Well, there is a new game in the World Ends With You series, but don’t jump out of your seat yet. The World Ends With You Live Remix is from Square Enix and social game maker GREE. The World Ends With You Live Remix is slated for release this winter and is just one of the title from the Square Enix and GREE partnership.

 

Circle of Mana, Chocobo’s Chocotto Farm, and Final Fantasy X GREE (temporary title) were also announced. Final Fantasy X GREE will have cards from characters from the entire Final Fantasy series.

 

Update: Famitsu posted screenshots of Final Fantasy X GREE and The World Ends With You Live Remix.

    Why am I not surprised?

    • Luna Kazemaru

       because social games are big in Japan lol.

  • Curan_Altea

    At least there’s something new. Hopefully it’s popular.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    I can’t wait to hear some more about Circle of Mana. That FFXGree thing looks pretty interesting from those screens as well.

  • Tien Ron

    what is shiek??? for rhyme

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    GREE GREE GREE everywhere. Japan mobile phone gaming seems to have 90% of their games makes by GREE here lol.

      GREE is taking over the gaming world O.O with fan RAGE lol.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      well its well known in Japan i thing just like hangame for browsers.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Yeah. but i kinda wanted to see other mobile phone game company does the game too as seeing Gree monopolize the market is not really nice, i think?T_T

    • Budgiecat

      Japanese people are workaholics and don’t have the time or patience to play games at home anymore! Plus they love their cell phones. Also the West hates Japanese games! So….well they say forget em!

  • natchu96

    Can they quit milking every franchise they own already . . .

    It makes sense for business, but not EVERY SINGLE THING AT ONCE!

    • Luna Kazemaru

       How do you call something a franchise and it only had one game?

      • https://twitter.com/#!/SplashdownTiger STiger

        I think he meant IP but he’s still technically correct.

  • Barrylocke89

    I really hope THIS wasn’t the “New 7 Days” Teaser at the end of the Solo Remix.

    Waitaminute. Solo Remix…Live Remix…

    …*sigh*

       It would seem that way, yes.

      Well, TWEWY will go down in history as one of SE’s biggest one time hit games then. It worked out splendidly well as it was, so we’ll just have to live with it I guess.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    :|  Solo Remix Live Remix they turned it to a social game  -_- so that ending in the solo remix was just foreshadowing this?…….. :| :| -_- I don’t even want to flip a table at this point.

      They should have just made a sequel with social aspects i.e. using 3DS StreetPass.  It’s like developers don’t know that’s a feature…

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        That would have worked out too

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        I don’t think that this is what SE is teasing though. After all we don’t see any pics of the new girl chara.

        Be positive there.^_^ i am sure we will get a new title for this series in 3DS.^_^ And of course this time using Street Pass maybe for getting Alien? Or pin battle?^_^

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Be positive bro. All this negativity is not good for your health.^_^

    • OnlineVirus

      I think the Square Enix confirmed that the picture is NOT about this game… They also said that this game is set in a alternate dimension like “Another Day” in World ends with you. Can’t remeber where they said these things, so you can take my info like a grain of salt… :p

  • http://Gematsu.com/ Bruno Silva

    So Circle of Mana is a social game eh? Expected as much. I’m not particularly pleased with it, but I understand there’s a market for these games in Japan, so I understand why SE is doing it.

    Even if as a fan it kinda bums me out.

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

    ………….. If it gives them fund for a new TWEWY game…. I’m cool with it…

    • http://Gematsu.com/ Bruno Silva

       They’ll just use the money to work on a new FF XIII game :3

      Nah, I kid. Well, I don’t want to give SE any ideas at the very least, lol.

      • OatMatadoQuatro

        Who knows? If the next TWEWY game is called “The World Ends With Lightning”, Square would release it in two months.

  • riceisnice

    I hate GREE simply because they instill false hope when we discover trademarks. But those social games do look kinda fun.

  • Pichi

    My problem with GREE is that alot of their games seem to have that card battling system with gambling elements. Not enough genre variety.

  • http://twitter.com/Linka13 Linka

    Doubt this is what the hype-chan picture was teasing, at least. That seemed to imply new characters, and this seems to reuse the original TWEWY ones.

    That and I doubt they’d be having auditions for a social game that would most likely be reusing sound clips.

    Guess it’s for funding a new game but… meh…

    At the very least, we get some new badass artwork out of this! (=D)

  • Ethan_Twain

    This is good!  TWEWY brand expansion suggests that, as long as neither this nor the iOS port really bombs, Square Enix is looking into opportunities to turn this into one of their stable franchises.  It is inevitable if Square Enix successfully monetizes the TWEWY brand on the iOS and Gree, they will eventually make a whole new video game.  And that’s what everyone wants, right?

    So root for this game – keep an eye on any Siliconera stories updating us on it’s success (or lack thereof).  Even though this isn’t the product western fans were hoping for, it’s still a product that benefits western fans if it succeeds.

    • Rock Volnutt

       You’re delusional now.

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. Girl in the upper part of the picture where the chars pose like a team- a new character? Just someone they added for this game? She’s got reaper-wings, so my interest is piqued…
