Fans believe Square-Enix might have used an Italian fan-translation for The World Ends With You: Final Remix

Did Square-Enix turn to a fan translation for the Italian translation of The World Ends With You: Final Remix? There are some members of the community who are running with those accusations based on what they've seen in the recently-released title.

Back in 2012, fan-translators Mentz and Mewster released an Italian translation for The World Ends With You on DS. Now all these years later, fans who played that fan-translation are noticing a ton of similarities between that work and the Italian translation in The World Ends With You: Final Remix. The accusations even come from Mewster himself, who points out that one particularly absurd translation he did for the DS version has appeared word-for-word in Final Remix.

Square-Enix has not commented on the matter yet, but the evidence is definitely piling up. Do you think this is just a coincidence, or was there some shady business going on?

The World Ends With You producer expresses interest in a sequel

Tetsuya Nomura was one of the producers on The World Ends With You, and it's obvious the game is very near and dear to him.

While we don't have the exact quote, we've learned that Nomura would love the chance to work on a sequel.
