This April the World Ends With You



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 is still Shibuya. Considering how more Japanese games aren’t getting “Westernized” this isn’t out of the ordinary, but I’m quite interested to see how North America reacts to the World Ends With You when it arrives in stores. Could the World Ends With You sell better in the West than it did in Japan?
