The World Ends With You Final Remix is a port with problems, that much is certain, but I can't help but feel it's still a game well worth playing. I genuinely expected to be disappointed with how the game plays, and while there are some frustrations present that you shouldn't have to deal with, it's still such an enjoyable venture that I have to recommend it to JRPG fans. Oh, and the music is amazing.
I realize that I’m in a unique position, though. My nostalgia for the game isn’t connected to gameplay. Instead I’m wistful and rosy for the zen-like grind and the charming aesthetic. If you’re okay with playing this game in portable mode at all times, I can easily recommend Final Remix. If you’re put off by the motion controls, or if you were looking for more in the way of new content, then purchase this one with caution.
It’s as if the foundation has finally been laid for a new entry in a potential series, but if there were ever to be another The World Ends With You game, it would need to drastically improve on the control inputs. Despite these issues, however, this was some of the most fun I’ve had with my Switch thus far, and it’s an integral part of any Switch owner’s library – control problems aside. You’re invited to play the Reaper’s Game, and you’ll enjoy (most) every minute of it.
