Was Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Inspired By The World Ends With You?

By Spencer . June 3, 2009 . 12:00pm

The art style and seven day time limit gives Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor a The World Ends With You vibe. During an interview I asked Atlus if one game set the stage for the other.

The World Ends With Neku wearing a dress

By Spencer . April 29, 2008 . 7:11am

While we’re discussing the World Ends With You, did you notice how Square Enix crafted the equipment system? Instead of regulating “threads” (read: armor) by level, bravery determines what you can wear.   Shiki, Neku’s female friend and first partner, has her bravery over 100 at the beginning of the game while Neku's bravery is […]

The World Ends With You versus actual Shibuya

By Spencer . March 15, 2008 . 7:52pm

One of the clever features about Grand Theft Auto franchise is seeing familiar landmarks. You enter Las Vegas, I mean Las Venturas in San Andreas and drive around in pseudo New York City in Grand Theft Auto III.   The World Ends With You pulls a similar feat except it doesn’t mask the setting. Neku’s […]

This April the World Ends With You

By Spencer . February 14, 2008 . 12:59pm

On April 22, Square Enix is going to release the World Ends With You in North America. Unlike Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest, the World Ends With You is heavily infused with Japanese culture and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be retooled for the West. Neku Sakuraba keeps his name and the setting […]

By Spencer . December 5, 2007 . 10:03am

A few weeks ago we mentioned Square-Enix trademarked “The World Ends With You” and how it might be related to Subarashiki Kono Sekai (It’s a Wonderful World). Actually, it’s not might any more. The World Ends With You is the official international title for Subarashiki Kono Sekai. Square-Enix plans to bring it out in Europe […]

Square-Enix introduces new trademarks, hints at Subarashiki Kono Sekai?

By Spencer . October 29, 2007 . 12:30pm

QBasic sent in some detective work (thanks!!!) and sent in a list of five new trademarks from Square-Enix: – The World Ends With You – Crystal Tools – Distant Worlds – Lord of Vermillion – Play!

By Rolando . September 3, 2007 . 1:54pm

After briefly talking about It's A Wonderful World (Subarashiki Kono Sekai) a few weeks back and taking a brief hiatus due to outer conflicts, I've taken that liberty of free time to dive a lot further into the game and really get a feel for how its mechanics works. Of course, if you're wondering whether […]

It’s (the beginning of) a Wonderful World

By Rolando . August 9, 2007 . 6:31pm

This past weekend, I was fortunate enough to receive It's A Wonderful World in the mail from Play-Asia and have spent a small amount of time with the game due to real world issues conflicting. I'm going to refrain from mentioning anything regarding the game's plot and not mention enough gameplay mechanics, since that's to […]

It’s A Wonderful World dated in Japan

By Rolando . May 11, 2007 . 12:54am

It’s A Wonderful World is just one of those titles that hasn’t really had much said about it aside from the fact that time plays a huge issue in the game and player’s will control one character with the stylus and another character traditionally (d-pad + buttons on DS). Sounds like a pretty interesting concept, […]
