The World Ends With You director teases more to come

"Various other things are being prepared," says Kando.

The World Ends With You saw release on iOS platforms this week, but there are “various other things” in the works, according to director Tatsuya Kando.

“To everyone who has been waiting for new developments on The World Ends With You, thank you,” Kando told Famitsu this week. “Solo Remix is a port of the original work, but it’s turned out to be a quality game that feels complete. According to the buzz on Twitter from those playing it, the world feels quite spacious. Various other things are being prepared, so please enjoy Solo Remix until then.”

Kando touched a bit more upon the iOS port. At first, he thought porting the game to the Apple platform was a bad idea.

“I thought it’d be in vain to do on iOS. Since it was a strain to play the game on one screen, it might not be easy for players of the original to get used to. After five years, you could say that the contents of this one is a ‘complete version’, so by all means please download it.”

The World Ends With You: Solo Remix is available now for iPhone and iPad.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.
