Square Enix's The World Ends With You is, let's face it, pretty sensational: innovative, individual and impossibly stylish, it's received critical acclaim since launch. Like many great games, however, the question of a sequel looms over it like an irritating Noise: Tetsuya Nomura, the game's designer, wants to see a sequel, and he's not afraid to say so.
I’m really happy that the game was so well received in North America. I definitely want to make a sequel. I’m very busy working on other titles right now, but when the time is right, I would love to make another instalment of The World Ends with You.
Although currently busy with several Final Fantasy projects, the fact that Nomura wants to create a sequel to one of the DS's best-loved RPGs is tantalising indeed, so perhaps we could see a follow-up on 3DS within a few years.
