Title: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore 幻影異聞録♯FE
Platform: PSP
Genre: Otome
Language: Japanese
Company: Atlus
Summary:
Story:
Characters: I didn’t expect to like about half the cast, but by the end of the game, I was pretty gucci with all of them. The character side stories definitely help, as you get a good amount of one-on-one interaction with all of them. I didn’t mind that they were very orchestrated (in the fact that they literally wait forever for you to start their side story and then remind you once in a while if you’re leaving them alone), and honestly feel more games should have this kind of format with their character side stories rather than trying to blend them into the main storyline in some forced fashion.
Graphics:
Sound: 9.5. Lots of great catchy stuff… the regular battle theme is forever great, but I do still wish they had more than one regular battle theme. For a game about idols and MUSIC, you’d think they’d put a LITTLE more umpth into the music variation, especially when its distant cousin in the Persona game genre has multiple battle themes.
Gameplay:
Replay Value:
Overall: 9/10. It’s really closer to 8, but I’m giving it a bump for my FE bias. :V And Hosoyan bias. :V

Older thoughts below:

I’m a little confused if it’s just because I bought the jp version, but did they really not subtitle any of the songs or battle quotes in the English version? If so then yes I understand why people would complain it’s too Japanese for them lol… WTF localization team

It’s a bit of a shame that the first dungeon of the game is a real PITA as the other ones have been a lot more tolerable for the most part… first dungeon impression just terrible. Worth using a walkthrough to spare time but I was hoping to go without one for as long as I could.
