1st reviewer: Although it’s based on the 3DS version, this is not a simple HD remaster as everything has been created from scratch, which leaves a good impression. In particular, you can take a look at the enhanced graphics, which represents the appealing world seen in the TV anime well. The game balance has also been readjusted, and the fun of managing usage of Jara is also increased which is good. The first 4 episodes of the TV anime are also included, so I’m really glad that it could let people understand the world setting easily. 9
2nd reviewer: While having the same impression as the 3DS version, the graphics have been largely remade which made it look more beautiful. When you go to the back sides of buildings and walls, the character’s outlines got shown, which is a good thing as it becomes easy to know where they are. The camera angle has been changed, which also improves visibility. The differences on Jara effects used by enemies have become clear, thus making battles more chewy which is good. The quest reward system has also changed, and I’m feeling that the game has been brushed up everywhere. 9
3rd reviewer: This treasure hunt emits a maniac aroma that you’d want to call this a “hack-and-slash for everybody.” Affinities between weapons and enemies are actually shown, which is pleasant and stimulates the desire to collect things. By linking with the toys, you can experience a crossing between digital and real worlds, which is also appealing. In comparison to the light impressions on the looks, I felt like the system is a bit complex with a lot of commands, but children should be able to digest this easily. I haven’t played the 3DS version yet when I [wrote] this review. 9
4th reviewer: Although I haven’t played the 3DS version yet, the gags scattered by the hack-and-slash action and the dense characters add good spices to the routine explorations. The 4-people multiplayer has dungeons where it’s easy to look at even when enemies and allies alike are jumbled in; you can press a single button to switch into a weapon that strikes through the enemy’s weakness and perform combos. They created [this game] by prioritizing the exhilarating feel for players. As this includes paid DLC & the anime, I feel that this is more beneficial when compared to the 3DS version. 8
Total score: 35/40
