The World Ends with You: Final Remix will land on Switch in October.

Originally a Nintendo DS game, The World Ends with You: Final Remix was announced for Nintendo Switch in January. The game is an updated version of the handheld release with HD visuals.

Along with spiffy visuals, it contains a new epilogue shedding light on the game’s story, which stars the character Neku Sakuraba. He along with others have been brought back to life to participate in a game featuring rhythmic battles.

These battles can be fought using either the Switch touch screen or Joy Con controller.

Winners are given a choice: be brought back to life or to transcend to a higher spiritual form. There’s more to the story obviously, but we don’t wish to spoil it for you.

The original title was released in spring 2008 for Nintendo DS. An iOS version was released in 2012 with a new soundtrack.
