Cutbacks and all, this still remains one of the most distinctive battle systems we’ve seen yet in an RPG.
With the launch of The World Ends With You: Final Remix, the upcoming Nintendo Switch port of the Nintendo DS game from over ten years ago, almost upon us, Nintendo and Square Enix have dropped a brand new trailer for the title on us. The trailer walks us through the game’s battle system.
The World Ends With You’s battle system has always been rather unique. The game was originally built specifically around the Nintendo DS hardware, including the presence of two screens and the touch screen. Of course, the Switch lacks a second screen, so compromises have been made in translating the game over to the platform. Nonetheless, the battle system still looks to be frenetic and fun, at least based on the demonstration for it that is given in this trailer.
It goes without saying, but we also get to see more gameplay footage for the title, and hear more of its great music. If you’re a fan of The World Ends With You, you don’t want to miss this Switch release— especially since series producer Tetsuya Nomura has previously suggested that it might bridge straight into a sequel.
