The World Ends With You returns to iOS after months-long absence

Four months after pulling the game from the iTunes App Store, publisher Square Enix has restored the iOS port of The World Ends With You, making the game compatible with iOS 8.

The World Ends With You: Solo Remix, the mobile port of the original Nintendo DS game, was removed from the App Store in February. The game was incompatible with the latest version of iOS and had been unplayable for months.

"We have confirmed a bug that prevents this game from running properly on iOS 8, and are currently investigating the matter," Square Enix said at the time. The game was then removed from sale with no clear timeline for a return to the App Store.

Version 1.2.1 of the game was released today with iOS 8 compatibility. The World Ends With You: Solo Remix costs $17.99.

The iOS port of The World Ends With You was first released in 2012. An Android version is also available through the Google Play Store.
