I like to think of Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE Encore in the same way as Persona 4 Golden. It's the same game with a few added bells and whistles and it's playable on the go, which makes it even better.
The game has some of the best music and a strong storyline to keep you entertained for a nice 50 hours average! If you did not get this game on the Wii U, this is your chance to pick it up for the Switch!
Atlus and Intelligent Systems' bizarre collaboration proves that, once again, there's still space for experimental RPGs in 2020
A quirky and irresistible crossover, Tokyo Mirage Sessions is nonetheless an anachronistic game that doesn't explore its themes as much as it could --even though its battle system is solid enough to be attractive on its own.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore has some amazing RPG systems with a lackluster story. It’s nearly impossible to care about these characters and their relationship within the first ten hours of the game, and that’s more than enough time for players to just give up from disinterest.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is a great RPG that deserved a second chance on a more popular console. The changes might not be numerous but what is there elevates the game beyond the original and for those with a tolerance of the idol industry, you’ll find a fantastic RPG that fills that Persona void on the Switch.
I’m so glad that this game has been given a new lease of life on Switch. It’s not always perfect and it may not be what you expect, but it’s still another great RPG that definitely feels more at home in a portable world than on the big screen. If allowed, this one can be a real crowd-pleaser.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions # FE Encore is an excellent combination of Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei/Persona. Features from renown RPG series are brought together for an interesting and worthwhile experience. The Switch version improves and refines upon the foundation of the Wii U version, making it a must buy for JRPG fans.
With more story, extra unlockables, and the battle improvements and additions; Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE Encore stands as an across-the-board improvement for an already worthwhile JRPG.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is a great remaster for one of the greatest JRPG available on Wii U and a great way to experience it (In case you didn't have the chance of playing before), but the story still doesn't make much sense some times and some of the mechanics have been refined by ATLUS in other games of the genre.

Persona 5 is considered one of the best games ever for me. The style, the characters, the gameplay, the story, the variety, all this has made it a great title for me, which not only JRPGs will have to measure up to in the future. So I was all the more curious to see how Tokyo Mirage would do in comparison. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore does not quite reach the quality of Persona 5. However, it is a wonderful game for all those who like the crazy Japanese setting. The thrilling story, the varied, sometimes amusing, sometimes serious side missions, the partly quirky companions, the easily understandable and yet tactically mature combat system, the individual graphic style, which reminds of Persona and yet goes its own way and the modern soundtrack, which should not only please friends of J-Pop or K-Pop, make Tokyo Mirage one of the best roleplaying games on the Switch.

While the game won’t appeal to those seeking the tactical gameplay of a classic Fire Emblem, anyone who didn’t jump onto the idol train last generation could do far worse than picking up this Encore, especially with a dearth of other games in a similar vein on the Nintendo Switch.
It only slightly improves upon the original, so it might not be worth double dipping, but for newcomers, it’s a real treat. Honestly, it was worth picking up for myself, because the original couldn’t play on the Wii U Gamepad. Now fans can have Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE on the go, and they’ll have dozens of hours to kill with this title.
Everything in Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is tied up in a neat little bundle of a JRPG. It neither overstays its welcome or is too short. It can cater to casual players without an enormous time sink needed for grinding, but also shine for players that want a harder difficulty.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE Encore takes you to meet the world of entertainment and idols of Japan, with battles full of powerfull songs and light shows, as you save the world from the dangerous Mirage. If you have 50 hours of your time to invest in a JRPG and you love the world of JPOP, then, there's no mistaking!

In conclusion, if you enjoy Japanese pop culture, bright colours and generally being made to feel quite light and fluffy whilst fighting off bad guys, give this a go. And if you aren’t into any of those things, give it a go too! You might come to love them, if only for a little bit at a time, just like me.
For fans who are looking for an amazing RPG experience, and for Shin Megami Fans who have yet to dive into the world of Fire Emblem, this is an amazing entry point to familiarise yourself with it’s lore. While it’s completely different from what is expected from a standard Fire Emblem, it is what we’ve come to expect from ATLUS and their incredible creativity. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is an essential for any JRPG lovers, and Nintendo Switch owners.
A sequel would do wonders for Tokyo Mirage Sessions. It would be fun if ATLUS took it in a similar route to that of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. Without diving into any spoilers, we could see Fortuna Entertainment years down the road with a new cast of playable characters as the Mirages are breaking into our world once again, and throughout the story, we could run into many of the previous playable characters from this game and have them join our party as cameo members for an Idolasphere dungeon or something. Sound too good to be true? It probably is, and my biggest fear is this is a one and done series. But I hope not. There’s so much to love here, and even though it’s a few years old and doesn’t look nearly as modern as some of the other games coming out in 2020, it’s still one of the best JRPG experiences you can find on the Nintendo Switch.
