The Square Enix Members site has a pretty big update filled with The World Ends with You goodness. Parts 2 and 3 of the Creator’s Roundtable are both up, there’s an In-Store video of the title and the first chapter of the The World Ends with You manga by Shiro Amano. The best part of the update is the comic, because by clicking on certain colored comic panels, you can unlock ringtones of songs from the game.
The manga covers the first fifteen minutes of play of the game and is written by the same artist/author responsible for the Kingdom Hearts mangas already translated by Tokyopop. The comic is in black and white, but certain outfits or items may have color. If you click on the color images, then when you reach the end of the chapter you’ll receive download links for ringtones. The final page also state that the comics will be continued, and there’s a note on the page for The World Ends with You stating chapter 2 is coming soon.
Being a Square Enix Member is already paying off. Those ringtones would probably be 99 cents each normally – since the The World Ends with You soundtrack is going to be available on iTunes and iTunes offers ringtones now.
I’d like to see Tokyopop release the The World Ends with You manga. I’d totally buy it. After all, I went to the trouble to collect the Kingdom Hearts ones.
