While a lot of tastes were represented pretty well at this year’s E3, one genre went widely ignored. JRPGS, or RPGs with a distinct Japanese flavor, have pretty much fallen from prominence in the last generation of consoles. It’s not that they were completely absent, but whereas you used to be buried in a plethora of them, these days you have to look a little harder. This year has been fairly desolate so far for JRPGs with the most prominent easily being Bravely Default for the 3DS (and that’s really out of just a handful of RPGs in general).
But never fear JRPG fans, I’ve rounded up 10 games that we should all be pretty psyched for, and I’m not even counting stuff like Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMix since that’s a compilation of stuff we’ve already played. These are 10 games that have never been released before in the US, so they are all new to us.
