“New 7 Days” Says A Teaser In The World Ends With You: Solo Remix

By Ishaan . August 31, 2012 . 4:20pm

Here’s a secret ending scene that appears after the end of The World Ends With You: Solo Remix, the recent port of the game on iOS devices:

 

 

A hint at a new game? Or perhaps some sort of other project? In a recent article in Famitsu magazine, the game’s director, Tatsuya Kando, shared with regard to the series: “We are in the middle of working on various things, but for now please enjoy Solo Remix.”

 

A big thanks to Siliconera reader, Fitzpatrick Phillips, for the heads up!

    Don’t let me down again SQUARE

  • imaguni

    Aaaand the hype is back on! I definitely think my new motto is to just stay neutral till TGS now. ;_;

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      I highly doubt anything will be announced as soon as TGS. Don’t get your hopes up.

      • imaguni

         Ahh, you’re right, I’ll stay realistic!

     I wonder if we might see a prequel. *shrugs* Whatever it is, I want it.
    (If it’s a sequel then I hope to see Neku as the Conductor ;;)

  • Luna Kazemaru

    I already said what I would do if this is a sequel in Open thread

  • Hoshi星

    I need to head back and complete the extra reports in TWEWY. All those TWEWY related news makes me happy.

  • $24431191

    I’d laugh it was just an android port.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      Haha, couldn’t be. That character wasn’t in the original.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       I don’t know how it would be a port that girl was never shown before to now. People keep saying its shiki when that looks nothing like her lol.

      • http://www.tadaimatte.com/ Ashley Haley

        It’s probably because of Mr. Mew.

      • Herok♞

         Well spoilers shiki doesn’t really look like that but thats not her real look either.

  • http://www.segalization.com/ Kuronoa

    Well if it is a sequel we know iOS is a platform.

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      Not necessarily, think back to KH Dream Drop Distance, it teases *spoiler* KH3 *spoiler* but i’m pretty sure that game isn’t coming to the 3DS.

      • Luna Kazemaru

         I’m betting it was for the fans who supported the IOS version. I couldn’t buy it since I have an android lol.

      • https://twitter.com/RaiohV Raioh

        They remade the game in Retina graphics tho, I don’t think they would have bothered if they hadn’t planned to continue TWEWY on iOS in one form or another.

        • Sakurazaki

          Actually, if you played the game on iOS, even if the page for the DL says that it supports retina, it clearly doesn’t. It gets a bit pixely.

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      What will likely happen is what is currently happening with Square’s major portable games. First a portable release, then an iOS port a year or so down the line. I don’t think they’ll want to give up the higher price point they can charge on consoles just yet.

  • SirTeffy

    Wait… that’s… SHIKI?!

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      It doesn’t look like her. The real shiki has short hair

      • SirTeffy

         Yea, but she’s definitely holding Mr. Mew….

        • SantiagodelosSantos

          That’s Mr. Mew alright, but that doesn’t look like shiki

    • Luna Kazemaru

       http://img390.imageshack.us/img390/7857/realshikicq5um5.jpg nothing alike man.

  • SirRichard

    Skirts are the new belts, apparently. Why does she have two?

    That said, this is an interesting little tidbit, but given that it’s just an image, whatever it’s about probably won’t surface for a while. Might not even be a sequel, could just be a DLC mini-campaign for the iOS version.

    • https://twitter.com/RaiohV Raioh

      Actually I think it’s just one skirt, I would elaborate but I have no clue how to describe it in English…with frills and stuff I think.

      • SirRichard

        I could see that, yeah. Though I prefer the idea of two skirts, just because fashion in Nomura’s stuff is so wonderfully silly.

        • http://www.facebook.com/MokoYami Viet Duc Nguyen

          Fashion in Shibuya/Harajuku is crazy in generall ~ It would actually really fit if Nomura design silly stuff like he always does.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      It’s not two skirts.

      It’s called a slip. TWEWY is a very fashionable game.

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

       Anti-pervert measures!

  • AnimeRemix

    My 4 assumptions are these~
    1.It’s Shiki

    2.Neku and Shiki got together in the future and had a kid. The kid (this girl) likes to block people out from time to time with her music, but like to also hold on to something her mother treasured dearly, Mr. Mew.

    3.It’s new characters all together with this girl probably being the new protagonist. This time, Mr. Mew isn’t owned by Shiki, but by this mysterious girl (since Shiki doesn’t exist in this new game.)

    4.It takes place in the future. This girl is a little bit like Neku, and she randomly came across Shiki one day and Shiki found something in her that made her believe that this girl is the right girl to carry Mr. Mew and take care of him (just passing it down to a new girl that comes along after a certain amount of years go by.)

  • axelfire250

    Just wanted to point out that it’s not Mr. Mew in the pic but a very similar look alike. His mouth and tail are off.

    Edit: just noticed that this “Mr. Mew” also has claws.

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      Nice catch. Also, claws? I’m pretty sure that’s just his paws and it looks like claws because of the girl’s thumb

      • axelfire250

        Whoops my bad apparently I just mistook her fingers for claws :p

        • Niermyico

           Who knows, maybe they are claws but chibi-like. I mean theres this white colored section between her fingers and the doll’s black paws.

          • SantiagodelosSantos

            I’m pretty sure the original Mr. Mew had the white pad things on his hands. 

      • Aaron Brasher

        CHICKEN WINGS

  • MegaOverclocked

    Perhaps it’s Neku and Shiki’s Daughter? Shiki passing down Mr.Mew, and Neku sharing his music experience.

  • TWILTHERO

    Well, I do like the character design at least.

    I’m not hyped up yet, but if it’s a sequel, I’d like it on 3DS.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nick-Tetlow/1301633575 Nick Tetlow

    Square, I don’t know how to feel about you sometimes.

  • seraphinw1

    PLEASE don’t be iOS exclusive

  • Elemiel

    WELL WELL WELL.

  • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

    So who’s going to apologize to the translator?  

    • Sakurazaki

       Definitely me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/matthew.wong.1029 Matthew Wong

    I guess Brian wasn’t lying….I wonder if he still lives?

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      Yeah, he still lives. He acknowledges the picture and says it’s real. 

  • Anime10121

    Want!  Want so frekin bad its not even funny! I LOVED TWEWY so any possible mention of a sequel (which is looking extremely likely with all these hints and revisits) has  me squealing like a little girl!  Dont care what system its for, if its iPad/phone exclusive, regardless of how I feel about tablets and their usefulness (or lack thereof), I will buy an iPad!  I’d rather have this on console/handheld but hey, beggars cant be choosers, and for an amazing property like TWEWY, I’ll bite any bait they give me:D

  • http://takopako.tumblr.com takopako

    aha~!

  • riceisnice

    Looks like Neku’s emo tendency can be inherited through genetics.

  • Victoria [Rokuso3]

    S-E must be trolling us. It has to be for iOS.

  • Kefkiroth

    FeMC for a sequel? That would be great. Let’s hope it’s on 3DS or Vita though.

  • FFmax

    NO MORE iPHONE GAMES!!! Please Square, we want a brand new game for the 3DS. But if it’s another port at least make it so they have way more content, like Kingdom Hearts II final mix/Tales of Vesperia PS3 content.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

      If they want to cater to the iOS user then let them. Who are you to tell them what they should and should not do? 

      • sd28

        and why do you care if he says this its not like square are gonna look here and decide based off of his comment

        • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

          Duh, obviously! I don’t particularly care about people not liking one platform as it doesn’t affect me in any way but it’s stupid enough to think that one person (ffmax) thinks they can represent an entire community and decide on things like everyone want square to abandon iOS or such simply because he doesn’t like it. All I’m saying is the world doesn’t involve around one person. If it did then we would all be mindless drones. Let me quote something to get my point straight.

          “NO MORE iPHONE GAMES!!! Please Square, we want a brand new game for the 3DS”

          Do you see the “we want” and ”
          NO MORE iPHONE GAMES!!!”? yeah I thought so. The last time I checked I don’t mind square releasing games for the iOS and I don’t remember wanting a new TWEWY game as I think it doesn’t need it. If it does come in the future then cool. *shrugs

          [edit - Now I'm going to be entertained by people comment bashing iOS and begging for a new twewy game]

          • FFmax

            Someone’s mad? Lol, seems like you’re the only one making a big deal about this. If you have a iphone for this game then good for you, but a lot of people including me want a new TWENTY game on a handheld system. Also I don’t represent any community or any bullcrap so please get over yourself, and your comment was rude as hell too.

          • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

            “Someone’s mad?”
            I’m just bored. I could hardly care for the game.

            ” If you have a iphone for this game then good for you, but a lot of people including me want a new TWENTY game on a handheld system. ”
            Me having an iPhone doesn’t matter in this case, what matter is it ok for YOU, I mean YOU as a person, not everyone else to demand something simply because you don’t like the platform? I’ll just copypasta this “NO MORE iPHONE GAMES!!!” They can make a game for WHATEVER platform they want.

            “Also I don’t represent any community or any bullcrap so please get over yourself”
            I’m already over myself, I’m just simply bored. Ok then say “I” instead of “we” next time because it makes a differences. A big differences. I’ll just copypasta this “Please Square, we want a brand new game for the 3DS”

            “your comment was rude as hell too”
            Hardly rude and if other people think otherwise then that’s their problem. If I’m saying something you don’t like then I again hardly call it rude. I’m not causing any trouble for anyone or myself. It’s simply not worth it as I was warned not to be “rude” once a couple of months ago and I rather not unintentionally be rude over something typical as this. You can continue being butthurt over this. I shouldn’t be this picky over the way people say things. See you in another article.

          • FFmax

            It’s hilarious that you say you could hardly care for this game yet you chose to attack me and get worked over something as trival as this. You could have ignored my comment instead of starting something.

          • Im not saying you’re wrong but

            funny enough, he ignored you after that xD

  • anjohinc

    I would absolutely adore the idea of a sequel/prequel but what’s bothering me is that this says 7 new days and TWEWY was longer than that so I can’t help thinking that it’s just a downloadable add on or something of the sort.

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      I hope that’s not the case

    • DuskSharkEX

      But weren’t you led to think it would only last a week in the original? Maybe they’re doing it again.

      • miju

        interface spoilers say no

      • http://www.facebook.com/matthew.wong.1029 Matthew Wong

         Right on the money. When the original first came out it was all “you have a week”.

      • SantiagodelosSantos

        …spoilers

  • kuroneko0509

    i won’t hype about this…. afraid that same thing happen again

    • Luna Kazemaru

       You know that was mostly you all’s fault right?

      • SantiagodelosSantos

        Usually teaser sites are meant to create hype. A sequel was teased and teased, KH 3D had cameos from the cast, then the site showed up and it had TWEWY music and imagery giving us a reason to hype us up. Then the translator came out and said #moredripthanleak leading those who where disappointed about the ios port leak to get hyped up again. Also, creating a teaser site for a port to phones…well it’s fairly unheard of in the industry. Don’t blame the fans, it’s not our fault. :(

        • Luna Kazemaru

          A teaser site can be used for more then just hyping a sequel hence why they made the site in the first place to generate hype and interest in TWEWY. They did so but the backlash over it being over a IOS port they did not expect I’m sure. Then everyone went all ‘your dead SE’ Or other generic comments of hate that fact they even put the port out there is showing that SE still has interest in the game itself. I can blame the fans for jumping conclusions and the unjustified hate for games just simply being put on the IOS or being a social game. As for the Translator and SE I never said they where free from the blame factor.

          • Herok♞

             To be fair, a sequel has been teased for months like even in the april nintendo power this year, so it is understandable how people would think it was the teased sequel so it wasn’t baseless hype for some.

      • kuroneko0509

        I know…. That’s why I’m reminding my self not to hype for game teasers anymore.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    This might just be a add on story for the ios…”yawn” im not going to get my hopes up. Squareenix has failed me so many times. Im not even going to pretend I care.. Not getting my hopes up!  Nope not this time Square. *by the way Mr. Mew has a new owner?! Is it a nobody of Shiki?! XD

    • seraphinw1

      I remember when being hyped for anything SE related was a good idea…

  • Cephrien

    Who is that?

    Like– /real/ Shiki?

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      I don’t think so. Real shiki was nerdier looking, had glasses, short black hair, etc

      • zeta

        maybe mr. Mew got famous 
        or that’s Shiki and Neku’s daugther Mr.Mew + Earphones = lovechild

        • http://www.fogalchemist.com/ caleb1993

          I wouldn’t immediately write off this theory myself. It is a possibility.

    • http://www.facebook.com/norakisaragi Evan Waugh

      …No.

      I’m just gonna wager that it’s Neku’s online friend revealed in another day. Yup. The fact she’s wearing headphones immediately makes her friend potential for Neku anyway.

  • Daniel Morandi

    To flame or not to flame….but we can hope.

  • JMaster3000

    Its gonna be TWEWY 2 for the 3DS :D …………. FALSE! We are porting the TWEWY to GREE :D *trollololol*

  • MrOrpheus

    I predict a hot potato-esque Facebook game in which you have to pass Mr. Mew along to your friends. It’s compulsory, and if you don’t play, Square Enix stops the metaphoric nonsense and literally rips your heart out. Or something.

  • Kitestwinblades

    Since Neku was featured in Dream Drop, I’d like to see some of the characters from Musashi(The PS2 samurai legend one) appear in a new The World Ends With You. Some of those characters had some pretty nifty styles.

    The return of the Musashi series would be nice too, even though the last one was kinda different from the original ps1 game. Come to think of it, they should put Brave Fencer in the PSN store too XD

  • MrKappa

    It’s a sequel or bust. Sorry SE but you have a lot of work to do to build back up your rep.

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      Don’t worry, lighting returns: FF13 will cheer you up! 

  • lesangpro .

    shiki !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby , she hot !

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      nope its not

    • AuraGuyChris

      Yes, she TOTALLY let her hair grew longer and dyed it blond…

    • AuraGuyChris

      Yes, she TOTALLY let her hair grew longer and dyed it blond. And she apparently wears contacts now…

  • Lazulis

    SE has made me immune to their teases. I always expect the worst. New 7 Days…sounds like an add-on…

  • http://www.fogalchemist.com/ caleb1993

    Excited to know what’s coming next. This teaser is so full of intrigue I’m not sure I can handle it. 

  • Chiupon

    i kind of screamed

    she’s so… cute
     

  • http://www.facebook.com/norakisaragi Evan Waugh

    Erm, guys?

    I’m pretty sure this girl is most likely Neku’s close friend that died in a car accident.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if the Reapers or Angels or whatever started going after her to get to Neku. Anyone who has played another day all the way through knows what i’m talking about.

    • Chiupon

      Jesus christ. Definitely sounds like prequel material.

      • Chiupon

        But then again, she’s holding Mr. Mew. So I doubt it could happen pre-TWEWY. In order for her to have Mr. Mew, something would have to happen where Shiki is out of the picture. 

        • http://www.facebook.com/norakisaragi Evan Waugh

          Not really. Mr. Mew is just a doll. Shiki’s Mr. Mew was alive in the game only due to her psyche, but that doesn’t mean that this girl’s is. It’s probably just a…whats it called.. “nod” towards TWEWY, not necessarily meaning anything in particular

          • SantiagodelosSantos

            Didn’t she make Mr. Mew?

          • Chiupon

             Shiki made Mr. Mew — it was the first thing she ever made. Now, Shiki is pretty good at sewing and that’s something that takes a long to master to get to the point where you’re ready to tailor clothing that someone can wear on the streets of Shibuya and still look fashionable — Mr. Mew is probably 4 or so years old, and Neku’s friend died a year prior. Bringing her back wouldn’t really do anything to Neku because he already got over it — bringing her back would just like derail all his character development. It’d be easier to assume she’s a new character in a new cast with her own problems to overcome.

  • kylehyde

    I wanna believe, but is hard to trust again, but I wish that everything changes for good (in other words, please a TWEWY for 3DS or Wii U).

  • Herok♞

    Square, don’t let me down I want to believe but you just ripped my heart out last week.

    • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

      Try not to get too over-excited next time. I acknowledge the uniqueness and creativity in TWEWY, but I wasn’t expecting anything in particular, so the announcements didn’t really affect me.

      • Herok♞

         I won’t I just thought they were acting upon the small teases that were left here and there, but I might have implied to much with that comment. It did hurt much.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    She is adorable no matter what this is hinting at. I just love cute. Especially cute girls. Though I could never get a girl especially not a cute girl. Oh well. lol She is cute end of story, instant love from me.

  • zeta

    so who else thinks the possibility of this character is Neku and Shiki’s child?
    (earphone and mr. mew)
    what are your other theories?

  • Vyrus

    And then we get an Android game, instead…
    I don’t wanna be a jerk, but that last hype left another bad impression to me about Square-Enix’s disappointing teasers as of late. I’ll just wait until a real announcement about a game is out in the open.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

      hey, it was your fault and everyone else for being too hyped. I don’t think square can just write on their site saying “sorry this isn’t for player who played the game on the DS, we’re trying to get other audiences to play this”. You shouldn’t get your hopes up if a site of an existing game just suddenly pops up. Learn to stay patient and then get hyped after the reveal.

      • Vyrus

        Don’t blame us for getting hyped. A sequel was teased long before the port came out. Nomura hinted that a new game is coming out; KH 3D had cameos from the cast and hinting that Rhyme was voiced because there’s a possible sequel coming; the trademark from the same game; the site showing up with TWEWY music; and the supposed translator coming out and saying that #moredripthanleak
        which all lead people to
        hype up.

        • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

          Actually I can blame you since you are the one who can’t control your own emotion over something you don’t know much about. Sure the developer said there will be a sequel and there are cameo in KH3D. That doesn’t exactly mean…the countdown will definitely be a sequel. I very much like the game as much as you do but you don’t see me going overly hyped for a game then go ape sh!t after it was announced as a port (which I didn’t mind. Playing it on my iPhone and enjoying it like). That’s just me but it seems like loads of people in the niche community seems to like get hyped over anything. As for the translator, I wouldn’t even take his word into consideration. He’s just a guy who translated the game (not sure). 

          Off topic here, you know what I’m pissed about? Zen united not releasing persona 4 arena in the UK and the rest of EU. They announced that they delayed the game but from what date did they delay it from? no one knows. That is something to be pissed about, not something you initially thought to be a sequel but ending up turning into a port on a device you probably despise like nearly everyone else here.

          • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

            Ubisoft allegedly is supposed to release the game this month in Germany – I’d be guessing with English text (and dub, as we rarely get German dubs unless it’s a game for children). And besides, the PS3 version is region free, so you could just import it as well. 

          • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

            Persona 4 arena is region locked remember? 

          • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

            It’s region locked? I haven’t really followed any news regarding that game, so I didn’t know. But that’s pretty lame.. so it’s like the only region locked PS3 game? Sucks much. Okay, then I can see your point. That’s definitely something to be pissed about.

          • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

            I is sad :< 

          • dotzeno

            Atlus does go on to provide us with a reason during a press release…

            Not that I particularly approve.
            But I hope the more money they make, the more and better games they produce.

          • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

            I’m sad as well tho, since I’d still really like a TWEWY sequel.. I’m pretty sure tho that you’ll get your P4 Arena EU version soon. And who knows when I’ll get my sequel.. if there’s gonna be one at all. ;__; 

            Oh well.. I at least have P4 Golden to look forward to. Which isn’t region locked. Yay.

          • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

            Yeah I preordered the golden last week. Man can’t wait to play it! I’m itching to play an japanese RPG these days.

      • dotzeno

         i don’t know whether I should agree or not. You have valid points, but who makes a teaser site (to pull in existing fans) featuring the familiar stylized countdown from this game for people who will play it for the first time (and would have no idea what it was, at all)?

        the scenario is very much like chronotrigger’s re-release, but we all knew that they probably won’t make a sequel to chronotrigger (or will they?).

        i am still disappointed that this turned out to be solo remix, but am more disappointed with square in general.

        • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

          Sure, I knew that there was going to be a sequel or some sort but I also took into consideration that they been porting some of their previous games to iOS. I somewhat knew that one day a game like TWEWY which is mainly touched based irrc will come to iOS or I don’t know the 3DS?

      • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

        Yeaaah, but seriously, teasing ports that much is a little bit too much. If they make a website with a countdown and be all mysterious about it… It just makes you think there should be more to it than just a port… I mean, if the game had been 20 years old and they’d have improved the game a lot (new graphics, new content etc) then that would have been fine too. But this was just disappointing. 

        I didn’t get too hyped, but I was plenty of disappointed nonetheless.. ^^;

        • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

          Well when I went to the teaser site, I just heard a remix of an audio. I though, I feel like this is going to be the same time but in a different platform…then it hits me, iOS! Square been porting their game there for some time now.

  • http://nisekami.deviantart.com/ NiseKami

    I think showing a new character hints at a new title… I hope.

  • heartless141

    Hey, could it be that’s Shiki, her real face?

      I don’t think so. We know the real her had black hair and glasses.

      • heartless141

         It’s gray, close enough. and contacts isn’t impossible for shiki. i mean there ain’t many glasses main game characters

  • Nicolas Vasquez

    anything but a browser/social game would be good at this point.

  • http://twitter.com/Linka13 Linka

    Man, everyone thinks this is Shiki and Neku’s kid somehow, but…

    Look at her hair color. It’s infinitely closer to Joshua’s.

    • neetyneety

      So it’s Neku and Joshua’s kid!

      …oh wait.

        DUUUUUDDDEEEE

  • Maia Kasoya

    She looks so pretty, and– Mr. Mew!?…
    …Oh, I get it. She’s the buyer mentioned in the Gatito thread descriptions. You know, “Our buyer used every dirty trick to acquire this pig- uh, cat named “Mr. Mew” that Shiki brought to life via psychomancy.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

    Either she Shiki undergo MAJOR makeover, Neku and Shiki daughter, some1 Neku/Shiki used to know (Neku friend tht SPOILER died SPOILER??) or a completely unrelated charac.
    On another note: She looks cute.

    -EDIT-
    Abt wht this tease mean, I would just wait for an announcement then I will only go “fanboying”

  • Areuto

    YES A SEQUEL!

  • Philip Irwin

    Oh come ON, you guys too?!  Are those of us who want to take time with a game no longer allowed to have a couple of weeks to attempt to do so?!

    Seriously, a small but still BIG surprise like this and now TWO sites I browse decided to ruin it.

    WTH guys, can we please have some common courtesy when it comes to things like this?  I get it’s no big name triple AAA title or some crap but seriously, respect that there ARE people who want to find things like this on their own!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/AC7FOQ5NHZ7CWXUU2LQKWG743Y Shiromokuba*

      All it said was that there was a secret ending, is it that much of a spoiler? It didn’t actually say what was in it or anything.

      • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

         I think that picture is all there is to it.  Which honestly I think still mean he needs to chill, that isn’t much of a secret and nothing about it spoils the game

      • Philip Irwin

        Trust me when I say I don’t feel good about whining about this, but as a fan of the game who was really enjoying the iOS remake so far and was hoping for maybe something special or a surprise to…  well, surprise me at the end of the game, it’s now ruined,

        I get it, it’s just an image but it’s still something players would otherwise not have been able to access without completing the game first.  And after having already dodged this spoiler over at GFAQ’s I was pretty hopeful and expecting of this to be something I found out about on my own without a news site ‘reporting’ it.

        tl;dr to some it’s not a big deal but if it’s not a big deal to you then why comment on it and ruin it for someone who WOULD care?

        • Aerii

           Because it’s actual news. You don’t hide news about the development of another game just because it’s a spoiler (and one that has nothing to do with the plot of the game, in fact–it’s just an image they tossed in).

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/AC7FOQ5NHZ7CWXUU2LQKWG743Y Shiromokuba*

          It’s nothing new to report on this stuff though, they are just doing their job and in the end it isn’t really a spoiler at all. Just be more cautious when looking at this stuff.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/AC7FOQ5NHZ7CWXUU2LQKWG743Y Shiromokuba*

      it wasn’t really even their fault, it was commented on in an official site (famitsu) so it’s only natural they’d report on it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000172099718 Dominic Hunter

    Ugh, would someone please just SAY SOMETHING for once? I’m sick of being teased…

  • rinalicat

    I don’t know what to make of this…I’m very mixed; OBVIOUSLY, I’m excited but I’m just mixed about who this character is. I don’t mind if it’s Shiki; she changes so much over the course of the game so that actually works (she could have had a confidence makeover!). I don’t think she’ll be the child of Neku and Shiki because it just seems a bit too…soon in a way. I’m not convinced it’s Neku’s friend either just because of Mr Mew (and Shiki MADE Mr Mew).

    I would love this character to be a Partner in a new cast for a TWEWY2!!!

  • Hinataharem

    Is there something wrong with her mouth? What’s she hiding?
     
    >:3

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

      The sewers from Shibuya River got smelly since Neku caused ruckus down there yo!

  • Go2hell66

    is that the real shiki? i thought she was supposed to be ugly or something
    then why did she swap bodies?

    • Kyle D. Johnson

      She wasn’t ugly, she just had image issues…

  • http://twitter.com/Ahrimhan Ahrimhan

    That’s obviously not Shiki… The real Shiki had black short hair, glasses and wore very simple clothes. I don’t see any of that in this picture.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Samanosuke John Esteves

      There something called a time skip and a girl can change the way she dresses and change her image entirly by whatever or whoever she influence.

      Shiki is the only one who owns this cat, so it’s obvious that this is her unless she is some sort of descendant. Also Shiki was probably influence to wear her own set of headphones, I wonder where she got the idea? hmmmmmmm?

      • Aerii

         I… really don’t think it’s Shiki. Plus, the headphones thing represents isolation, so I kinda doubt they’d make Shiki do it just because Neku did. I don’t think they’d change Shiki so much she looks like a completely different person. Some people have been theorizing that Shiki’s Mr. Mew became fashionable or something and now lots of people have them. I’d rather go with that.

  • Go2hell66

    hold on the comments below are confusing me a bit. i didn’t play the post game. did they show real shiki’s face at some point? i remember seeing like a shadow or something but i don’t remember seeing her face

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      May be spoiler: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080628051638/twewy/images/3/38/Realshiki.jpg

      • http://twitter.com/Ahrimhan Ahrimhan
        • Barrylocke89

          IIRC, the full picture is an imagining of what she looks like based on the other picture. But of course, you see enough of her body for this imagining to be close enough to the real Shiki.

          Either way, I REALLY doubt that that’s Shiki above. I like the theory about Mr. Mew becoming a fashionable doll that another girl owns.

          • http://twitter.com/Ahrimhan Ahrimhan

            Yeah, that might be true, as I don’t remember seeing her full body in the game but i just found that picture and it looked about right so I thought i’d maybe forgot it or it had been released somewhere on the internet.
            But yeah, I think that it’s either another Mr. Mew doll or Shiki gave hers to the person in the picture. They wouldn’t change the looks of one of the main characters that much.

        • Go2hell66

          that one’s fan are though isn’t it?

      • Go2hell66

        ah i see

        yea i remember that now

  • http://www.facebook.com/Samanosuke John Esteves

    I don’t understand how anyone is questioning if this is Shiki or not when the cat in her possession makes it obvious AND she has her own set of headphones that likely inspired Shiki to wear her own just like her hero. 

    • Bhunivelze

      Maybe because real ground Shiki has black hair and glasses? >_> So just people that payed attention to the game I guess… 

      • http://www.facebook.com/Samanosuke John Esteves

        Consider The Following: She could have just switch to contacts and Dye her hair to a lighter color. We’re talking about a girl here.

  • Barrylocke89

    Wouldn’t it be a hoot if it turned out that this was a GREE Social Game?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      no

  • Ace.Of Hearts♥

    OMG!!! ooh! even more reason for me to hurry up and finish the game! and whoever that girl is.. she has such a CUTE outfit!! its so awesome how its set in Shibuya and they have the characters with cool Shibuyaish clothing! that skirt is so cute! *want..* ….its Mr.Mew! so there might be a sequel????? m-m-m-more Joshua maybe??

    • natchu96

      Mr. Mew’s mouth isn’t quite like that . . .

      • Ace.Of Hearts♥

        O.o? ok then.. its Mr.Mew Jr! or Miss Mew??

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

          I assume tht Shiki Mr Mew got popular and she selling them in stores.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Seems really reasonable actually and would support the fact that this takes place in the future and could be a Neku/Shiki child.

          • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

            Or a total new MC that bought Shiki’s Mr Mew on 104.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            @Kevin_Miranda:disqus That works. But the main thing is that yes she indeed started selling her stuffed animals.

          • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

            I think she had Mr. Mew as her only stuffed animal.

            I think it’d be plausible if both Eri and Shiki became successful designers and made Mr.Mew the mascot of their brand and started to sell it as part of their merchandising and new MC here became a fan of their work.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            …In any case. That is what I was trying to say is that it is cool that their stuff kicked off.

  • Zurashii

    …Sh-Shiki and Neku’s daughter perhaps?

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      An image made by another person in GameFAQs has shown that this girl might be an Amalgam of Neku, Shiki and Joshua. So… threesome?

      • Göran Isacson

        My god. Having super-tsundere Neku as her father would be bad enough, having Joshua as her other!dad, giving out catty fashion-advice and try to help her grow as a person via relentless trolling would just be… God. Poor, poor girl if that turns out to be the case.

        • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

          Not unless the Trolling tendencies were inherited!

          • Göran Isacson

             So we will play as the Goddess of all trolling, instead of her father-god… I can dig this set-up too.

      • Im not saying you’re wrong but

        actually it has all the characters
        Neku’s Headphones, Shiki’s Mr. Mew, Joshua’s Hair, Rhyme’s stance, and Beats color scheme

  • Tales_of_Master

    Guess I need to hurry up and finish the first game. But man, the battle system felt too fast and too crowded for my taste, I’m more used to the turn based system of SMT games…..man I feel old O_O

    • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

      I’m usually not too fond of actioney gameplay and a lot more comfy with turn based stuff as well, but TWEWY was so much fun that I even played through it twice. You’ll get used to the battle system eventually and as you unlock more pins you can set it up in ways that make it less stressful. You should definitely give the game another chance, it’s worth it. :>

       Man I need to as well…so I can get a touchpad and play the Remix version. That or just sucked my friend into buying it on her kindle so I can play it.

    Seriously though, SQEnix is just trolling us now. If we don’t get a proper sequel I’m done with this company.

    • http://blackstar2661.deviantart.com/ SilverSpades

      Everything points to a proper sequel. ‘NEW 7 DAYS’ I don’t know how else to interpret that, haha.

      • Ben Sylvia

        It’s going to be a midquel that leads up to a true sequel where Neku has to fight his way through a mysterious white castle and is forced to use an annoying card system to battle enemies.

  • Dyne

    ok it
    1.Shiki and Neku daughter (about 20-25 years on from world ends with you to put her the about the same age as them when neku did it)
    2. Shiki and Neku daughter who jump back in time.(why not? they can jump world lines so why not time?)
    3.some kind of half clone of Shiki (let not forget that people are like code in this world so making a clone or half clone or someone could be done)
    4. Shiki got a new look. (maybe people did not like how she may of look back in the 1st game so they re did her look a lot , and it did look like Joshua was going to pull them in something bigger)

    edit
    I was look at her Real pic on the twewy.wikia and her chin line is pointly but this girl does not have that, so unless they are drawing her in a new way, that is not Shiki.

    • topdog2007

       i hope so this be a awesome squeal

  • tha_Chiller

    son of bitch Squeenix, thats not cool…now I have to get the Solo Remix

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

      Not really. Only thing new you’ll find in the Solo Remix is this pic past the ending.
      Unless of course, if you wanna test the new gameplay and watch the HD updates.

  • Maia Kasoya

    (SPOILERS FOLLOW)

    Aside from speculating who she is (like being the Gatito threads buyer…), maybe the reason why she’s looking up is because she saw Joshua and Hanekoma fly off into the sky at the end of the game?

  • Sam Park

    okay, im not exactly sure who that person is but i know that either she is the new protagonist (since she is holding the cat doll and wearing Headphone) or an important character for a new saga of the story

  • Göran Isacson

    I wonder if a potential sequel will include an all new cast playing an all new Reapers Game, or if some characters will make a return as they try to unravel some greater mystery that requires them to die and replay the game again. I doubt the latter since from what I recall, who got chosen to play the Reapers Game was pretty random so even if they DO need to investigate some mystery, I doubt killing themselves hoping to get a chance to play the game is a wise course of action.

    If they DO include some new characters though, one thing I’d think was cool would be perhaps a poor character who can’t afford to follow the latest trends, to give an outside perspective on how fashion may be a way to express oneself, but it’s a way that’s really not open to EVERYONE. Then again, using TWEWY to adress stuff like income disparities and social issues MIGHT be a touch too heavy for Square-Enix, that’s more like Atlus-material.

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

      My guess is that we’ll get a whole new cast. Only Joshua will participate and will have a rather important part of the story (Or Mr H), the cast from the first TWEWY will appear as cameos or by the end as some sort of sudden encounter with the new cast.

      • Göran Isacson

        Joshua, Mr H and HOPEFULLY Minamimoto, is what I’m hoping. You don’t just have a guy dissapear from underneath a junk pile and NOT make something out of it, you just don’t!

        • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

          “*Grabs megaphone*
          Im back from the junk you moronic sons of a digit!”

  • Alphabet Soup

    Here’s hoping it really IS a proper sequel.  Come on Square Enix, believe in the me that believes in you! (dons Kamina shades)

  • tekunachi_s2mickeys2

    Or Hoping they would reveal what happen to Neku’s friend at Another day, What happen to Sho Minamimoto can be seen in the last day and he is not erased his physical body remained, thus leading to the conclusion that he was just knocked out and Kariya having high level abilities
