■ How to Survive the Reapers’ Game

“Clear this mission or face erasure”—with that, Neku and the others get dragged into the irrational Reapers’ Game. In order to clear their missions, they must solve mysteries at various places in Shibuya and defeat the Noise blocking their path.

—(1) A mission is sent to the participant’s cell phone. Erasure awaits those who are unable to clear this mission within the time limit…

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

—(2) Run around Shibuya in search of hints to clear the mission. Use Psychic Scanning to read Thought Fragments of the people bustling about Shibuya.

—(3) Battle Noise. Work with your partner to defeat the Noise that attack.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

■ Scanning

The participants of the Reapers’ Game can use an ability called “Scanning.” By tapping the pin at the lower right of the screen on the field, the scan field will expand and the Thought Fragments of the surrounding people will flow in.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

—While most Thought Fragments consist of chatter, there may be a hint to clearing your mission hidden among them… Be sure to check everyone.

—A Noise symbol may also appear during a scan. By touching the symbol, a battle against Noise will begin.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

■ Battle

Enjoy touch command battles with intuitive controls that depend on various types of touches to the screen, such as taps and slashes. (When playing with Joy-Cons, a pointer will appear on the screen.) Work together with your partner to atack the enemy and increase your Sync rate. When your sync rate reaches 100 percent, you can use a Fusion special attack that heals Neku’s HP and deals major damage to all of the enemies.

—Fight skillfully alongside your partner to increase your sync rate. Fusions differ depending on the partner and have the feeling of a minigame.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

■ Fusions

A Fusion uses one of three card systems. Also, there are three levels of Fusions, and the higher the rank, the more powerful the Fusion, but the higher the sync rate required.

Neku and Shiki: ESP Cards

Quickly memorize the cards, then tap the ones with the same symbol as the card at the top. The more you get right, the more damage your Fusion will deal, and the higher your drop rate will increase.

Neku and Joshua: Mantic Cards

Tap the cards in numerical order as fast as you can. If you tap the correct cards, your attack power and drop rate will increase. Watch out for the cards written backwards.

Neku and Beat: Kinesis Cards

Tap extra cards to discard them and close the gaps. When two cards of the same suit touch, they will disappear and your attack power and drop rate will increase. Go for a chain reaction.

■ Pins

There are more than 300 pins that Neku can use in battle. Each pin’s effect and how to activate it differs. Pins can be acquired in battle and at the shop.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

Depending on the pin you equip, you can unleash a great variety of attacks. The combination of pins you equip is also important for connecting combos.

As you progress through the story, you will be able to gain more experience points by not playing. Since there are pins that evolve as you level up, be sure to take advantage of this system.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

■ Brands

There are 13 brands throughout all of Shibuya, with most items and pins belonging to a brand. By fighting with your favorite brand’s pins and equipment, you will increase the popularity of the brand in that area.

—The Brand Ranking displays the popularity of brands by rank. While pins of the brands ranked in the top three have increased attack power, be careful as the brand ranked #13 has decreased attack power.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

—Neku and company can buy equippable clothes and other items at the shop. By becoming friends with the shopkeeper, more items will be added to purchase.

■ Reaper Soldiers

Higashizawa (Yodai Higashizawa)

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

This massive Reaper only just hit 20, but he can still demolish a parking lot with one well-placed fist. If there’s a brain somewhere in Higashizawa’s brawn, he often forgets to use it once something gets his emotions cooking.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

■ Reaper Officers

Minamimoto (Sho Minamimoto)

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

Konishi (Mitsuki Konishi)

The World Ends with You: Final Remix

This dangerous vixen may be dressed to serve, but she sits comfortably in the top echelon of Shibuya’s Reapers. Konishi seems to be calling at least some of the shots, but Neku and the others hardly ever see her.

Kitaniji (Megumi Kitaniji)

The World Ends with You: Final Remix
