Pretty good trailer. The OP song sounds good, but one would have hoped it would have been Twister, the OP song of the game. Maybe the ED song. One thing I noticed in the trailer is that Subarashiki Kono Sekai is translated into It's a Wonderful World. Rarely do they do actually translate, which is cool since the whole It's a Wonderful World title issue is only in the West, hence the overseas name change.

What was the issue with "It's a wonderful world"?

Because it's a translation of the original Japanese game title, unlike the localized name (The World Ends With You), for which the game is known in the West. You guess.

It is copyrighted in America/West, hence the name change overseas.

Presumably it has to do with the movie of the same name that came out in 1939.
Assuming my understanding is correct, the copyright on that title won't expire until 2034.

The CG blends REALLY well, what a good stylistic choice. This is very suited for an anime, so I'll watch anyways even though I have no way of playing the game.
