Nintendo of America made the official release date announcement on its Twitter account this morning. It also reminded us Final Remix features some new remixed music and a brand-new scenario.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix is a remastered version of The World Ends With You for the Nintendo DS, which celebrated its 10th birthday in 2007 (mobile ports followed in the ensuing years). The game's story follows a cynical teenager named Neku whose soul becomes ensnared in a high-stakes game that might see him fading into utter non-existence if he loses.
The World Ends With You leans heavily into fashions and trends that were popular around the time of its initial release, but interestingly, the game doesn't feel dated in any way. We can't wait to delve into it again this fall. You should delve into the discussion Kat, Caty, and I had about The World Ends With You on the game's 10th birthday.
