The World Ends With You

The World Ends with You -Solo Remix- is an iOS and Android port of The World Ends with You. The game was revealed on August 26, 2012, and was preceded by a website displaying a week-long countdown to create hype, with a different remix of an in-game song playing on the site each day. It was released the following day for iOS devices.

An Android port was released on June 25, 2014. However, -Solo Remix- was made unavailable for purchase for 64-bit device owners on the Google Play store on July 31, 2021. It is still available for 32-bit devices, or for 64-bit owners to re-download if they have already purchased it.

-Solo Remix- was used as the coding basis for the Nintendo Switch rerelease, The World Ends with You: Final Remix.

New features and changes[]

As an updated port of The World Ends with You, -Solo Remix- features a number of new features and changes to the overall game. For more information, see Solo Remix Technical Changelog.

  • -Solo Remix- features redrawn visuals to take advantage of the higher resolution native to iOS and Android devices, allowing for greater overall clarity of the graphics.
  • -Solo Remix- has an expanded soundtrack, featuring new songs and remixes, and includes songs that were exclusive to the North American and Japanese versions of the original The World Ends with You respectively. Many of these songs play for their entire length, whereas songs were shorter in the original game due to looping earlier to be able to fit on the DS.
  • The gameplay has been revamped to fit on a single screen. This is best seen in the battle system, where the partner is summoned onto the same screen as Neku and fights alongside him, rather than being on a separate screen.
    • A number of dialogue lines that originally referred to the dual-screen gameplay were edited to reflect this particular change in gameplay.
  • -Solo Remix- has *Google Play Games and Game Center integration, with rankings and achievements. The game also had Twitter integration, though this feature has since been removed in an update.

The teaser screenshot

At the end of the secret ending (the ending once all secret reports are obtained), there is a single screenshot of Tsugumi Matsunae at the Scramble Crossing, with the screen on the 104 Building reading "NEW 7 DAYS". This marked her first ever appearance in the series, though her name would not be revealed until the announcement of NEO: The World Ends with You, eight years after the release of -Solo Remix-. Prior to this, she was referred to by some fans as "Hype-chan".
