SuperGroupies reveals The World Ends With You merch

The World Ends With You is having a real resurgence lately. Fans begged for more of the franchise for years, which lead to mobile ports of the original game, and then a Switch revamp. That was followed by the announcement and reveal of The World Ends With You: The Animation, an anime slated for 2021. Now we have even more TWEWY goodness with a new merch line from SuperGroupies.

SuperGroupies has revealed a line of The World Ends With You merch that includes multiple variations on backpacks, watches, and wallets. You can preorder the items now, with bags and wallets due to ship out in Nov. 2020, and watches sometime in Dec. 2020. Check out the various designs here.

Character art released for The World Ends With You: The Animation

Getting into characters

Last night, we got to see the debut trailer for The World Ends With You: The Animation, a 3DCG anime that will see worldwide release in 2021. That's quite a way's off, but at least we have some more content to look at right now.

The official website for The World Ends With You: The Animation has added character profiles for the series, which gives us some character art to enjoy. Take a look at the various character profiles here.

The World Ends With You: The Animation launches worldwide in 2021 and will be 3DCG, debut trailer shared

The world ends in 2021

Anime Expo Lite kicked off with the reveal of The World Ends With You: The Animation, which was announced for worldwide release in 2021. Domerica is working on the project, and they've revealed that it's a 3DCG project, rather than just straightforward 2D animation. It was also mentioned that Takeharu Ishimoto, composer on The World Ends With You, is handling the music for the anime. Along with that, Tetsuya Norma will be involved as well. You can check out the official synopsis below.

Make your way through “Shibuya” and survive the seven-day “Reaper’s Game”!

The main character Neku wakes up in the middle of a busy Shibuya Crossing Intersection unaware of how he got there.
He’s in an alternate plane of existence called the Underground (UG).

Unknowingly forced to participate in the “Reaper’s Game”, Neku must partner with Shiki, a teenage girl player whom he meets.

Neku must fight to survive by completing the missions thrown at him and defeating the creatures called “Noise.” By doing so, he will confront the “Reaper’s Game” along with the truth buried deep inside his memory.

“The only way to survive is to trust your partner”

Will they survive the “Reaper’s Game”…?

Screenwriter: Midori Goto (Sanzigen)
Character Design: Tetsuya Nomura & Gen Kobayashi (Square Enix)

Metal Max 3 gets a fan translation

Metal Max 3 released for the DS in Japan back in 2010. The title never saw a localization outside of Japan, which is why fans have swooped in to take care of things. The big focus in this installment is tank customization, as the game lets you make all kinds of crazy designs. You can get a look at the fan translation via the trailer above.

OverClocked ReMix announces 'Golden Sun: A World Reignited' tribute album

Nintendo may not be doing much with the Golden Sun series lately, but fans are willing to swoop in and show some love.

The gang at OverClocked ReMix have announced Golden Sun: A World Reignited, a new community arrangement album. This album will feature 37 arrangements of tunes from both Golden Sun & Golden Sun: The Lost Age, coming from 43 artists. There's no official release date yet, but it should be coming soon!

WayForward says their 'wheels are already turning' for the next Shantae game, show interest in more Mighty Flip Champs/Switch Force

Work never stops at WayForward

WayForward may have just released Shantae and the Seven Sirens, but it seems they're already looking forward to the next Shantae adventure. In an interview with NWR, WayForward's Matt Bozon hinted that things may already be in motion for the next Shantae game.

We have a few different ways we might want to go, assuming that Shantae gets another outing. Our wheels are already turning, and we’re seeing a lot of ideas from fans.

While Shantae is definitely WayForward's shining star, the company certainly has other franchises under their belt. Games like Mighty Switch Force and Mighty Switch Champs were well-received by Nintendo fans, but will we ever see more?

We released Mighty Switch Force! Collection not long ago for all of your Switch Force needs. We’d love to bring Patricia, Alta, or Luna back sometime, too! But we also have a lot of other original titles recently released like Cat Girl Without Salad, Vitamin Connection, and River City Girls. It's just tough to find time!

Square-Enix grabs a new trademark for The World Ends with You

I can't stand the teasing!

It certainly seems like something is going on with The World Ends With You. First we had the Anime Expo Lite promo art that featured The World Ends With You, and now we have a new trademark registration.

Over in Japan, Square-Enix has grabbed a new trademark for The World Ends With You back on June 1st, 2020, and it just went live today. We still don't know what exactly it's related to, but many are hoping it's a new installment in the series. With ties to the Anime Expo Lite, perhaps we'll be seeing some sort of animated adaptation.

Anime Expo Lite kicks off July 3rd, 2020, so we'll likely find out what this is all about then.
