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.

Editors' Notes

If you think you know role-playing games, think again. This one-of-a-kind adventure casts you as Neku, a psychic fount of teenage angst fighting monsters on the trendy streets of modern Tokyo. With a huge variety of missions to explore, mini-games to play and items to collect, Square Enix’s eye-popping ode to Japanese youth culture delivers a sophisticated story and dozens of hours of gripping gameplay. Long on style and even longer on fun, it blew away our preconceptions about the RPG genre.


The same grteat game!

It is a great game eitherway, it was on the DS and still is, but moving to the iOS there is a few things they could have improved, like adding multitouch suuport... I just naturally want to use multitouch!! The combat is less intense with only one screen to manage, and partner control is next to none especially without multitouch. The twitter thing is a nice touch though, and graphic too coool and updated for iOS.

overall, get it if you love the original, or if you are interested in this game, but if you didn't really like the original, then dont try this one, it is not any better (not that it need to be, cause the original is AWESOME!)


This is it!

This game represents a big turning point for ios gaming. SE have truly gone all out to make this more than a boring port, only very minor gameplay changes along with a fresh HD graphics bump make it feel like an all out revisioning.

The slight differences from DS are great and work excellently and work to make the game feel truly at home on ios. No other game gives the depth, presentation, story or replay value on the entire app store.

For as long as i have had an iphone i've wanted this, and i've got everything i could ask for!

The only possible blemish is the new mingle mode. It's understandable why it isn't as fully featured as the DS (obviously considering battery life for the device etc), but it would be nice to be able to still earn MPP without another ios device with this game (PLEASE DO SOMETHING SQUARE-ENIX!! MAKE IT PERFECT!!). This is only important to hardcore players who want to play through the whole post-story content and even without you can enjoy everything this game has to offer.
