Get a better look at The World Ends with You's updated visuals on Switch


Need more candy cane

Siliconera has unleashed a bunch of new shots of The World Ends with You: Final Remix on Switch and it looks really promising. While I wouldn't call the DS version ugly by any means, the game running in crisp HD is a real treat. Since the style of the game was so heavily influenced by manga and Japanese street art, seeing those awesome colors pop and getting more defined outlines looks like a big upgrade.

Along with all of that HD art, there are some new details about how the Switch version will work. In handheld mode, the game plays similarly to the DS original, albeit without two screens. You'll have the same slash attacks and "tap spaces," making ample use of the touchscreen. In TV and tabletop mode, controls will be relegated to the joy-con with pointer functionality. There is even a two-player co-op mode with split joy-cons available.

All music, sound effects, and voice samples have been updated with higher quality versions, including an arranged soundtrack by original composer Takeharu Ishimoto. If you don't want to listen to different tracks, the original OST will have a toggle option that can be selected at any moment. The last addition is a brand new scenario for the campaign, though that was already revealed back when the port was unveiled.
