Details regarding the upcoming release of The World Ends With You OST have been changed. The price for the original soundtrack has been reduced, as the number of CDs available in the collection was also reduced. Instead of releasing on two CDs, The World Ends With You OST will now release on one. That said, the price for the collection has dropped from ¥3,300, or $30, to ¥2,750 or roughly $25.
The information was released through the official The World Ends With You: The Animation Twitter account. However, despite the reduction in the number of CDs, the product itself has not changed. The original soundtrack will still feature a total of fifty-four songs. This includes the opening and ending theme for The World Ends With You: The Animation.
Additionally, the original soundtrack will still release on June 30, 2021. Customers who have already pre-ordered the OST will receive an updated billing fee with the adjusted price. Pre-orders will also come with a special “mega jacket” featuring unique artwork. As it stands, there is currently no word of a potential Western release for the original soundtrack.
The World Ends With You: The Animation debuted in Japan on April 9, 2021. North American viewers can watch the anime through the Funimation streaming service.
