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 Reaper’s Game.
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 Reaper’s 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.
- 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
Neku’s 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 Ishimoto’s complete, sonically sublime soundtrack is included right in the game with high-quality audio and full vocals, including remixes and new songs.

What's New in Version 1.2.1
- iOS8 support added."
Price is a bit steep but it's worth it. Would love to see it fit the full screen of the iPhone 6 instead of having the bars on the sides. Also with better resolution would be good too. But honestly it's fine the way it is for now. I'm just glad it's up and running again haha. I'm running iOS 9 beta 2 and have not had any problems with the game at all so hopefully it will stay that way even after public release. As another reviewer said, if you change your phone's language to Japanese it will also change the in game text and audio to Japanese, which, imo, is pretty great since I'm learning the language right now.
I was new to this game, but it game heavily recommended from the Nintendo DS from several friends. Not wanting to a buy a 3DS just for this game the updated art and reimagined controls for the iOS version was a great trade-off. A beautiful game with a great message and plenty of replay value. One request. Please please make this app universal (as are other Square Enix iOS games). It seems ridiculous to have to pay twice for the same vector art for essentially the exact same game on a larger screen. I went, "BWAAAAAAAAAAH!!” when I saw that the app is not universal.
Perfect on DS, Perfect on iOS
Absolutely ecstatic this has been released on iOS! This was a masterpiece on the Nintendo DS, and they have actually improved it for this release, graphically and playability. I always thought, due to the game already being touched based, would translate perfectly for iOS devices. And that's exactly what Square Enix has done, a perfect port of a perfect game.
The game is working again! Official iOS 8 support!!! Thank you Square Enix, I hope you continue to support the latest iOS as well. Now back to playing!
