Bad news for Square Enix fans who want to enjoy The World Ends With You: Solo Remix on their iOS devices using iOS 8. The game currently suffers from a bug that makes the game unplayable and it looks like a fix won’t be coming, according to a support email.
Apparently the publisher is well aware of the bug but nothing will be done to fix it, as the game will not receive an update to make it compatible with iOS 8. If you have purchased the game recently, you have the option of asking for a refund but this definitely doesn’t make the situation less bad.
Thank you for contacting SQUARE ENIX support, Unfortunately we have been notified that this title will not be receving an update to be compatable with iOS 8 and forward. For this we and the development team deeply apologize. We can only suggest that you play the game on an iOS 7 or earlier device at this time. If have purchased the game recently and would like a refund or reimbursement you will need to contact Apple Support as they would act as the retailer in this case. Since we are not the retailer and simply the publisher we would be unable to provide a refund under any circumstances. We apologize for the inconveneince. Thank you for contacting the SQUARE ENIX Support Center.
