I noticed that this is rated "E 10+". Can anyone comment on what age this is appropriate for? Is it good for kids ages 5-9?

I played this game on the PS Vita and don't recall any reason it wouldn't be suitable for a 5-9 year old kid; i.e., no obscene/adult themes or language, but the game's story does touch on death and is grim at times. Also, there are some minor RPG combat mechanics to grasp and all of the dialog is "poetic" in nature... Price is good!

This game is amazing and absolutely worth the low time and low expense. I bought this for my 7yo daughter and I enjoyed it as much as she did. The art, playability, sound track, story are all fantastic. I wish it were a little longer.

Love this game. Very casual J-RPG battle system style with lovely music, incredible graphics, and captivating story.
Have played it twice, and cant wait to play it again in a few years.

I would suggest playing this game on a PC, as its easier to handle the sprite with the mouse.
I would also suggest a big screen (bigger than the 3ds or Switch), as the graphics are quite beautiful, and on a system that can produce good sound. Next time I should try playing it on my 55" tv with 5.1.2 sound system.

Things I didnt like.
Its a short game. Especially compared to bigger RPGs. I wanted more.
Its easy on normal mode. Maybe too easy. Hard more can be too challenging. Needs an in between mode.
PC version does not support high resolution displays. Its an old game. My PC running at 1440p had graphics errors when entering battle. I'm sure this does not apply to the Switch version though.

It was a pretty decent game but I'm glad it wasn't longer than it is. It starts to get kind of grindy/ repetitive after a while.

The biggest single turn-off though is that every piece of dialogue is written in poetry. Like, really bad forced rhyming poetry. After the first hour or so I started skipping all story elements because I couldn't take it anymore.
I had basically the same experience with the game, but forced myself to read all dialogue. I wish I wouldn't have. The story isn't very good (to a grown man). I would not play again.

Though people who love western children's stories (with vague writing, rhymes, and magical stuff happening for no reason) should give it a try.

If you love a great JRPG, but you only have 8-10 hours to devote to it, this your game.

Sadly there will be no sequel, since Ubisoft only wants to do "games as a service" trash.

I was surprised I didn't already own this on the Switch! (I own this on PC, XBOX, PS4....)

I had to pick this up on Switch for this price! Repped!
