The World Ends with You countdown site to hold more than one announcement

Originally posted on UndergrounDuelists:

That was fast! Just a few hours ago as of this writing, we told you that a leak had supposedly announced an iOS port of The World Ends with You, previously exclusive to the Nintendo DS. Though the gameplay mechanics are going to be quite hard to conceptualize (the original game utilized both screens for multitasking gameplay), it seems as if there could be more than one announcement imminent in the countdown!

The news comes from a translator who has worked on The World Ends with You, Kingdom Hearts, and even Monster Hunter, who tweeted:

You want us to pay for this again???

You would think that UFC 150 would be a celebration, maybe a notch or two below that of UFC 100. Well, that is simply not the case. The event does feature a Championship match in the Lightweight division. Sweet! The 155-pound class is widely regarded as the best in the organization. That has to be a plus right? Wrong. The title fight is a rematch between Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar. Who fought for the same 155 lb. title at UFC 144. Frankie Edgar lost the close bout and then proceeded to cash in his good will with the organization to get another shot at the belt. Wahoo.
