It's a Wonderful World, Now With a Wonderful Discount

Square Enix's Subarashiki Kono Sekai: It's a Wonderful World, also known as The World Ends With You in its soon to be released English format, is now available at a heavily discounted price of USD 39.90 (previously USD 58.90), with free international shipping to some countries.

Here's a description of the game, taken from Play-Asia:

Neku Sakuraba, a normal 15 year-old boy with a hobby for music and graffiti, suddenly had woken up in middle of Shibuya one day, a famous shopping district in Tokyo, Japan. Why he's there remains a mystery to him. All of a sudden, the thoughts of the people surrounding him began to enter his head at once. It must had been happening because of the mysterious badge he held in his hand. Suddenly, Neku's cellphone rings with a text message on it. It says that if he wants to live, he'll have to fulfill a set of orders entitled "Death's Game" which must be completed under a 7 days limit.

Most of the gameplay focuses on finding clues and battling Noise. Players can use Neku's empathetic abilities to hear people's thoughts by using the touch screen of the Nintendo DS whenever they wish. The game's combat system, titled Stride Cross Battle System, uses both screens of the Nintendo DS; where one of four protagonists is displayed on the top screen and Neku is displayed on the bottom, with battle actions taking place simultaneously between both characters. Players use the touch screen to move and attack with Neku, whose revealed abilities include lightning, fire, telekinesis (moving objects), and healing magic.

Subarashiki Kono Sekai: It's a Wonderful World is developed by the Kingdom Hearts.
