Eariler this week, we reported that a new teaser site from Square Enix seemed to be hinting at something related to the DS cult classic, The World Ends With You. While the website is still counting down, it seems like Square accidentally let the cat out of the bag, and the big secret was apparently something we never expected… Or wanted.
Thanks to a listing on the Japanese iTunes store, an album titled, “The World Ends With You- Crossover”, listed remixed tunes from the original and additional songs from the Kingdom Hearts 3D soundtrack which are set for an apparent iOS remake. The listing was taken down, but not before some crafty Japanese took screenshots of the page.
But is that all there is to the story? Since the leak, Brian Gray, (@brilingual,) one of the translators for TWEWY, tweeted the following:
“before everyone decides that the #twewy coundown is over, they might want to wait for the countdown to be over”.
The countdown is still going, so we won’t know for sure if this is all there is to the story until the clock hits zero. It’s pretty strange that we seem to keep getting iOS releases when most gamers seem to prefer them on their gaming consoles. I understand that everyone and their mothers have iPhones and iPads at this point, but that larger install base doesn’t mean everyone is going to care. Especially when games like Final Fantasy Mega Man are iOS exclusive, especially the latter where its fans have been begging for a release and expected it on an actual gaming platform.
Is it too late to hope for a sequel? And not for my phone or tablet? Pretty please Square?
