For the most part I agree with you, but I disagree about Monster Hunter being an RPG. I've played it and it's no where near an RPG in my opinion. An Action/Adventure game, sure. RPG? No.

But with that disagreement out of the way, I'd love to see Dragon Quest VII brought out for download. Final Fantasy XII would also see good success for re-release (after all they're bring X back for the Vita, why not XII too?) Dragon Quest VIII, Champions of Norrath, Return to Arms, Suikoden III, just to name a few PS2 greats that deserve to be re-released.

More so than re-releases, I'd like to see new IPs or new installments of established IPs. Series like Champions, Breath of Fire, Suikoden, and Persona would see great success I believe on the Vita.

We can only hope that in time there will be more RPGs announced for the Vita.

i was really hoping for xii for the vita, but x is good also i guess. ill definitely be buying x for vita if anything, just to show them that theres a market for them to remake these games

Haha, and Persona 4 is gonna be on the vita eventually. Can't forget that. Also with FF Type 0 probably performing better on the vita with the second analog stick, that's probably 100-200 hours of RPG just on those two games alone. Not to mention FFX on it too. And I'm also gonna finally play FFXIII and FFIX on it too.

I was honestly thinking I'm gonna play way too many RPGs on my vita when I get it to be honest.

Persona 4 "extended" (with 50% MORE content) will be coming to Vita. Dragon's Crown is a action/RPG hybrid made by the same people who did Muramasa and Odin's Sphere. I imagine Disgaea 4 (with added content) will eventually make its way to the Vita.

But to be honest, I expect the DS and PSP to remain the indie RPG source for a little while longer. Smaller RPG devs can't afford to make high-end RPGs on the DS and Vita yet.

Isn't gravity rush meant to be a RPG?

IGN had a preview up yesterday, and they called it an "RPG".So, yes I guess.

In my opinion...
Action Adventure game with RPG elements.

The title for the preview on IGN is: "Gravity Rush: Not Your Average RPG"

RPGs have really found a home on handhelds -- the PSP and DS have far, far more great RPGs (at least JRPGs) than the home consoles do.

I'm hoping that the Vita will allow RPG devs, which are traditionally lower budget (hence, the appeal of handhelds to them), to have the power to do some cool stuff, while still not having to blow a huge budget on development.

If all we get, on the Vita, are PS2-grade games with higher-rez graphics and fancier scenery (i.e. "HD" ports of PS2 RPGs), I'm going to be happy. The fact that most of the great PSP RPGs are going to be playable on the Vita (as PSN downloads) is already enticing enough.

It's not specificly Vita but im looking forward to trying out FF Type 0 on Vita.

I'm hoping it will become the go to machine for jRPGs because its supposed to be easy to develop for.

agreed, hopefully they even put in a little extra functionality for the vita, i heard that they were planning on letting us use the second analog, and thats cool, but i would enjoy it even more if it took advantage of everything else the vita has to offer.

Squares new action RPGs that aren't announced yet are on Vita and Ps3 I'm pretty sure. This along with FFX are getting me excited.

ff type 0, persona 4 golden,tales of innocence R,FF 10, RUIN,there are tons of rpgs lined up for the vita. and these are just a few of the soon releases.

Type-O is a PsP game, FF10 is a ten years old PS2 game, Persona 4 is just another re-release of a PS2 game and Innocence R is an updated version of a crappy DS game. =(

Even though the series gets a lot of hate I'd love to see a new White Knight Chronicles on the Vita, Also like the author says they need to release Crisis Core on the Ps Store it is one of the best RPG's I've ever played and IMO the best FF's the reason I bought a PSP.

I have a feeling it'll get some good RPG support especially JRPG as it seems all of them went to handhelds this gen and I imagine they'll do the same again. I just hope most of them make it to the West and in a timely manner as I still don't think the WKC psp game has made it to the USA.

I like WKC but its not nearly as good as what Level 5 did with Darck Cloud. I wish they did something more like that again because WKC is enjoyable for a bit but I couldn't get into it.
