Neku Sakuraba, a normal 15 year-old boy with a hobby for music and graffiti, suddenly had woken up in middle of Shibuya one day, a famous shopping district in Tokyo, Japan. Why he's there remains a mystery to him. All of a sudden, the thoughts of the people surrounding him began to enter his head at once. It must had been happening because of the mysterious badge he held in his hand. Suddenly, Neku's cellphone rings with a text message on it. It says that if he wants to live, he'll have to fulfill a set of orders entitled "Death's Game" which must be completed under a 7 days limit.Most of the gameplay focuses on finding clues and battling Noise. Players can use Neku's empathetic abilities to hear people's thoughts by using the touch screen of the Nintendo DS whenever they wish. The game's combat system, titled Stride Cross Battle System, uses both screens of the Nintendo DS; where one of four protagonists is displayed on the top screen and Neku is displayed on the bottom, with battle actions taking place simultaneously between both characters. Players use the touch screen to move and attack with Neku, whose revealed abilities include lightning, fire, telekinesis (moving objects), and healing magic.Subarashiki Kono Sekai: It's a Wonderful World is developed by the Kingdom Hearts.

Contrived story, disinteresting characters. Your money'd be better spent elsewhere.
Didn't like it at all. The combat system is aweful. It takes two control schemes that aren't particularly interesting and combines them into one that is just ridiculous. The characters are painful. Main character's your classic coming-of age, dripping with angst anti-hero who realizes that it's alright to rely on people. Graphic style is interesting.

Not the worst RPG I've played but definitely not very good.

The World Ends With You
Set in Shibuya, one of Tokyo's top fashion shopping districts, The World Ends With You tells the story of Neku Sakuraba, a gloomy 16-year-old who detests humans company so much he wishes for the world to leave him alone. Things get surreal when Neku finds himself in the middle of a crowded scramble crossing, without knowing how he got there or why mutant frogs are suddenly materialising out of thin air and attacking them. He calls out to the crowd for help but is simply ignored (after all, he did wish to be left alone). Finally, a girl named Shiki Misaki responds. The two form a pact which results in the unlocking of latent psychic abilities that enable them to battle the cursed creatures. Neku later learns from Shiki that they were both enrolled into the Reaper's Game, a seven-day contest resembling Survivor, where participants, in teams of two, are to tackle a specified mission every day. Fail, and your right to exist is revoked. The cheesy premise may sound typically Japanese, but press forth and you shall be treated to one of the most intriguing storylines ever told in a handheld role-playing game (RPG). Each passing day in the game reveals a startling truth about Neku's bizarre circumstances, such as how he lost his memory of what prizes await victory. Then there are the numerous plot twists, executed so brilliantly they would make even M. Night Shyamalan, director of movies such as Signs and The Village blush. Complementing the story are creative gameplay elements. Puzzles are solved by scanning strangers' minds and implanting thoughts and food can be consumed and burned off to earn statistical boosts. Then there is the cornerstone: A frenetic combat system that has you commanding Shiki on the top screen with the directional pad while simultaneously tapping, slashing or rubbing away on the lower screen to activate Neku's psychic powers. There are over a hundred different powers you can equip Neku with. Yet despite the great variety of powers, few make sense, which makes battles feel more repetitive than they should be. But it's not the end of the world. This small flaw barely makes a dent in an incredibly refreshing RPG that is also the most fashion-forward one this season.

Awsome game
This is one of the must plays.

Great artstyle + graphic(they used 3D effects well), the music rocks, the gameplay is just awsome!
If you can read Japanese reasonably well the storyline great(I worked on my reading skills)
Depending on your ability to play you can choose the difficulty! 8D

One of the best games I came across!

If you are an Kingdom Hearts fan or Square-Enix or Jupiter fan, why not play?
It is also a game for you if you're into hip-hop, grafitti etc, or if you're looking for a good game to play.

omg i love this game
this is freakin awsome, the art rules, the badge fighting system is similar to materia

the badges can level up and some even evolve into more powerful versions

walking around is semi-3d, the 2d stuff moves and skews to give a 3d effect, and neku gets smaller/larger depending where u are on the screen

this is a must get!

theres a reason its so expensive! XD
