9. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE
Platform: Wii U
rnThe Wii U is effectively dead, with production on the console stopping entirely, and Nintendo’s new console, The Switch, peaking over the horizon. But, the Wii U has always boasted an impressive library of exclusive games and IPs that made it a worthwhile purchase.
rnBut one such title, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, flew way under the radar toward the end of the Wii U’s lifespan. I was fortunate enough to review this game back when I was a freelancer whose only job was to review the games that no one else wanted. Every now and then, though, I’d get a gem thrown my way, and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE was definitely one of them.
rnA crossover between popular Nintendo franchises, Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE even played a bit like the Persona game, but with an anime story anyone could enjoy and combat that was both inventive and wildly entertaining. It’s safe to say this game was a huge surprise, and a rare find for 2016.
