That RPG on the Nintendo DS from 2007 “The World Ends with You”, is making its way to your Anime Watchlist in 2021! Square Enix announced this through The World Ends with You’s website, which has the tagline of “You have seven days. Will you survive? ON AIR in 2021”.
On its initial release in 2007, it caught wind of lots of award nominations. Not too surprising being that is was developed by the creators of Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy!
