Sadly, though still attaining most of the original enjoyment of its touch-screen combat and varying opportunities for customization, The World Ends With You: Final Remix falls short of being hailed a genuine, complete experience — instead lying a little too close to its previous mobile rendition rather than something altogether more well-rounded, and more importantly, improved upon for Nintendo’s hybrid machine.
In the end, The World Ends With You: Final Remix isn’t quite the remix I was hoping it’d be. It’s hard to deny that The World Ends With You is still one of my favorite JRPGs. If this is the only way you have to experience it then you’re likely to have a good time. However, if the option is available, the DS version really is the best one available. No matter the choice, you’re still in for one fantastic JRPG.
If this is the only way you can play the game, it’s more than adequate, but it loses much of what made the DS game special in its transition to the Switch. The developer should do better by their classic games, and we should expect them to. Right now, this version is just good and it could have been much more than that. Because The World Ends With You wasn’t just good; it was great, and Neku and Shibuya deserve better.
