the only villain on staff
During the stage show for The World Ends With You: Final Remix during Tokyo Game Show 2018, Creative Producer and Main Character Designer Tetsuya Nomura provided a message to fans about the future of TWEWY as a series.
“This release, 11 years later, is entirely thanks to the dedicated fans of ‘The World Ends With You’. Rather than call this a ‘remaster’, I like to think of this version of the game as a ‘new beginning!’ I will be working hard on future development that will make you glad that you supported this game so passionately for so long.”
