About this game

This application will no longer be available on 64-bit devices as of Saturday, July 31, 2021.

Square Enix’s fresh-faced hit The New York Times called “one of the best role playing games ever designed for anything” has busted onto Android in a big way, with a slick and addictive new combat system, eye-popping HD art, and (of course) plenty of zetta awesome reasons for longtime fans to double dip.

Arm yourself with psychic superpowers and battle your way through a seven-day gauntlet of action: the Reaper’s Game.


THE SETUP
-------------------------------------------------
Welcome to Shibuya, a mishmash of attitudes and styles in the heart of Tokyo.

A boy named Neku wakes up in a crowded intersection, alone and unaware of how he got there. Then, he receives a weird text: “Clear this mission...or face erasure.” With that, Neku is thrust into a life-or-death game that sends him scrambling down streets paved with one riddle after another...

What is the Reaper’s Game? Why is Neku a Player, and what is he playing for? Will the Game really end if he survives all seven days? Another mystery is always around the corner.


THE PAYOFF
-------------------------------------------------
✔ Intuitive, addictive combat with a twist
Activate your combat abilities, or “psychs,” with simple touch commands like tapping, slashing, and dragging. Comfy with that? Control Neku and his Game partner on the same screen and take the combat up a notch. Like loot? Boost your item drops in battle with the revamped Fusion system.

✔ Deep replay value
Finish the main story to unlock a hilarious bonus chapter, more quests and items to find, new combat challenges, and secret reports that flesh out the story even more.

✔ Explore a living, breathing city
Neku’s sprawling world is based on the real-life Shibuya in Tokyo. Visit real locations and absorb some real Japanese culture through a hip, fantasy lens.

✔ Exciting arcade action
Use the pins you equip in the main story to play Tin Pin Slammer! Take on various in-game NPCs and be the first to knock your opponents’ pins off the table!

✔ Completely redrawn art
Enjoy the game in full HD on your device with art and animation that has been redrawn just for high pixel density

✔ The ultimate soundtrack: 60 songs
Composer Takeharu Ishimoto’s complete, sonically sublime soundtrack is included right in the game with high-quality audio and full vocals.

✔ Wirelessly trade Friend Cards
Exchange profiles with other players, and their avatars will appear in the streets of Shibuya! Not only that, you receive free items for every trade!

Better than the DS version. Captivating story. Gameplay is interesting, but changes so frequently it's hard to master. Fortunately not very hard to execute on this version. Art and Music are both exceptional. For some reason I can only bring myself to play a few minutes at a time now. I've cleared the main game, but the end game is grindy and requires waiting through cut scenes over and over and over again, fast forward is available, but not skip. So it's a bit exhausting, but still a 5!

If you balked at getting the DS version because of the dual screen combat system, this version should make you feel right at home. Combat is done on single screen and you can perform moves with one finger! It's challenging and fun, but not overwhelming. Besides combat, the characters are sympathetic and relatable & the storyline is a poignant romp about opening up to others and getting second chances. Soundtrack is a phenomenal mix of genres. Give this game a chance if you need a fresh JRPG.

Playing on Note 20 Ultra. Have experienced zero graphical glitches, crashes, or any other issues (i though pause menu wasn't available, its unlocked through the story...) I love the soundtrack to this! We need the option to buy it! One thing I would like an update for, is if I force display full screen through my phone, instead of filling in the area where the notification bar is, it is a grey bar. This is an amazing game, its well worth the price. I'd play this over DS Twewy
