For those unfamiliar, The World Ends with You was first released on Nintendo DS back in 2007. The game, which boasts a funky (and very 2000s) aesthetic, fashion-focused character customization, and rhythm-based battles, became something of a cult classic. The World Ends with You: Final Remix updates the game with HD graphics, an added scenario, and new pins, music, and Joy-Con motion controls. You can find more details on some of the game’s new features, right here.

Here’s the official Final Remix rundown, courtesy of Nintendo:

Complete the mission...or face erasure. That’s all Neku knows after regaining consciousness in the middle of a busy intersection without his memories. Now he and his partner must fight to survive a life-or-death game in this twisted tale with more turns than the urban labyrinth of Tokyo they’re trapped in. This definitive version of Square Enix’s RPG classic brings the dark story to life on the Nintendo Switch along with a new scenario and some new remixed music.

Vibrant themes highlighting Japanese youth culture, food, and fashion are seamlessly integrated into the gameplay and unique storyline. Players can join rhythmic battles using either Joy-Con controllers or the Nintendo Switch touch screen. In two-player co-op mode, players can battle Noise and challenge the Reapers’ Game together.

The World Ends with You: Final Remix hits Nintendo Switch on October 12.
