    A few weeks ago we got a teaser on an animated series based on the cult-classic DS game The World Ends With You. Now, we have our first look at what we can expect. Coming in 2021, 'The World Ends With You: The Animation' will retell the events of The World Ends With You with a faithful take on the games unique art-style.



    TWEWY
    was originally released in 2007 for the Nintendo DS, and characters from the game have made cameo appearances in Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. The original title has had re-releases on iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch over the years, but despite its popularity, there has been no word on a sequel.

    If you're a fan of The World Ends With You, check out our review of the Switch release here.

    I am glad they have the time and money to make this but not to fix the iOS 13+ support :glare:
    They actually fixed it, it only took nearly a year!!

    Quite a unique aesthetic, don't think I've ever seen another anime that looks quite like this. Haven't got around to playing the game but I'm definitely intrigued. No word yet which streaming platforms it'll debut on, I'm guessing?

    The Anime Takes 13 years to be initially made.

    SO ZETTA SLOW!

    Honestly though what were they thinking with that music? The game has such an amazing soundtrack and that is what they go with?

    Eh, it's kind of unnecessary.

    I'm just a little disappointed that we'll probably never again see anything like the dual-screen gameplay of the original DS version. They set out to make a special dual-screen experience, and they succeeded.

    It seems they're willing to do everything except give this game a sequel.

    Might be an attempt to reach a wider audiance than the games did to see interest in a proper sequal.

    YES!

    I may read visual novels but i don't like watching anime i only watched: beyblade when i was small, danganronpa 3 anime (only because i really like danganronpa and wanted da plot but ultimatly it was a waste of time), konosuba because i was forced by someone.

    But this is gonna be an exception and i am gonna watch it fast but i mainly hoping that they make a new game after that.

    Well, the director is not the best it can get (nor the studio), but the trailer seems good so let's see what they give us. At least they have good voice actors.
