Earlier today I made a trip to Wal-Mart to take a look at the Okami watermark (and to shop around I guess) and I come across "The World Ends With You" by Square Enix. I have only heard a little about the game, and the cover art was very well put together, and with my tax money coming in earlier in the day, I decided to pick it up.
This is the story of Neku Sakuraba, an emo kid with nothing to prove and nobody to impress. While walking down the street he gets a text telling him he has an hour to get to a certain location or he will be erased. Thinking he just got spam, he ignores the message. He also notices he has a timer on his hand and the uncanny ability to read peoples thoughts.
The gameplay is like Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories with a twist, you control two characters at the same time on different screens, so it is a little awkward at the first. The bottom screen uses the stylus and the top screen uses the d-pad. The game is pretty straight forward so far.
I have only played the game for about two hours now but it seems like its the kind of game that will keep my interest until I beat it. I really think you should check out this game. And I hope to have a full review out soon. read
