The World Ends with You: Solo Remix for iPad
By SQUARE ENIX INC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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 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.

Best port of an RPG. Ever.
The title says it all, pretty much. The unique gameplay that was built for the DS made this game a great fit for iOS. I enjoyed every bit of this game; from the realistic 'almost Shibuya' background art, to the wild characters, to the engaging and diverse control/power system, to the extremely catchy soundtrack. (Calling is joining Sanctuary as a favorite track in my music collection)
This game looks far better than any other pixel art game on the iOS. My only complaints are these: the sticker art, the split screen mechanic being reduced to a single action (your partner is no more than a summon), and the fact that none of the collectibles can be moved out of the library. I still think it was worth 20$, unless you have the DS version already.
First time TWEWY player
While I have a DS, I've never played TWEWY before this.
Amazing gameplay. It's fun and worth the price. You really grow to love all the characters involved. It's also quite lengthy. I was also shocked that it didn't burn battery life. I played this for a 8+ hour international flight without dropping below 50% battery. The sound track really grows on you. The many, many, many hours of game play I continue to get from this game is why I have to give it 5 stars.
It's NOT rental for the iPad 3. It's noticeable, but you can look past it. The game really feels easy. The hard levels just make it take longer to kill things, not harder.
I've seen this game around for awhile on the psp and when it was ported to the ipad, I downloaded it for $9.99, and wow did it exceed my expectations. Like Bayonetta, if I didnt try this game out I would have missed out on a gem of a game. Fun combat, tons of "pins" which are your abilitities in-game, great story and writing, amazing soundtrack,adjustable difficulty modes, choose your battles, and a lot more. Get it
