The Power is yet unknown, the power is yet unknown, the power is yet unknown....

Hey, guys, I AM BACK!  And I hope to go back to making this a regular thing.

So, why am I back?

This website

Specifically, how it relates to "The World Ends With You". 

TWEWY was an original property developed by Square Enix.  It was developed to help them understand DS programming for "Kingdom Hearts 358/2".  Honestly, I think it's better then 358/2.  We have complex characters, fantastic artistic design, an amazing story, changing relationships, and that's not even mentioning the gameplay.

But, moving on, what's more interesting right now is the revived interest in the project by Square Enix. 

SE had casually brought up the game before, but no one new the severity until a recent Tokyo Game Show.  Why?  Because the KH3D demo had Neku in it.  As time went on, Joshua, Shiki, Beat, and Rhyme all appeared.  Tetsuya Nomura (the director of the Kingdom Hearts series and character designer for TWEWY) was asked about this, and he implied that the voice casting was for a future project.  (Shiki, Joshua, Beat, and Neku had a few lines in game, but most "speaking" was done through text)

Well, KH3D was released, the TWEWY fans were very happy, then yesterday the SE PR department twitter tweeted out a link to the above website.

We know very little, but between the "Calling" background music, the style of the timer, and the Shibuya style background, it appears we are going back to Shibuya for another game set in TWEWY universe.  (If you want a sneak peak, adjust your date on your computer. The art and music assets up to day 2 have been preloaded onto the site). 

So, what is next?

Well, nothing until that timer hits zero. Tokyo Game Show will finish in the next few days so the timing is rather odd.  Why is the timer set to expire AFTER the game show?  If something was to be announced, why not set the timer for earlier? Is it a set up for the Square Enix Production Department show?  But they should be focusing on the Final Fantasy's 25th Anniversary party.

Any way, we just wait and see what happens.
