The World Ends With You

Best DS Game EVER!

Seriously this game owns so much. I just wish Joshua didn't suck until end game.

Discuss this game.

I played it in Japanese (when it was It's A Wonderful World) and was very, very impressed. Sadly i couldn't progress very far since I couldn't read a damn thing of what was going on, but the game mechanics were VERY impressive. Quite solid.

I am miffed however that Nomura Tetsuya seems incapable of coming up with unique character designs anymore, nor does he seem capable of coming up with an original plot. Let's see:

"Evil shadow creatures composed of people's negative emotions are attacking people; a young man comes across an unusual artifact that lets him fight them. Along the way, he begins to discover the evil secret organization behind it all, who consists of a number of strange individuals each with a peculiar quirk or talent, whom he will meet in ascending order of power."

Yeahhh >>; Ok, ok, so this has the whole "it's in Shibyua, and you're psychic, and there's a 7 day time limit!" but... um. Yeah. >>;

Still, unusual game mechanics make up for it.

Eh, the twist is pretty good. That's the most important part - after deceiving you into thinking it's the classical cliché story it has a nice turnaround.

From screen shots I was definitely unimpressed by the character design. I thought, "Hmm. Why are Sora and Kairi dressed up as street thugs? Is Square enix appealing Kingdom Hearts to a new demographic?"

But I'm definitely going to get this. I am a moderate whore for Kingdom Hearts, so this'll fill the void tll 368/2.

Speaking of which: 368/2 days is the worst title ever for a game. I mean, yes, I'm going to buy it of course (PLAYING AS ZEXION YES PLZKTHXBAI?!) but ugh.

How is "The World Ends with You" emo at all? Jesus, you guys must have a fucked up definition of emo.

It's not like it is called "Life sucks, lets cut ourselves".

Most Egotistical, Narcissistic game ever, sure. But nothing I've read makes it sound emo.

The Most Emo Game Ever goes to the the "I Can't Believe Mom Won't Let Me Stay Out Until 11pm, I Mean, Christ, It's Just A Fucking Friday! That's It, I'm Cutting My Wrists. Stupid Mom!" series.

#1 uses blades, sure.. but #2 expands it by allowing you to overdose on drugs. I understand #3 lets you use belts from the rafters, but we'll see. I can't wait for the demo!

... also? The Japanese title was "It's A Wonderful World."

They couldn't use it in English becuase of copyright reasons.

And there's no way in hell you can construe that as emo.

Unless it's like, IDK, "Damn it's sunny and beautiful outside! The birds are singing and LIFE IS SO GREAT. I think I'll cut myself now."

I can't quite answer that yet...though from what I can gather, it muddles peoples' emotions/thoughts. So maybe it's emotional noise? I dunno. In any case, it's given me reason to (with good reason) yell "FUCK THIS NOISE", and mean it. :D

But from what I've played (only on Day 5, week 1), the game is FANTASTIC. And I actually like the costumes/character design.

Because the game is based around music/fashion. And yeah, sorta what McLovin said, but mostly what I said :P.


@Fearbears?!: Oh right, yeah my title is just there for irony, because I've said multiple times on the forum that I'm awesome and also that I'm never depressed or sad.

So I actually got this game and have the following to say:

-Combat's fun but moves a little too fast for my liking. Maybe I'll get used to it, but I find it really damn hard to dash and keep track of all the various slashes/etc that Neku needs AND manage to pull off proper combos with Shiki AND remember our Synch Attack. Bleeegh.
-Dear god I hate the protagonists. It's nice to understand the menus, but I'm almost regretting understanding what Neku and Shiki are saying. 99% of the time I want to smack Neku upside the head and yell JUST TELL HER WHAT YOU'RE THINKING, DIPSHIT, AND STOP BEING SUCH AN EMO NARCISSISTIC MORON. And Shiki? "FUCK YOU WOMAN DON'T LET THAT BASTARD PUSH YOU AROUND LIKE THAT. HE TRIED TO FUCKING KILL YOU AND YET YOU JUST TAKE IT IN STRIDE LIKE THAT?! I know you need partners in this game but did you have to attach yourself to a guy who amounts to an abusive jerkface?

Ugh, fuck Japan and their goddamn misogyny. Seriously, I could write a freaking phonebook of feminist criticism about this game and it would NOT be pretty. Unless something changes after Day 4.

*grumbles* I really have to write a videogame someday so that I can get a freaking female protagonist who is not a busty freak or a sex object or an ice queen and still manages to be badass.

My only qualms with the game are pin evolution (What?

He is pretty cool, but "zetta" fucking pisses me off so fucking much.

And Nyarlothep... Neku isn't fucking emo, jesus. Everyone's definition of emo fucking sucks cock. His philosphy is simply "I have my own values and others have theirs as long as they don't bother me then I don't care" - how the FUCK is that emo? It's not like he ever fucking pities himself or thinks that his live is crap or is suicidal.

Spoilers
Spoiler:
Hell, He has to redo the game 3 FUCKING TIMES and he still doesn't complain about it, he still tries as hard as he can to win AND COME BACK TO LIFE


The most you can blame Neku for (even from right at the start, before his development) is being anti-social, I guess anti-social = emo now.

The Secret Report thing is just to add more time onto the game and to see the story from another perspective but I wish I didn't have to fucking go through all the required shit each time I wanna try the day over to get the secrets (ie. I wish I could explore straight off without having Shiki say "We needa go here").

Spoiler:
I'm just pissed that I probably have to do a stupid secret report thing to find out what Rhyme's Entry Fee was


Pin evolution kinda sucks, I just realized that this Big Bang Pin can't fucking evolve and it says "Has no power on it's own" and has "???" boot. :-/

Also I really want the 24 eat space ability thing but I'm too lazy to redo storyline for scarlite (sp?)

Side Note: My entry fee would totally fuck me over, so would most people's from XKCD I think...

Spoiler:
Joshua sucks giant cock until he can jump :-/. But right now he fucking kicks so much ass, doing like 500 on x5 multiplier or some shit

A much less time consuming way, and the rather cheap way that I used to get the SDPP evolutions: save. Shut off your DS. Reset time to 7 days ahead. Start game again. Repeat. Cheating? Maybe. Effective? Definitely.

... ok you're totally right. I just got to Day 6 last night and the game pulled a complete Mind Screw on me o_O; Wow.

And now I'm on Week 2 and confused XD

I have a LOT of trouble with 1. the upper screen and 2. dashing. Esp now that I have Josh and he seems to operate differently than Shiki. My strategy is to basically just blindly press the side arrow a lot and set the AI to take over instantly if I'm not doing it becuase I forget. x_X;

Even so, I can still manage to fight most battles with my level set to 1 (not bossfights though. The boss at the end of Week 1 I had to retry on Easy) which means I get phat lewts. I ended Week 1 with exactly 99,999 yen and even more pins.

So er, what's this secret report thing? some way of re-playing the game to get extra stuff?

Actually you only get phat lewtz from higher difficulties, lower level just increases the drop rate (but they're still shitty items). I find if you're not farming some rare shit then 10* is fine.

Edit: How do You get scarlite (sp?) after the end of the game?

You don't get anymore from the storyline, the only way I've found is in the Shiba-Q department store (near Ubagawa.......that one place with the CAT mural), floor one. However, you need Tektektite/rare metal, Orichalum (Play the Dogenzaka red frogs on hard mode), and Dark matter (play some monster on Ultimate, trying to figure it out right now.)
EDIT: I caved, and looked up dark matter. It's dropped by a boss, so spoilers
Spoiler:
reaper beat, Taboo Sho Minamimoto

On ultimate....with a .5 drop rate
(note: to fight him, go to S. Day 4, And the blue symbol is in the 104 area.)
Then again, the guide's incomplete. I'll keep looking around online.
DOUBLENINJAEDIT: Ok, I invested a bunch of yen and made friends with the shopkepers a little more. Dark matter can be bought with a LVL 4 FSG with the same shop clerk (buy Leather, you need it to buy some cool outfits) by plopping down 10 shadow matters, which can be found by beating taboo noise on ultimate. I'll see if i can buy some shadow matter,too
Triple quick edit: no shadow matter, full friendship with all 3 shopkeepers
Nyarlothep, The drop %'s in the noise report adjust themselves to your current level. Just find the lowest possible to get a 100%drop rate. BTW, you can buy a bigger wallet in the...(jumps chapters) Shibuya Department store, by the scramble crossing.


The secret reports are text tying up the loose ends the plot didn't solve, you get them by doing bonus objectives assigned to each chapter (typically: kill the pig noises, find the hilarious item (Mr. Mew suit FTW), kill the boss noise on hard or above, collect yesterday's report)
Spoiler:
Who Mr. H really is, Rhyme's entry fee...so on


MClovin, I know, I just hoped there was an easier way (that way is easy, I mean one that feels less...cheaty)


Also, the only time Neku is emo is the secret chapter, and he solves that by playing.....TIN PIN!!!
(Must....fight...emo...urges)
("sometimes I just feel so...emo, you know?)
("Blue [neku] already has the group's emo position filled)

This post is probably FULL of spoilahs.


Yeah the secret chapter owns!

Anyway don't I need fucking scarlite (sp, again) to get the ultimate difficulty thing? I'll have to look again.

Anyway I find it's much easier to get Orichalum by fighting the black bird/dragon 'bosses' outside Shiba-Q (thats the place with the 16 reduction chain and 24 byte ability things right? I'm not playing right now so I can't check if we're talking about the same place...) in the secret chapter on hard. Just use Joshy and jump up and they can't hurt him then blast the fuck out of them.


My favourite Brand of pins so far is Jupiter, I got the Best Slashing Pin, the Best Upper Cut Pin, I'm trying to evolve the best rapid stabbing pin (which is jupiter) and I've also picked up the 3 50% heal Jupiter pin, I did have that 4 heal one but I find running full jupiters better.

Still trying to figure out what the fuck to do with this Bing Bang Pin and other pins that are similar.



Edit: Also those dragon bosses ALWAYS stay on one side of the screen on the top screen, so it's pretty simple to just Go...

Up-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-etc.

Also it actually fucking sucks fighting those dragons without joshy because they do this bigass fire (noise looking fire) shit that totally rapes your top guy unless he can stay in the air indefinitely.


Super Ultimate Edit TWO: Oh yeah, I forgot to say I how I love the "Bravery" stat. At first I was like "lolwhut" but then I realise that it was refering to how brave you'd be to wear that type of fashion. Which is why all the chick stuff has a high bravery requirement because it's more girly/revealing, and hence why Shiki's bravery is off the charts compared to the guys (because they just wear baggy cargos :P). Anyway I need that 24 byte eating thing so I can get everyone upto 800 bravery really quickly to wear psycho-ass samurai costumes.


SUPER P.S. I JUST THOUGHT OF: AKA do you have any idea where to get Sho's Cap's Ability IDed?

Yeah, the Bravery stat is just hilarious in every way, shape, and form.

I'm only on like day 4 week 2, I think. Hmm...

Where are you guys getting this info, btw? Gamefaqs has not availed me.

Also: I'm trying to evolve pins (like the Masamune and Murasame. I like slashy-type pins, damn it. AoE and bullets can go screw themselves) but, er... how does this happen? I can't find any information. One of my pins randomly leveled, and to my dissapointment I found that EVERYTHING drops 'em in Week2.

Hard mode, eh? I think I'll beat the game once and then try to go through the second time level 1 on Ultimate. Fat chance of course; I couldn't beat the week 1 boss without going to Easy. I suck at controlling the upper part of the screen, which seems to be pretty vital in becoming awesome (ie, I can't really jump. I suck at multitasking.)

All three at once, right?

Okay, maybe just the first two.

Beyond Good & Evil manages all three AND is a great game.

Reviews on this thread have made me go get this game...
Its AMAZING!

Also, hard to pirate, as the transfer rate from most flash carts can't handle the amount of music this game plays without ruining the sound quality.

Yeah the secret chapter owns!

Anyway don't I need fucking scarlite (sp, again) to get the ultimate difficulty thing? I'll have to look again.

Anyway I find it's much easier to get Orichalum by fighting the black bird/dragon 'bosses' outside Shiba-Q (thats the place with the 16 reduction chain and 24 byte ability things right? I'm not playing right now so I can't check if we're talking about the same place...) in the secret chapter on hard. Just use Joshy and jump up and they can't hurt him then blast the fuck out of them.


My favourite Brand of pins so far is Jupiter, I got the Best Slashing Pin, the Best Upper Cut Pin, I'm trying to evolve the best rapid stabbing pin (which is jupiter) and I've also picked up the 3 50% heal Jupiter pin, I did have that 4 heal one but I find running full jupiters better.

Still trying to figure out what the fuck to do with this Bing Bang Pin and other pins that are similar.



Edit: Also those dragon bosses ALWAYS stay on one side of the screen on the top screen, so it's pretty simple to just Go...

Up-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-Left-etc.

Also it actually fucking sucks fighting those dragons without joshy because they do this bigass fire (noise looking fire) shit that totally rapes your top guy unless he can stay in the air indefinitely.

1. Certain pins come in "sets," if you collect and equip all of them, you get a super special awesome ability
2. J of the M does indeed rock. I think there's a pin that gives you 5 +heal though, the one with the smiley face (not looking at game now)
3. Dragons are too slow, you can go to Cat Street and get 3X Orichalums per battle
4. Bravery....when you run out of bytes eat pumpkin soup (?) from wildkat, 6bytes, +2 bravery
5. Minamimoto's cap's ability comes from Wildkat, like most of the gatito special stuff.


@CogDissident, you ninja. Get the game.

@Nyarlothep, Combination of Gamefaqs, randomly surfing the board there, and an uncompleted wiki
http://twewy.wikia.com/wiki/The_World_Ends_With_You
also, pins level based on a combination of 3 types of PPs
1Battle. self explanatory
2Mingle. If you have no friends (emo), then just leave it on overnight. "Aliens" will randomly appear and give you 100 ea
3Shutdown. Change the DS clock. Win.
I just go with base/pre-evo'd pins. Evolution is for losers. Crunch! I'll add it to the heap.

I'm using R4DS and it runs 100% perfectly.

@AKA: Ah I see, I thought that might be it. I wonder if there is like a J of the M set. The smiley face one isn't a jupiter pin I don't think, and I think it might be only +4.. in any case I like +3 + 50% better, at least for now. (I hated when my old smiley face evolved into a 30%+cure one...)

Do you know how to get Civs in Mingle?


Also you can buy some of the pins from the ESP'ers you meet in mingle, which is handy if they're hard to get.

Same. Hell, it runs better than the legit Japanese copy I have.

D2W1 Moai Room on Ultimate = Monies. (Lots of very easy, very quick 5000 yen pins)


Edit: How the FUCK do I beat the pig on level 2 pork city in the secret chapter!?

My friend's M3 Simply and my own Ninjapass both have scratchy audio in game, so inferring from two to mean "most" is a bit of a stretch. But still, it requires a fast transfer rate Flash Cart.

Also, its such a good game I would buy it anyway (because, honestly, I actually do pay for games that I've pirated if they end up being worth it).
