The World Ends with You
United States
From the ingenious team that brought you Kingdom Hearts comes a new action RPG for the Nintendo DS™ system called The World Ends with You™.

Set in Tokyo’s trendy Shibuya district, the story begins with Neku, just another ordinary kid, waking up to find a text message that states that he must complete a series of missions or face “erasure”. Now immersed in the “Reaper’s Game” Neku must find badges that allow him to harness his natural abilities and powers to discover the truth before he is erased!

The World Ends with You - Bonus!

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 23, 2008, 5:27 AM

Square Enix has released a bonus set of exclusive game concept art ! The first set  gave you a glimpse into the developer's creation process for the awesome backgrounds, the second allowed you to see how the developers came up with the heroes and villains and the third showed you how they made Noise for The World Ends with You.

This surprise bonus release includes aspects of Psych and Pin design!


Slide 10: Initial " Psych" concepts
Initial 'Psych' concepts by wewy

Hasegawa-san: We arrived at the concept of " Psych abilities " to express the intuitive stylus control in battle. The board you see is from the original concept proposal. With the premise that Psych reflects a character’s personality, and since his characterization includes an interest in graffiti, we represented Neku’s Psych abilities in a graffiti style.

Slide 11: Psych and Pin digitization

Hasegawa-san: The above board shows how we realized the graffiti-style artwork in-game. We chose to use Pins as the source of Psych ability, since they fit the Shibuya style. We also saw the collection factor as important, exploring designs that are visible at the limited 26dpi resolution.

Slide 12: Brand logo and Pin designs

Hasegawa-san: Some Pins carry associations with fictional brands that we created for the game. The same Psych ability can have different effects depending on its brand. We tried to keep the style of each brand consistent so that players could easily tell which brand a Pin is a part of. That way, players can easily collect and use the Pins within their favorite brands.

The World Ends with You is In Stores Now!!!
