New Best Game !! Only for DS!!!

New Good Game for DS gamesive!! The worlds End With You!! It's created by Square Enix!!

This is a little preview before you play it!!

Before Neku can get his bearings, he finds himself partnered up with a girl named Shiki and battling his way through a mysterious game run by "Reapers." The story is somewhat typical RPG fare but thankfully, the game's battle system helps set it apart.

Dubbed the "Stride Cross Battle System", it employs both halves of the DS screen during battle. You control Neku on the bottom screen while simultaneously controlling a partner character on the top screen. While you're swiping and tapping away at the bottom screen, you must input arrow commands with the D-pad for the top screen. It's a pretty daunting task at first but if you can wrap your head around it, the system adds tremendous depth to the gameplay even if the system isn't perfect-the touch screen can be a bit flaky and in the midst of your stylus-mashing, you will sometimes fire off the wrong attack.

There's also plenty of depth inherent in the rest of the game. In true Square Enix fashion, there are a myriad of things to collect, purchase and level up, from pins to clothing and food items. There's a quirky trend system that dictates your battle stats according to fashion. Clothes and pins are branded with logos and if you're caught wearing the wrong one, your battle stats will take a hit. World's End is also fast, not only in combat but in plot development and game flow.

The briskly moving plot and the unique battle system adds up to yet another winner for Square-Enix. Tetsuya Nomura's trademark character designs work well with the game's urban concept and the quick pace keeps you engaged while the J-Pop music provides a nice backdrop. Though the many of the nods to real-life specifics of Shibuya will be lost on American gamers, the creativity, depth and unusual battle system will shine through no matter what.

Wanna try it!! it's your luck if you have gameboy DS to play "The Worlds End with You"!!
