We provided the trailer yesterday, now you can read the press release. Game is great, so definitely worth checking out if you have an iOS device. Square Enix did a great job with it. The game is $17.99 for the iPhone version and $19.99 for the iPad version.

From the press release:

    Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announced that The World Ends with You®: Solo Remix is now available to download from the App Store™ for iPhone® and iPad® platforms. A new The World Ends with You: Solo Remix official site will launch alongside the game’s release.

    Solo Remix, the mobile version of the critically acclaimed action RPG, brings players back to the streets of Shibuya as Neku with new tracks and new social gameplay elements specifically designed for mobile players.

    ■ Story
    A boy named Neku wakes up in a crowded intersection of Shibuya in the heart of Tokyo-alone and unaware of how he got there. Then, he receives a text message: “Clear this mission…or face erasure.” With that, Neku is thrust into a life-or-death game that sends him scrambling down streets paved with one riddle after another.

    ■ Enjoy quick, satisfying and intuitive battles
    Activate combat abilities, or “psychs,” with simple touch commands like tapping, slashing, and dragging. Control Neku and his partner on the same screen and take the combat up a notch, and boost item drops in battle with the revamped Fusion system.

    ■ Wireless arcade action with friends
    Use the pins equipped in the main story to play Tin Pin Slammer. Take on other players with iPhones or iPads and copies of The World Ends with You, and be the first to knock opponents’ pins off the table.

    ■ Redrawn art and Retina display support
    Enjoy the game in full HD on Retina-enabled iPad or iPhone 4 or later devices. Art and animation across the game has been redrawn for this release, making combat a beautiful experience.

    ■ The ultimate soundtrack: 60 songs
    Composer Takeharu Ishimoto’s complete soundtrack is included in the game with high-quality audio and full vocals, including remixes and new songs.

    ■ Tweets amid the hustle and bustle
    The world doesn’t end with Shibuya. Tap into the Internet and populate the minds of in-game streetgoers with tweets.

    ■ Profile sharing
    Exchange profiles with other players, and their avatars will appear in the streets of Shibuya! If friends have Twitter accounts, their avatar will think their latest tweet, and players can receive free items for every trade!

    ■ Deep replay value
    Finish the main story to unlock a bonus chapter, more quests and items to find, new combat challenges, and secret reports that further flesh out the story.

    ■ Explore a living, breathing city
    Neku’s sprawling world is based on the real-life Shibuya in Tokyo. Visit real locations and absorb some real Japanese culture through a hip fantasy lens.
