Play to your strengths in high-energy turn-based battles against rogue Mirages; then fuse items to craft powerful weapons and crush your foes. Around every corner you’ll find fan-service, including Fire Emblem references, original songs by Japanese entertainment giant Avex, dungeons themed after the entertainment industry, and eye-catching music performances.

In a lot of ways, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is a lot like the industry it’s poking fun at: it’s colorful, loud, shallow, and entertaining. Even when it threatened to bore or frustrate me into quitting with pointless loading screens and weak puzzle solving, it always drew me back in with its dazzling combat and catchy music. The story and characters may not have a lot of depth or sophistication, but it has style and charm, and I’m a big fan of that.
