This is my character designs for the game "The World Ends With You" and here I've made 5 designs. Each characters are based on Malaysian youths in their suburban culture identity which can be seen in the capital of Malaysia-Kuala Lumpur.
A young boy whose family runs a coffee shop(restaurant) in Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur and he often roams around there and uptown Bintang walk. He likes to collect action figures, plastic models and play video games. Energetic, hotblooded and sometimes prone to accidents. He can summons an Apache Helicopter and a Wanzer(mecha) while engaging reapers in the Reaper's Game.
A young girl who lives with her mother running a boutique in Bintang walk avenue. Cheerful and sometimes headstrong, she is very fashion savvy and always goes on the latest trend in the market. She can summons a large stuffed kitty cat doll and an army of kitty dolls to attack reapers.
A rich, Gothic girl who lives in condos near the KLCC Twin towers. Cold and somewhat lethargic, she likes to collect Super Dollfies and make Gothic clothes. She can summons her Gothic doll and a swarm of wooden stakes to attack reapers.
A graffiti artist who always hang around near river banks and backstreets to spray-paint graffiti. Artistic and level-headed, he is everyone's big brother and always put his friends to be more important than he is. He can creates monsters and weapons from his graffiti arts and use it to attack reapers.
A dog who always goes buy coffee at KuuBeng's coffee shop for its owner. She can barks shockwaves to attack reapers and she also bites reapers. (This dog is based on a true story in Petaling street where the owner trained the dog to go buy coffee every evenings)
In Kuala Lumpur, there are several spots where suburban cultures are popular among teenagers and young adults, in addition with some local multicultural identities like coffee shops, MAMAK (Indian Muslim) restaurants, hawker centers and temples, Kuala Lumpur is truly a multi-cultural gem which also attracts foreign tourists.
