An anime based on The World Ends with You is on the way, Square Enix has revealed.

A teaser site is currently live hereConcrete information is expected during Anime Expo Lite on July 3 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET. Previously, a special piece of art was shared in collaboration with the online event.

The World Ends with You originally came to DS in 2007 (the overseas release happened a year later). Switch then received The World Ends with You: Final Mix in 2018.

Final Fantasy VII has been updated on Switch, and the game is now at version 1.0.2. The update addresses just a couple of issues.

Below are the official patch notes:

Bravely Default II developers Tomoya Asano and Masashi Takahashi spoke more about the RPG in a previous issue of Famitsu. The two hinted at possible online functionality, addressed the chances of another demo with save data transfer, and more.

Here’s the full roundup of tidbits:

If you haven’t been keeping up with the Bravely series, now might be the time for a refresher. The franchise started out on Nintendo 3DS with Bravely Default, which was followed up with a direct sequel, Bravely Second. Now Square-Enix is readying a new game in the franchise, Bravely Default II, for Switch this year.

In an issue of Famitsu, Tomoya Asano (leader of the Asano Team) and Masashi Takahashi (producer) commented on how they settled on the final name. We heard a bit about this previously, but now we have the full explanation.

As translated by Nintendo Everything’s Oni Dino, the two shared the following:

Square Enix has shared an official announcement for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. The rhythm-action game, announced for Switch earlier in the week, has also received an English trailer.

Here’s the full roundup:

Square Enix has issued a new batch of screenshots from Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, which was announced for Switch earlier this week. We have the images below.

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory launches for Switch worldwide in 2020. Read more about the game in our initial post here.

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is in development and will be released on Switch, Square Enix has just announced. It will launch later this year.

Square Enix describes Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory as a rhythm action game. It will feature over 140 songs, including ones from Disney. Four modes will be available, including online battles.

Here’s the debut trailer:

On June 1, Square Enix applied for a new The World Ends with You trademark in Japan. It was officially made public today.

Normally we don’t feel that trademarks filings are noteworthy – particular when it comes to Nintendo, since the company regularly covers its basis for its older systems and games. However, this situation is a bit different.

For one thing, Square Enix doesn’t seem to constantly file trademarks for its older products like Nintendo. We’ve also seen that The World Ends with You is being featured in key art for the upcoming Anime Expo Lite 2020. The World Ends with You: Final Remix also came to Switch a couple of years ago, so perhaps Square Enix has more plans in store for the IP.

Last night, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is launching in Japan on August 27. Just as expected, fans in the west will be getting it around the same time – actually, on the same day. Square Enix has confirmed that we’ll be seeing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition in North America and Europe on August 27.

It currently appears that the game will have a digital-only release overseas. However, Japan will be receiving a physical version. Collectors can import a copy from Play-Asia here.

Here’s a rundown of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition from Square Enix:

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition was announced back in September 2018, but the game still has yet to release. Most recently, Square Enix announced a delay last December, pushing the title to this summer. We now have a new release date.

In Japan, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is slated for August 27. That should translate to August 25 or August 28 in the west.
