Quote :
NEO: The World Ends with You transports players to the streets of the Shibuya, where they will take part in the “Reapers’ Game,” a life-or-death battle for survival. Players will take on the role of Rindo as they explore the heart of Tokyo to uncover the mysteries behind the sinister Game in which they have been forced to take part.      

NEO: The World Ends with You brings a re-creation of modern Shibuya to life in a unique and comic-inspired style. Players can explore and enjoy the sights, sounds, and culture of this bustling city, fight monsters alongside their ally companions in fast-paced action battles, and complete missions as they seek to change the fate they’ve been handed.

Somewhere, right now, Jay is screaming his head off.  I'm excited too!  TWEWY on Switch was bad because it wasn't made with the Switch in mind, and because its newness, so key to it being strong on DS, had gone.  This has neither problem, and it looks top in 3D too.  Please be good!

This has renewed my desire to play the original. As someone with zero experience of the game, is the Switch version worth playing? I can't remember if it was legit bad or just disappointing to people who played on DS.

As I said elsewhere I'm keen on this and it being made for PS4 and Switch will translate better than the DS one.

Tough to say. A big part of how good it was, was due to how fresh it felt at the time. If you've not played it then that might still be there. Another big part was how well it used the DS' features, and obviously that didn't translate so well. So, er... dunno. Sorry.

Think I wanted to hop onto the Switch release and remember Jay saying the controls really weren't the best for it and that the DS version is absolutely the way to go. Great to hear about this announcement anyhow.

I just don't think I can be arsed to get into that kind of experience on my poor battered old 3DS right now. Also, there's the issue of tracking it down. I reckon I'll go for the Switch one at some point.

After my initial reaction of "YES GET THE FUCK IN LADS YASSSSS", I simply felt relieved that Squeenix didn't fake us out with yet another mobile port announcement after a countdown teaser. Laughing

Much like Balla said, I'm far more hyped for this than I was for the Switch port of the original. This looks like it'll be designed ground up for this hardware rather than stripping back what made the DS version so cool to play for a console port. I'm insanely interested from a story standpoint how Sho plays into things - I know he's meant to feature in the new epilogue content of Final Remix so maybe I ought to go back to that at some point.

It definitely loses something on Switch. It doesn't feel like the special game I fell in love with back on DS as by stripping away the combat system, you're left with something much less. Granted, it still has the same great soundtrack and the story still plays out in much the same way, but the combat system is such a pivotal part of the experience that I really encourage you to find a DS copy if you can. It doesn't help that the Switch touchscreen isn't a responsive as the DS's.

I've heard that playing in people call "Solo Co-Op" mode on Switch where you use the second Joycon normally meant for a literal second player to control the AI partner captures some of that magic from DS, but I've not tried it myself.

Wait what? I'm not sure I can struggle through the entire game to find out what this is, but... should I look it up? Argh, decisions...

Yeah, I fear it'll play heavily into TWEWY 2 so I really ought to go back to it... argh.

Interesting hopefully just a small cameo or tease for a sequel, which is here now.

I would have been insanely excited for this had it been announced like 5 years ago. Now I'm just in a state of disbelief that it's actually happening.

Still, it's looking like a pretty cool game regardless. Will probably check it out on PS4 since I read it's coming out on there.

I loved the original back in the day and played it to death. Bit afraid of going back to it in case I don't like it as much.

I went back and played the DS original a few years back, before the Switch port was even announced, and I can safely say that I still really fucking love that game. In fact, I almost appreciate it more after playing the Switch version, which is odd.

I'm worried that a big chunk of the reason why I got on so well with the first one (and it's not like it was my favourite DS RPG or anything!) was because it was fresh and new and used the DS' features so well. By dual-releasing it on PS4 they've already said that it won't have the latter point. I'm still excited, but I don't want to touch the original and am... not concerned about the sequel exactly, but wary maybe.

Whilst the combat system might not be as revolutionary or creative as the DS original, I'm still confident they'll capture the tone and include some unique mechanics to keep things fresh. I'm not worried. Grin
