Final Remix is a fun game which has great depth in the fights and primarily how you fight in different areas. The option for the use of the touch-screen or a single Joy-Con. Add amazing audio-visual elements and the Final Remix is the perfect Final edition of the game.

The World Ends With You is my favourite game of all time. The story is engaging and heartwarming, the characters are diverse and well-designed, and the gameplay is remarkably unique. Overall, TWEWY is a niche title that I think most fans of games like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts will enjoy.

The World Ends With You Final Remix is fantastic. A unique ARPG packed with a brilliant story, fun gameplay, and a fascinating premise, everything about it screams instant classic. Don't sit out on this one, especially if you can get around the initially jarring control options.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix isn't just a long title. It is one of the best DS games reborn on a modern console. The music, the visuals, and the gameplay are all incredible, and having this cult classic come back to life is a blessing. This is an incredibly stylish RPG that demands your attention.

There's reason for existing fans to play the game again, because it has an all-new chapter to work through, and there's certainly a reason for people who haven't previously played it to give it a go, because to this day, nothing else has quite managed to offer what The World Ends With You offers.

Control issues aside, this is still an amazing and creative game in its presentation, world and story, and with the epilogue and enhanced graphics and music it is recommended even for those who played the original release.

The World Ends with You -Final Remix- is a game full of charm and attention to detail. In the face of a combat system never 100% accurate remains a solid and exciting experience. Definitely recommended for those who have never had the opportunity to try the original, the title has something to say even to those who want to dive back into the world of Neku.

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.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix is a great port, so long as you keep it in handheld mode. Combining RPG storytelling with frantic cell phone game tapping, this funky, high-fashion game is still a surprisingly unique experience, but the Joy-con controls are simply not up to par. With a killer sound track, a surprisingly complex plot, and a whole lot to do after the credits roll, this DS title has more than stood the test of time.
