Square Enix has released an iPhone and iPad remake of cult DS game The World Ends with You. The so-called "Solo Remix" - which comes complete with a few new features and Square's trademarked inflated price tag. The World Ends with You: Solo Remix is now available on Pandaapp, go ahead and get it.

The game follows Neku, a spiky-haired teen who wakes up in Tokyo's Shibuya district with the power to read minds. He also receives a text message that tells him that he's been 'invited' to participate in a seven-day gauntlet against some otherworldly foes.

You'll need to beat up monsters, make some new pals, collect magical badges, and wander the streets of Shibuya to survive this week-long battle. Oh, and figure out who is behind this twisted game.

This iOS version sports a new combat system. On DS, two characters fought across two screens, with both buttons and touchscreen commands being used by the player. On Apple's gadgets, however, it's all done through taps and swipes, and multiple characters fight on the same screen.

There's some multiplayer functionality thrown in, too. You can wirelessly exchange profiles with other players and they'll show up in your game, or you can play Tin Pin Slammer using the badges you find in the Story mode.

However, the World Ends with You has some steep technical requirements, and only the most recent devices are compatible with the game. On iPad, you'll need either an iPad 2 or the new iPad. On iPhone, you must have an iPhone 4 or a 4S. Sorry for iPod Touch users.

Square Enix’s fresh-faced hit The New York Times called “one of the best role playing games ever designed for anything” has busted onto iOS in a big way, with a slick and addictive new combat system, eye-popping HD art, and (of course) plenty of zetta awesome reasons for longtime fans to double dip.
