Does anyone know of any RPGs coming soon outside of Skyrim? Especially if one doesn't care for the style of gameplay that is going to be in Skyrim?

I know there is Deus Ex but that is to close to the FPS genre. Looking for more sword and magic if anything.

I know there should be another RPG or two that's coming, but the only one that I can think of that's coming out here is Dark Souls and that one is more like an action/RPG than a typical RPG. That has a lot of sword and magic for you...if you're willing to tolerate the punishing difficulty that is!

Well in January Kingdom of Amalur: The Reckoning is coming out. Don't know if it will be good or not. Most RPG's I can think of are part shooter like Deus Ex and Mass Effect.

Dark Souls

But handhelds are the way to go for most RPGs. FF Type-0 is coming out soon in Japan and Fate/Extra as well as Legend of Heroes is coming out for the PSP.

Path of Exile. Like Diablo, only Blizzard can't, and hasn't ruined it.

Disgaea 4 if you enjoy grid-based turn-based combat like Fire Emblem and Advance Wars.:P

guildwars 2 gets a +1 from me.. visually solid offering alot of nice pluses and the monthly fee is exactly $0.00 US and wont ever be subject to change (if you didnt catch on that means there isnt one)

id explain mroe but im afraid this is all i need to do to get you to want this game like the rest of us @ pc & mac games (omitting skyward cause hes a PR rep for bioware)

If you're counting them, Deus Ex HR is out in a couple of weeks, and ME3 is out March next year. Other than that, Dark Souls? If you haven't already played it, The Witcher 2?

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. Torchlight 2 looks pretty good. Didn't know when Kingdom of Alamur was launching. I would love to play Xenoblade but I think I'm going to have to go to extra lengths in order to play that. :( Damn you Nintendo of America!!!

Man, I wish I owned a Playstation 3 again. I would have been all over Tales Of Grace F...love the Tales series. It's too bad that Namco keeps on screwing over the XBox 360 owners with less and less Tales release on that system. And someone mentioned Dragon Nest...that game looks AWESOME! I hope that is released on console sometime!

if you don't care about the style of the gameplay the obvious answer is Disgaea 4 which is pretty much the opposite, a turn based strategy JRPG with a light hearted story

Dark Souls and Deux Ex and just because you shoot a gun in a game doesn't make it a fsp, if you think Deus Ex is a shooter then you haven't paid attention to the game that much.

The only RPG (or, I should say, Action/RPG) I'm looking forward to is Mass Effect 3. It's due to be released on March 6, 2012.
