The World Ends With You: Solo Remix will not receive iOS 8 compatability update [Update]

Update: Square Enix has responded to Touch Arcade and notes that there is a fix in the works, though it is proving more complex than originally anticipated.

Original story: Square Enix hasn’t had the most sterling reputation when it comes to mobile platforms. Their ports are sometimes considered to be overpriced, while original titles like Final Fantasy: All the Bravest demonstrated microtransactions at their absolute worst. At the very least, though, the games would at least function. That, sadly, does not appear to be the case with The World Ends With You: Solo Remix.

Square Enix has acknowledged a compatibility problem with the iOS version of The World Ends With You and the newer iOS 8. Touch Arcade notes that the game will not function at all with the newer iOS update. One of their readers reached out to Square’s customer support and received a reply that reads, “Unfortunately we have been notified that this title will not be receving an update to be compatable with iOS 8 and forward. For this we and the development team deeply apologize. We can only suggest that you play the game on an iOS 7 or earlier device at this time.” This statement contradicts an earlier Reddit post that indicated Square’s team was addressing the issue.

This response will be a hard one to swallow for anyone that has purchased or is looking to purchase the 2007 Nintendo DS classic on their iOS device. The iPhone version of the game runs at a whopping $17.99, while the iPad version runs for $19.99. Anyone that stumbles onto the game while running iOS 8 will essentially be picking up a broken game. Shacknews has reached out to Square Enix for comment on this story and will issue any updates as they come.
