Sticking to their word, Square Enix is reviving the cult classic DS hit The World Ends With You for an updated HD version on the Nintendo Switch — set to include new story scenarios as well.

The announcement was made to kick off this morning’s surprise Nintendo Direct Mini presentation. In it, a short gameplay trailer was shown that showcases both a fresh HD makeover since its debut in 2008 — as well as some new Joy-con functionality mixed in with traditional touch controls akin to the original version. As stated, it was also confirmed that a new epilogue will be available in-game the will shed new light on the overall story.
At this time, no release window has been given other than “later this year”. However, seeing as how a gameplay trailer is already available and the title was previously completed on the Nintendo DS, the wait should not be too excruciatingly long.
