It has been confirmed that The World Ends With You: Final Remix will not support the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Following vague information, including eShop listings and the Japanese press, a Nintendo rep confirmed this with USGamer at a preview event.

Instead of offering traditional controls, Final Remix will use a single Joy-Con in TV/Tabletop modes and touch only in handheld mode. In solo play, either in docked mode or on a standalone Switch, the Joy-Con acts like a gyro-pointer to interface with the world, while the control stick moves your character. While only one Joy-Con can be normally used, co-op play is enabled by two separate Joy-Cons.

The touch controls are akin to the iPad port of TWEWY from 2012. No matter the interface, both control schemes in Final Remix emulate the control setup in the 2008 original on Nintendo DS.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix launches on Nintendo Switch on October 12th, and includes some extra story content, remixed music, and HD visuals. Nintendo will be publishing for Square Enix outside of Japan, as with this summer’s Octopath Traveler.
