One upcoming Nintendo Switch game that I have had an eye on is The World Ends With You: Final Remix. We knew that it was coming in 2018, but we now know that the release date is October 12th.
I have an interesting history with The World Ends With You. The original game for the Nintendo DS was one of those games that I bought on a whim. I was in my local GAME store and I was looking for something new and it was a recommendation from an employee. It is a JRPG set in a modern world with dead teenagers was pretty much the description I was given…… that was enough. I put around 70 hours into that game and loved every minute of it and I cannot wait to play this new and updated version.
The World Ends With Your Final Remix has been given an HD lick of paint and I think that it looks incredible. As well as new visuals the sound has been remixed which is a pretty big deal as there are battles that require you to time your actions to the music. The version released for mobile devices did this, but I did not experience that so I am very interested to see how it plays out.
Square Enix has also said that the control system has been given a bit of a rework. On the Nintendo DS, I would go as far to say that The World Ends With You is the best RPG for making use of the touchscreen. As this is the Nintendo Switch, Square Enix know that many people play with their console docked all of the time. So as well as touchscreen controls, you can also use the Joy Cons….. no word on if you can use the pro controller though. While I loved the touchscreen controls of the original, I am more interested in playing this on my TV.
The World Ends With You Final Remix is being released for the Nintendo Switch on the 12th of October. I know that October is a very, very busy month for release, but if you are looking for something different I highly recommend you check this out.
