    It's a brilliant concept, well told, and backed by Atlus' skill with turn-based combat at its peak.

    The aesthetic, charm and gameplay Tokyo Mirage Sessions brings make it worthy to stand on its own and I hope that those who end up playing the game see it this way as well. Nintendo seemed to think that Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE was worthy of an encore here on Switch, and I find it to be a worthy encore, indeed.

    In the end, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is a simple reminder of how diverse and great was the WiiU's library of games. This is a great JRPG that Switch fans who were left out of the Persona 5 party should own.

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is one of the most colourful, approachable and downright endearing RPGs you’ll find on the Switch. Its new story chapter, music tracks and character assists improve on the original to an extent, but not enough to greatly affect its overall quality. Thankfully, what was there was already fantastic, meaning those who missed out on it the first time around really have no reason not to get stuck in now.

    For good or ill, Tokyo Mirage Session #FE: Encore's biggest strength and biggest weakness is that it's pretty much the same game you may have played on the Wii U. It runs better, it looks better, and it has some nice quality-of-life improvements, but it's basically the same game. Is that worth $60? It depends on how much you enjoyed the game in the first place, or if you missed it due to it being a Wii U title. Anyone who is a fan of Persona-style games will almost certainly enjoy it. JRPG fans hoping for something to tide them over until Persona 5 Royale should find a comfortable home in the weird world of Tokyo Mirage Sessions.

    Even if with a porting that adds little in terms of new content, Tokyo Mirage Sessions arrives on Switch as the same, great JRPG it was on Wii U. Just don't expect to be surprised again if you've already played it four years ago.

    Gone pretty unnoticed during its first release on the Wii U back in 2015, the title developped jointly by Atlus and Intelligent Systems was and still is a niche game, mainly aimed at both JRPG and J-pop enthusiasts. This second iteration only provides some new minor features such as costumes and an original dungeon, where the characters dreams can be fulfilled... Quite a program, but still technically flawed, specially on TV mode.

Forget about censorship and just play the game, if you're a fan of persona series or SMT you will enjoy this game. Didn't play on wii U back in the days. But this switch version i believe is the best. Faster loading screen and beautiful in handheld. Expand

This is one of the most fun rpg games i had ever play, the combat system is great and the characters very charismatics. I didn't care much about the story, only when they were doing Fire Emblem references, that were so damn cool for me. A very recommendable game Expand

    Great and interesting game play but the story is the best and sometimes there are terrible loading but the gameplay shines through so this gets a 8/10

    Está bien a secas. Los elementos de fire emblem son mínimos y se toman tantas libertades creativas que ni sé notan.
    El combate es divertido
    Está bien a secas. Los elementos de fire emblem son mínimos y se toman tantas libertades creativas que ni sé notan.
    El combate es divertido pero se transforma en sumamente tedioso y repetitivo para las últimas horas del juego.
    El inicio es lento pero a la mitad el juego se pone bastante interesante. Los más entretenido es la interacción con los personajes pero incluso esto es muy limitado.
    Solo lo recomiendo a los fans hardocre de Shin megami tensei por lo demás mantente alejado de este juego si no eres fan de los JRPG y de la cultura japonesa.

    This game was vandalized with censorship and anyone who says otherwise doesn't know what he's talking about. I played the original version inThis game was vandalized with censorship and anyone who says otherwise doesn't know what he's talking about. I played the original version in Japanese on Wii U and this version makes the stupid decision to ruin a lof of the outfits (In a game where modeling and fashion matters) because someone in America may be offended at some cleavage or panty shot because everyone over here is 12 apparently.

    Allow me to explain, one of the main character is a GRAVURE model, basically she models underwear and bathing suits. There's also a part of the story that revolves around this. She's also a Pop Idol and does various songs in different cute outfits. Well apparently being cute is considered disgusting in the west and so even the japanese version has to suffer these clown outfits instead.

    To Summarize, this is a NICHE game with a hardcore fanbase and they basically managed to piss off the Persona fans, piss off the puritans (because they don't like cute anime girls anyways) and piss off fire emblem fans.

    Good Job! NOBODY is happy because of the stupid localization and tons of people cancelled their game in Japan getting the Wii U version instead. All you had to do was include both versions like in the Wii U but you went above and beyond the call of duty to prove how stupid you are and for that you deserve a big fat 0.
