The World Ends With You, Square Enix's Nintendo DS game, is hitting shelves on April 18th. At least in Europe.
Set in a trendy part of Tokyo, the story begins with the lead character Neku waking up to find a phone message stating he has only 7 days before he will cease to exist. Using the power of fashion, friends and fighting skills, Neku restores hope to the city's population and prevents being stricken from existence altogether.
John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, "Square Enix has traditionally been associated with RPG's set in fantasy lands, but THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU is our first ever game to be set in modern times and real-life locations. We believe gamers of all ages and abilities will be able to enjoy all that THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU has to offer."
No American release date has been announced.
