release. They have had holiday sales the past 2 years but no guarantees what would be included. It'd be safest to wait until after the holidays just to be sure. ...says the guy who is waiting on a Chrono Trigger sale.

Surprise update. Adds alternate means of getting mingle PP along with the ability to purchase some of the items which could only be gotten through trading. 100% clears are now possible if you don't know anyone else with the game.

Sweet, thanks for the heads-up. It's a shame this still doesn't support iPhone 5's wide screen, but I don't think that'll happen anytime soon.

Very nice update. Seems we were right in trusting in and predicting that Square would follow up on the mingling issues, kinda like they actually did update FFT a number of times, with some important additions.

While I would have preferred to see online trading and mingling and slampinning (much like I would have liked to see online async multiplayer in FFT. Hey, let a man dream...), this still kinda removes the last very few, very small annoyances in a game that was already edging dangerously close to perfection
