Crosses fingers* X from Monolithsoft is the GTA Jrpg we've been waiting for!

It's looking like it very well may be. From gameplay videos (I don't actually own it yet), Xenoblade looks to almost be just that.

This new one actually has large bustling cities form the second trailer, so we may have what we've wanted pretty soon.

Agreed, Now I'm just waiting to hear about online multiplayer.
Sadly I missed out on Xenoblade on Wii so X will be a nice treat for me!
My last Rpg experience was FF9 which was made by Square and X developers are comprised of former Square staff so this should be a good outcome.
Last Story 2 hopefully is announced soon also!

Don't know if you remember this ^ but if it ended up actually being concept art, hell.

Doubtful. Looks like the PSO of Monster Hunter games, but it has yet to reveal any RPG aspects.

The last Star Ocean was likely as close a JRPG will come to being a WRPG to the degree GTAV is.

in response to your second comment, persona is not really a multiplatform series. there has literally been only three games in the series that weren't only on PlayStation.

- Revelations: Persona (PS1, PSP & Windows)
- Persona 4: Arena (PS3 & Xbox 360)
- Persona Q (Nintendo 3DS)

All the other ones have been PlayStation only. even Persona 5 is exclusive.

X is great and I'm waiting for it too, but being console exclusive means the market's going to be limited.
I say for JRPG to be giants like GTA it has to be multiplatform, meanwhile nowadays they tend to be Nintendo/Sony exclusives.

From what I see chances in the near future are:
1. KH 3
2. FF XV, if they delivers
3. Maybe if Persona/Zelda goes multiplatform?

Persona is multiplatform.

Come to think of it, Persona is the closest thing a JRPG comes to GTA/open world.

It both isn't yet is, but also comes with many layers. Like the options to either fight, bribe, intimidate or even flirt with encounters.

Do you really want a jrpg with stupid plot and characters?
