I refuse to get excited. Hinting at is in the iOS version terrifies me, because it suggests the game is coming to that platform. If it weren't incompatible with the platforms I want it on, that wouldn't be terrifying.
Yep. They're better off abandoning the two-screen mechanic as far as gameplay is concerned as long as this new game is built from the ground up with a single touchscreen in mind, then being able to put it out on multiple platforms at once. This series deserves to be a big deal, which means making it multiplat, IMO.
They did announce that they will be more games to come. I wouldn't be surprised if its announced for both the Iphone and the 3DS
In a recent interview given by Tatsuya Kando, director of the recently ported game The World Ends With You, he said that there are still "many more developments" still planned for the title beyond the iOS port.
The recent port features a revamped Fusion combat system, as well as upgraded high-definition art and touchscreen menus. A wireless arcade feature allows players to connect with fellow iOS gamers in the "Tin Pin Slammer" bonus game.
The port retails for US$17.99 on iPhone and US$19.99 for iPad, and includes composer Takeharu Ishimoto's 60-song soundtrack.
