Nearly two years after launching on iOS, the mobile version of The World Ends With You is available now for Android devices - and that's lovely. Meanwhile, a Joystiq editor ponders an alternative reality in which Square Enix releases the had-to-be-titled sequel The World Ends With Wii U. Sigh.

If you missed TWEWY the first time around, let's recap: The original DS RPG hit Japan back in 2007 before heading West a year later. It's set in Tokyo's Shibuya district, where malls, cafes and clubs are infused with a distinct youth culture that's similarly all over the game.

TWEWY stars the anti-social and neckless Neku, who finds himself stuck in a bizarre, metaphysical game of purgatory. Besides the unusual setting and story, the dual-screen, high-octane combat is its own unique beast, while the soundtrack has great J-pop to boot.

The $18/£13 "Solo Remix" retools the DS original's dual-screen combat for single screens, with partner attacks summoned on the same screen. It also features redrawn HD art, while the soundtrack is bolstered by new songs and remixes.
