    Effortlessly, it’s the best game that has been released on the Wii U, and, given the games to come, discounting Zelda as an NX launch title, it will be the best game that will ever be released on the Wii U.

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE takes a lot from the Shin Megami Tensei series and mixes in some Fire Emblem-flavored icing, and the results were fantastic. It's a superb RPG with a lot to offer, and is a must-have game for Wii U owners.

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions is not only the best JRPG to come out for the Wii U, it’s likely the best JRPG we have seen in this generation, period. Atlus is going to have their work cut out for them if they are going to one-up themselves with Persona 5.

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE has a little bit of Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei for flavor, but honestly the title stands out as its own thing. Fans of Shin Megami Tensei spinoff Persona will find a lot to love: great characters, a heavy dose of Japanese entertainment, and a solid battle system. And if you're a Wii U owner, this is a great RPG to close out the system's lifespan.

    This game is a song for J-RPG fans and Japanese culture enthusiasts in general. It's long, it has a strong battle system and an interesting and brave narrative. Pure Shin Megami Tensei with a taste of Fire Emblem.

    A great RPG. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is able to bring us back the best of this genre, even when it includes awesome combat innovations. One of the last / best Wii U games.

    If anything, this game is a promising gateway to many future projects, but to consider this a successful blend between the franchises wouldn’t be true.

It is the usual Megaten battle system only heavily revamped to make it the best in the series (for now, persona 5 is creeping up). I have never had so much fun battling enemies in a jrpg since xenoblade and tales of vesperia. The dungeons are also very cool and overall do their jobs as representing some form of an art such as photography and fashion. Not to big on the Jpop idol theme and the story is not amazing, but the gameplay is just so amazing.

    Note: there is also some censorship in areas like cgi cutscenes and dungeons, but it does not affect gameplay at all. Censorship makes the story bit wonky in photography dungeon but that is it.

The game isn't for everyone due to its niche genre and focus on the Japanese entertainment industry, but if you like or can put up with that, it's great, and outside of being a moronic censorship freak or a Wii U hater, there's really no other reason to dislike this game.

    Gorgeous art style, excellent gameplay... we're going through something of a JRPG renaissance, and it's fantastic. I would say we JRPG fansGorgeous art style, excellent gameplay... we're going through something of a JRPG renaissance, and it's fantastic. I would say we JRPG fans are "getting spoiled", but then I remember how good bro-dude gamers have it with endless waves of FPS and sports games. Now THAT'S getting spoiled.

    Now the hot topic: censorship. Is it annoying? Sure. Is it a big deal? Not particularly, but if we buy censored games, we're sending the message that it's okay... which certainly isn't great. But not buying a game purely because of this issue doesn't necessarily mean that the game's publisher will get the message that it's because of censorship. And personally, I think buying games like TMS#FE to send the message that we want more good JRPGs to be produced and/or localized is far more important and more likely to get across to the publisher than not buying them because of minor qualms with how they're being localized. Besides, the fact that battle dialog isn't even subtitled is a bigger issue than the fact that some sauciness was toned down.
