The World Ends With You

The World Ends With You is an single-player action role-playing game developed by Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts team and Jupiter for the Nintendo DS handheld console. Set in the modern-day Shibuya shopping district of Tokyo, The World Ends with You features a distinctive art style inspired by Shibuya and its youth culture. The game has a rating of CERO: A / ESRB: T / PEGI: 12+. It utilises the D-pad, face buttons, microphone, stylus and touchscreen as input methods.

Features

In The World Ends With You, Neku Sakuraba and his allies are forced to participate in a game that will determine their fate. The battle system uses many of the unique features of the Nintendo DS, including combat that takes place on both screens, and attacks performed by certain motions on the touchscreen or by shouting into the microphone. Elements of Japanese youth culture, such as fashion, food, and cell phones, are key aspects of the missions. Some area of Shibuya may be inaccessible on certain days or blocked by a wall that can only be removed by satisfying the request of a nearby Reaper, (like erasing Noise symbols or obtaining a certain article of clothing). The area can be scans with psych pins that reveals the thoughts of the non-player characters in the Realground and memes and help progress the plot. The scan also reveals random Noise symbols that drift about the area, or in some cases, float around a specific character. The player initiates a battle by touching Noise symbols (each symbol constitutes one round of battle). Altering the difficulty of the Noise and the amount of health for Neku and his partner also alter the benefits conferred. Most missions require completion within a certain time. This timer is not correlated to the passage of time for the player. After completing the game, the player can return to any day in the story and play those events again, keeping the characters' current statistics and inventory.
