Tetsuya Nomura Expresses Interest in Continuing The World Ends with You

The World Ends With You

With the impending release of The World Ends with You: Final Mix, the game’s creator Testuya Nomura has teased that he is not finished with the sleeper hit.

Final Mix, which is set to launch on Nintendo Switch on October 12, adds a few new scenarios to the original game, as well as offering significant modern polish. After showing the port off at The Tokyo Games Show, Nomura stated that he saw the remaster as a “new beginning” as opposed to an end:

“This release, 11 years later, is entirely thanks to the dedicated fans of The World Ends With You. Rather than call this a ‘remaster’, I like to think of this version of the game as a ‘new beginning!’ I will be working hard on future development that will make you glad that you supported this game so passionately for so long.

Alongside this revelatory statement, Nomura also commented on how the Switch version is different than its predecessors, including a brand-new epilogue sequence called ‘A New Day’:

“We talked a lot about this kind of story scenario way back when we originally developed the game 11 years ago. “What would happen next?,” we thought. Once we decided to develop this new version of the game, we knew it was our opportunity to make those original plans come to life, but we didn’t want the addition just to be a little stinger at the end of game. Rather, we wanted to create a full, playable story scenario that really stands on its own and connects to, or hints at, the original story. And as for the placement, it definitely takes place after the ending and is a continuation of the story.”

The World Ends with You originally released on the Nintendo DS in 2007 to fantastic critical reception, with a dual-screen combat system that is yet to be replicated. Since then, the title has gone on to be ported to mobile.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
