The Nintendo Wii U entertainment is truly a remarkable device. Developers around the world have spoken. So far there has been nothing short of outstanding, and very positive praise for the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system, and the unique innovations brought to the round table of the gaming industry.

The JRPG genre is one of my personal favorite. Hearing more positive speak, praising the innovations of the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system tablet control functions brings tears of joy to my very eyes. Nintendo may have created a device that will save the struggling JRPG genre on home consoles.

Release of this Nintendo, handcrafted master piece is only months away. Soon we will all be blessed with the future of the forever evolving gaming spectrum. With next generation kicking off when Nintendo says that it does. It will be amazing to see what JRPG devs bless our souls with when they harness the absolute power of the Nintendo Wii U entertainment systems bleeding edge tech, and innovative functions. We should all show great respect.

Have a blessed day and happy gaming.

I just hope....
... the JRPG's on the WiiU will ALL have the option for the original language included, instead of just a few, like Xenoblade Chronicles.

I just hope....
... the JRPG's on the WiiU will ALL make it to North America.

Agreed, and very well said.

As always it is a pleasure, and a privilege, my friend.

P.S.

Indeed. I am very pleased with all the news that keeps coming out about the Wii U. I just finished Lost Odyssey, an amazing JRPG by Mistwalker studio. So, hearing these guys talk highly of the Nintendo Wii U is really a great thing. I just hope Nintendo is able to help Third Parties find success on their console. If they are able to do this than the Wii U will be a major success.

@LX-

I just hope things don't go sour for Nintendo...

They haven't marketed this yet but the word should be out there. Marketing is a powerful tool and they should be wowing the core audiences.

You and I both have the same desire and admiration for...drum roll... JRPG.

If the team will make LS wiiu I would be so happy.

Wow do you make love to your consuls.... I think what nintendo is doing is somewhat cool as well but they said knect was great too and look how that turned out. I miss the old turn based jrpgs that focsed on story not grafics. I'd love to see rpgs grace the WIIU but even if they did they would end up crap like ff13 did.

Glad to see someone sees the jrpg/srpg potential in it. Hopefully the wii-u will be the jrpg machine we didnt get this gen (outside of the early years of the 360 and the finl years of the wii). I would love to see it used for setting up formations, planning attcks, and all the menus so the tv is purely for the action and cinematics. Make it happen Mistwalker!

I also hope square is interested in putting real games on the system and not crystal chronicle bullshit. DQ10 is a start and they do go all out on the ds/3ds but i want a kingdom hearts and real ff on it.

Of course us in the west won't get a chance to experience most of these JRPGs cause Nintendo will region lock the WiiU.

Break the locks

Xenoblade and Last Story are already localized. There isn't even a need to import them.

I get a good lol out of your trademark. "break the locks"

There is a reason why they have it. Why not go and start a petition...just saying it won't break the locks.

Omg, if Nintendo doesn't announce a new Baiten Kaitos game for WiiU! This RPG is hands down meant for this system... But It isn't hard to see how the gamepad can reinvigorate the JRPG scene and not to mention give new life to RTS's in the console space as well!

If more games are made available as downloads, it won't be as risky for the companies who make them. Digital copies don't require manufacturing, which saves money and makes it easier to make a profit. Hopefully Nintendo will help third parties do this. I'm sure it would make JRPGs more viable in the West.
