The lights are on
A sub-domain has appeared on Square Enix's website labeled Subaseka, which is similar to the Japanese title for The World Ends With You, which is Subarashiki Kono Sekai.
Characters from The World Ends With you appeared in the recent Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, and back in April Tetsuya Nomura offered hints about a new entry in the series. He said, "regarding The World Ends With You, I can't say anything at present, but there probably is something."
The Square Enix site has a countdown that is ending shortly. Maybe we will find out more soon.

Woot... A new release that MIGHT be real!
It cleary is TWEWY. The Japanese title is 'Subarashiki Kono Sekai' and the link's has 'SubaSeka' is the URL.
I would guess this to be another 3DS game from Squeenix. Good for them.
After Sleeping Dogs and Dues Ex HR, Square Enix = My favorite PC porter.
I'd be ultra incredibly excited if a sequel is happening. The World Ends With You is my absolute favorite DS game.
If this happens, and I just got a 3DS XL and can finally play Kingdom Hearts: DDD this may possibly go down as the best week of my life!
Common Sense: Developers have done this in the past, putting Pit in Brawl similar to how Square put these characters in KH3. This is hardly a rumor. It would be closer to say: The logical next step.
That is an awesome rumor. I loved The World That Ends With You a lot; it was my most played DS game. A sequel for it would be great!
