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.
The World Ends With You is a still a solid RPG with interesting mechanics and an engaging story, living up to its reputation. Even playing all these years later, it still feels very fresh with its own unique identity. While the Switch version is still fun, it’s far from a great port, and the extra content is pretty disappointing. Then again, if this is your only way to play or revisit a fantastic game, you should definitely take that opportunity.
Final Remix eventually became a physically exhausting chore to play—just try to find a comfortable position for long, extended sessions. The graphics and sound made the hassle all worth it, but by not taking full advantage of the Switch, the beauty of Final Remix runs the risk of only being viewed through YouTube walkthroughs.
