Welcome to the Reapers' Game.
Introduction: The World Ends With You is a Action RPG Developed by Jupiter and Square Enix. Jupiter helped make Kingdom Hearts Chains of Memories with Square Enix and Square Enix is known for making the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest series.
You are Neku Sakuraba, a teenager that died and woke up one day and found a black skull pin on his hand in the Shibuya District of Tokyo,Japan and find out that you and others are in a game made by the Reapers. In the Reapers' Game, you will meet new people that may join you as your partner, help you, that you have to help, or fight you. In the game you fight the noises which are the monsters in this game.
In the Battle Screen, you will have to fight using both the top and bottom screen, the touch screen you control Neku using pins to attack the noise,pins are the weapons you use for battling the noise,there are over 300 pins in this game. On the top screen is where your partner fights at, to fight using your partner, you will have to use the directional pad or the buttons to attack, you can also not use the directional pad or the button if you want your partner in automatic mode. In the City Screen, you have to use the touch screen to navigate around the area. In the shop screen ,you also have to buy stuff using the touch screen, the currency in this is yen which you can obtain from fighting monsters.
The Music in this game is very strange in this game and yet also nostalgic, there is over 30 Sound Tracks in this game, the music changes when you are in a battle, in a cut scene, a store, or in the city. the sound in this game are just sound effects you can hear when you attack a monster with a certain pin.
The Graphics in this game is all 2d and there are some animated cut scenes that shown better then most of the graphics in this game.
DS to DS: (5/10)
The Ds to DS in this game is just mingling or playing Tin Pin Slammer. Mingling is where you connect to other DS and obtain stuff. Tin Pin slammer is a minigame that you can play.
One of the best games I ever played on the Nintendo DS,I recommend you get it in anyway you can.
