UPDATE: A tweet from Brian Gray, one of the translators for The World Ends With You, recently tweeted that “before everyone decides that the #twewy coundown is over, they might want to wait for the countdown to be over”. Is there more to this teaser website than just an iOS/Android re-release of the game? I guess we’ll find out this coming Monday.


Remember that the teaser site related to The World Ends With You that was put up about a week ago? You know, the one that had tons of people anticipating a sequel to the game on the 3DS, or something? Well, Square accidentally revealed that isn’t for a sequel in the franchise, but for an iOS re-release. Whoops.

The details were leaked onto the product info for a new album called The World Ends With You – Crossover. It mentioned that the iOS version will contain tracks from Kingdom Hearts 3D. They have since deleted the comments from the page, but not before people took screenshots of it and leaked it all over the web.

This will undoubtedly disappoint a lot of people, considering that an iOS re-release isn’t really something you’d have a countdown for. But hey, at least The World Ends With You will get more exposure as a digital title on iOS, which is always nice. Not really sure how the combat is going to work on a single screen, though.

    This hasn’t been 100% confirmed that this is what the countdown is for. Apparently there is more to come according to the translator which said that this “leak was more like a drip”.  

  • It does not make sense that they would put up that countdown webpage for a re-release.  Countdowns typically happen before something is released/happens, otherwise it is some sort of “count up” if it occurs after a release/event.

    I have the feeling that, yes, this is an iOS game.

    But we’re dealing with SE here. They do enjoy splintering their series onto multiple platforms. I think we’re getting an iOS game that leads into something bigger. A sequel perhaps? I don’t know.

    My point is that I’m waiting for the countdown to be over before jumping to conclusions over one little slip in info. The rest of the internet can flip tables all they like. I’m waiting.
