Last week, we profiled the angsty teen heroes fighting to save their lives from erasure in Square’s new action RPG, The World Ends With You. Already covered extensively in our hands-on preview, you’ll battle powerful monsters, known as the Noise, by brawling and conjuring psychic powers. Today, we’re profiling the Reapers - the badass puppet masters of World Ends’ deadly Game. Immediately recognizable is how much better dressed the Reapers are than the heroes. You know what that means? Older people are totally evil.
Look at Mr. Cool here, sporting a suit made from a velour throw blanket, yo-yo earrings and alligator boots. As one of the highest ranked Reapers, Kitaniji’s perfectionist attitude makes him not only a prick around his fellow villains, but also one of the best. Fun fact: he wears sunglasses indoors because he oozes that much style.
Sporting ripped cargo pants, a crimson bandana under his wicked trucker hat, and trench coat as black as his heart, Minamimoto rose within the Reaper ranks incredibly fast considering he’s only 18. Not only is he viciously intelligent, but Minamimoto’s one cruel son of a bitch. Also, he doesn’t tip waitresses. Quite a dick.
