The Nintendo DS masterpiece is squeezed onto a single screen, with the improvements just about outweighing the compromises.

Still a courageously original action role-player that breaks almost every rule in the role-playing book. Although what it really needs is a sequel, not another remaster.

The World Ends With You is still an engrossing and unique game, but this port does more to make it worse than better

Through those Joy-Con controls, the Switch version also offers a surprisingly refreshing and altogether more interesting mode of playing through the game: co-op. Instead of your partner being relegated to pin duty, a second player with a second Joy-Con can command them, using a small assortment of base pins to do different moves. This way of playing is not only intuitive and easy to pick up, but it adds a new layer to the game. Now, you have to coordinate your pin assaults with your roommate, significant other, or random stranger on the plane sitting next to you. Instead of splitting your brain in twain, you're now coordinating with someone else, only getting a good cross combo if you can figure out how to make your pin attacks work in unison. It's a fun way to replay The World Ends With You, and even feels a bit more thematic to the game's message.

There's plenty of you with 3DSes collecting dust somewhere in a drawer, like mine is. If that's you, go figure out where to grab a copy of the DS version of this game. It really is worth it, and if you're at the same place where I was when I first played this game, it might just change your life.

My opinion of The World Ends With You: Final Remix is one of indifference. All the consideration that went into making the original a compound piece of craftsmanship, inseparable from the device on which you played it, is absent.

Despite the subtitle Final Remix, it's hard to call this version of the game definitive.

One of the most unique and refreshing JRPG of all time. The controls are far from perfect (in both modes), but this is the best chance to experience this fantastic story... Or rediscover it once again.

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.
