Rise and shine, Players! Square Enix has put out some new mission mail for all interested up and coming vocalists! In this month's issue of Audition Monthly, Square Enix has put out a full-page listing, asking for vocalists to audition for The World Ends With You. If chosen, the lucky singer will get to make their debut in a new Square Enix game with music produced by Takeharu Ishimoto!

All applicants need to do is record themselves singing the three chorus samples from the provided songs on the official The World Ends With You -crossover- Album site and submit them to Square Enix! Those who audition must be residents of Japan and unsigned, and all submissions are due September 24th! Whoever succeeds might be heard in the game related to this teaser...

if this was for a voice actor (and open to the USA), i'd jump on it in a heartbeat.

alas, i can't sing and a singer is what they're looking for. :/

Definitely one of my fav talent finds by SE. I remember when they held this audition and they found her and she was like "I didn't even expect to be chosen" and SE was so charmed by her voice and the heart she put into the music. ;A;

Now, there is no requirement to be of Japanese descent. Just live in Japan. I can think of a few successful artists that aren't Japanese. Monkey Majik comes to mind, and Emi Evans.

Haha if only I lived in Japan, and my singing experience were more than just one year in highschool choir or singing random songs when no one else is around, I would nail that audition!

Obviously there's much more talented and qualified people out there lol. I guess good luck to the lucky person who wins haha :p

Again, you don't need to speak Japanese or be Japanese. Just live in Japan xD Of course you don't live there, but still.

I was thinking the same thing. C:

If only I could sing well enough, and if I lived in Japan...

So this basically confirms a sequel

Not necessarily a sequel, it could be an in-depth spin-off from the first game, a prequel, or an entirely new game. The girl in the photo has resemblances of all the main cast but that doesn't have to mean she comes after them, and the "New 7 Days" doesn't have to mean "new" to Neku and the cast, but new to the players perhaps? However, I would say this confirms a new TWEWY of some sort is in development.

And this is the day that all the iOS port haters feel like a bunch of idiots.

Nope, they are still butthurt that SE didn't directly announce a sequel <__<

I wish so badly that it wasn't a 'live in Japan only' audition, because if it wasn't, I'd be on it like cheese on nachos.

Plus meat. Can't forget that. I'd be the Jalapenos on them nachos if it were voice acting. D:

If only I were a resident of Japan and could sing! I would do it in a heartbeat. Whoever gets the job is a lucky person.

I hope it's another guy. I love "Three Minutes Clapping" and the male voice in the "Hybrid", "Calling" and "Twister" mash up
