Root Letter: Last Answer adds even more to it, so fans of the original still have a legitimate reason to look into this new version. Just don’t bother with the live action visuals, unless you want to turn this charming light novel into a corny b-movie.
If you're new to visual novels, and curious, then go somewhere else first; Root Letter: Last Answer could put you off the genre for life. But if you're a visual novel fan, you've played all the other interesting ones on the Switch and you absolutely cannot wait for another – and if you've considered maybe just going outside or watching TV or lying on the floor and staring at the ceiling and you still can't wait for another – then you could take a look at Root Letter and just hope you find it so bad it's good.
Root Letter: Last Answer features an outstanding art style and a good set of additional epilogues for what is a good plot. At the same time, some of its endings seem out of place and the quality of the writing tends to fluctuate a lot. That doesn't mean that Root Letter: Last Answer for the Nintendo Switch is not an enjoyable game, as fans of visual novel-type adventures will find out, but the experience would be more immersive if there was any possible use of the touchscreen.
