Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore
Top Critic Average
Unable to combine the best of two beloved series, this JRPG can't really find its focus.
It doesn't have the depth of standalone Persona and Fire Emblem games, but this is a fun crossover that will please followers of both, and Japanese role-playing fans in general.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions is a ridiculous gem that’s finally getting a second chance
Whatever you think of port-begging, it's justified with Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore. Not only does #FE Encore give us a chance to play a great game that was overlooked on the Wii U, but it also adds a new dungeon, new songs, and content that was previously DLC. A lot of new Persona fans have been minted since #FE's initial release in 2015, and this is one song they should all enjoy.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore feels particularly timely. The world hasn't been the brightest, most hopeful place in recent years, but leading a team of cheerful, committed teen pop idols against demonic entities makes it feel that much brighter. This is a game that's dedicated to hope for the future, and that creativity is an integral component of that. I'm willing to believe them too.
A second chance to discover one of the most fresh JRPGs of recent memory. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is pretty much a Persona game with a bit of Fire Emblem here and there, so if you love the genre, you shouldn't miss it... Even if you despise J-POP.

While Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore may not have quite as much Fire Emblem influence as some fans may want, the two series go very well together with a unique premise and Mirage system that is overlaid upon a pretty traditional turn-based system at its core that will satisfy both fan bases.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is a fantastic JRPG that could have been better technically and when it comes to localisation.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is the best version of a great game. It's got great characters with a lot of depth (except for Itsuki), varied visual themes, wonderful music, and an addictive battle system. Its debut didn't get the attention it deserved, but maybe this encore will shine a spotlight on one of the best RPGs in recent memory.
