This thread was exactly what I needed to purge my body of those cheeseburgers I hate. Thank you Sony!

I might have to buy a Vita soon.

Figures you couldn't post that without being a damn fanboy. Do you ever shut that off? :roll:
#9 Posted by hexashadow13 (5157 posts) -
Noice! Have Ni No Kuni. Will pick up KH1.5 and probably FF13-3 eventually. Rest I need more info on I guess. Also, change the pic for KH1.5 please. I'm pretty sure that scene isn't from any of the games in KH1.5 and is only in KH2 and 3D AFAIK.

The one with green tentacles? So it's THAT kind of game

Not enough of this:

That's more a PC VN thing than a console JRPG thing. :P

#12 Posted by game_masta14 (3251 posts) -
Hope Ni no Kuni goes on sale so I can get it. One of the few RPGs I don't wanna miss.
#13 Posted by Wanderer5 (25726 posts) -

Rune Factory 4 is actually coming this summer, and Soul Hackers is coming out next month (along with Pandora Tower). Also Black Rock Shooter is a PSP game.:P

Game of the year right there.

Yay. More hack and slash or turn based. Ugh.

Why'd you edit? :}

 

Also, (just as an fyi) I had heard tentacles have been an exotic fetish in Japan for a long time. Some of those fantasies where established (in Japanese culture) long before the hentai you dirty dirty people watch. (You should all feel disgusted with yourselves!)

 

You nasty boys. :x

 

#20 Posted by bbkkristian (14967 posts) -
Too bad all of them still don't have exact release dates or they're being released in fall. :| I want every one of them :)

Outside of Ni No Kuni, the art direction on display is vomit inducing.

I love that series and I just picked up a Vita yesterday so I'm definitely getting that. I'd kill for a 2.5D remake of Super Castlevania IV though.

I sure they are planning to have the Vita fanbase be able to play it, since the PSP is done now outside of Japan. Does the localization even exist? Doesn't seem to be any news on it for a while. Also don't forget Shin Megami Tensei 4 for the 3DS, which is looking great.

It looks like a great year for JRPG overall. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 is most definitely a day one buy while I check out Pokemon Y and SMT 4.

They all look the exact same!

It's an upgraded version of a PSP Digimon game for the 3DS. The only chance of it getting localized for the PSP is if they make it digital only, I don't see it coming over on either system though.

All i know is that NISA confirmd the localization plans but no one have heard anything yet.. NISA still said its coming soon tho.

Since this is an English forum there's no real point to.

#41 Posted by Nintendo_Ownes7 (30917 posts) -

Their might be some more I don't know if you listed Project X Zone.

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem might be this year we don't know yet.
X might also release this year but we don't know yet aswell.

[QUOTE="wakefulness"]Not enough loli's for you, freedom?:Pfreedomfreak

 

 

Drakengard 3 is on my to-love list though.

 

I remember playing JRPG's with at least a loli in them way back in the day (Evolution on the Dreamcast has a loli-ish girl in it) and not thinking twice about it; instead, just jumping into dungeons with (usually) a boy as the main character to punch stuff.

 

Now, it's like most Japanese games took what I had as an after thought in a game (i.e. the much more censored loli design) and bolt on some heir of "ooh, you want to sex this don't you?" to it. Kind of like how most girly J-pop/k-pop bands do.

 

Anyways, what's Drakengard about? ( :P I know that's a big change of topic, but I have been thinking about Japanese gaming/society for awhile now)

#43 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38218 posts) -

360 are getting Uncharted 3?

#44 Posted by Heil68 (46127 posts) -
Nice list, will look into some of them.

I really can't deal with these loli type of games. It's not my thang, although I have no problem with people that do. Play away! Drakengard is the next installment in the Drakengard franchise. It's an interesting franchise story-wise, It's messed up. Pedophilia, child abuse, incest. But it's not in-your-face. It's well written and interesting enough, and doesn't use these "taboo" themes to carry the game or make some kind of point. It's Cavia's work. They are interesting, and they are back for this one(some of the staff is, at least), which almost brings a tear to my eye. Gameplay wise, it's like Dynasty Warriors combined with Lair.
#46 Posted by MLBknights58 (5015 posts) -

 Gameplay is like.. Dynasty warriors and Lair. freedomfreak

 

I can't begin to fathom how that combination could even be remotely interesting.

But, I haven't played it so I can't really judge.

To make it even better, the combat is worse than Dynasty Warriors (going off of the first).

MLBknights58
Well, you have ground combat. You slice away at enemies like you'd do in DW. Then there's air battles, which is the same but on a dragon. I also believe there is a combo of both. You can jump off, and mount your dragon whenever you want. Gameplay isn't all that interesting. You just have to be okay with the repetitiveness.

Yeah, that's true.
#50 Posted by ConanTheStoner (6238 posts) -

Well at least you have a couple of good/promising games in the OP.

And my god, for some reason I thought XIII-3 had already come and gone.  SE needs to hurry up and squeeze that one out of their digestive tract.  They really need a fresh start.
