Also available for : DS

<LINK REL="stylesheet" HREF="http://guidesmedia.ign.com/guides/uni/IGNE_style.css" TYPE="text/css">Square Enix may have been listening to your fervent pleas after all - as it looks like cult hit DS adventure The World Ends With You may <i>finally</i> be getting a sequel. Whoa. Now before you freak out and start crying and all that, keep in mind that the existence of this sequel hasn't been confirmed yet... but recent comments from series co-creator Tetsuya Nomura make a pretty convincing argument.<br/><br/> <object id="vid_4c2c1c52223ed8488c995386" class="ign-videoplayer" width="468" height="293" data="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/js/../swf/IGNPlayer.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/js/../swf/IGNPlayer.swf"/><param name="" value="true"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"/><param name="flashvars" value="url=http://www.ign.com/videos/2008/03/14/the-world-ends-with-you-nintendo-ds-video-dual-screen-combat"/><param name="wmode" value="opaque"/></object> <div style="width:480px"><a target="_blank" href="http://www.ign.com/videos/2008/03/14/the-world-ends-with-you-nintendo-ds-video-dual-screen-combat"><center>Check out the original The World Ends With You in action...</center></a></div><br/><br/>The news comes from a recent interview with Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream (as translated by <a target="_blank" href="http://andriasang.com/con0r9/subarashiki_sequel_hints/">Andriasang</a>). In it, Nomura not-so-subtly commented that Square Enix made the decision to add voice acting for previously-silent lead character Raimu/Rhyme's cameo in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance "out of consideration of the future of The World Ends With You series."<br/><br/>Not convinced? Just wait, there's more. When asked what his plans were for the franchise's future, Nomura said, "Regarding The World Ends With You, I can't say anything at present... (laughs). But there probably is something."<br/><br/>Keep it here on IGN for the latest on this exciting development.<br/><br/><DIV CLASS="IGNE_divider"></DIV><br/><br/><i>Audrey Drake is an Associate Editor of IGN.com and a proud member of the IGN Nintendo team.
