The best RPG for the 3DS at the moment

There are some good RPGs for the 3DS, but this game blows them away. Fun to play, never gets boring, story keeps you interested the whole way through, battle system is simple to understand but hard to master espicially the bosses which make you rethink and change your strategy. Love the story better then Vesperia but Vesperia still has a better group of characters in my opinion.

When I first saw the reviews on it, I thought this game was going to be mundane and similar to other games that I have played. My expectations of the game were not significantly high and I thought to be returning it the next day.

To my surprise the game play itself wasn't the only thing that kept me going, but the story-line was perplexing. The predictions I made ahead of time of what would happen were dashed as it unfolded bringing new ideas into my head.
The graphics weren't amazing, but with the 3D effect it brought it up to a level that I enjoyed.
The style of fighting is repetitive, but with the add on of new skills and items made it refreshed as my characters grew in level!
I hope many would consider to trying out this game and also experience the same joy I have received.

A very anime-themed RPG with a high production value to it. The music, graphics and voice acting are all very good. If you don't like things that are cute you might get annoyed by some of the game's elements. My one big complaint was the battle system being a little repetitive. But I liked it enough that I went and bought it so I definitely recommend.
