Let’s Talk About JRPGs

Let’s Talk About JRPGs

Here at Kotaku, we don’t spend nearly enough time talking about JRPGs. I mean, sure, we have a column every week dedicated to JRPGs, and we’re usually pretty good about covering RPG news from Japan, and I do my best to cover JRPGs as much as humanly possible.

But, still. There’s just so much to discuss. Persona Q comes out in a few weeks; I’ve been playing! It’s good! If you’re into Etrian Odyssey-style dungeon-crawling, this game really hits the spot. (Expect more thoughts closer to release.)

Final Fantasy XV continues to seem like a Real Game That’s Actually Happening. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD looks great. Is Final Fantasy finally back in business?

Speaking of games with the word “Fantasy” in them, Fantasy Life came out of nowhere to become one of my favourite games of the year. God, it’s just so charming and well-written and fun to play.

Meanwhile, XSEED quietly admitted that they’re probably not going to ship Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC — one of my most anticipated games — before next year.

What else is going on in the world of JRPGs? What’re you playing? What are you looking forward to?

Random Encounters is a column dedicated to all things JRPG.
