JRPGs We Hope To Be Revived On PS4

With the supposed PlayStation 4 announcement taking place tomorrow, many JRPG fans once again hope that franchises that missed out this generation with the PlayStation 3 will now return. While there are franchises like Tales and Final Fantasy still living, other franchises that were in the PSOne and PS2 era have died since died out. (PS2, PS3, PS4)

LEGEND OF DRAGOON. Yes. That would be the one for me. I'm playing it on Vita and it's still quite brilliant, even today.

Next-gen will be like this one: that means there will be only Final Fantasy and all the rest on 3DS. It's obvious Japan doesn't give a fuck anymore of home consoles and it's also obvious we keep don't giving a fuck about jRPGs in general. So there will always be Final Fantasy (that in the west is just known as FF and not as a jRPG, considering the gap in sales between this and the other series)

Legend Of Dragoon is awesome, but...would it sell?
Ni No Kuni sold well, but under a million...Xenoblade that is said to be one of the best JRPG ever sold less than a million.
It would be risky for Sony to make a Legend Of Dragoon 2.
Same for the other IPs mentioned in the article.

How about ALL

Final Fantasy
Legend of Dragoon
Breath of Fire
Tactics Ogre
Skies of Arcadia
Brave Fencer Musashi
Ni no Kuni
Rogue Galaxy
Dark Cloud
Tales of

and more

Nope, JRPGs will be revived primarily on the 3DS/Vita/PS3. People forget that these JRPG publishers/developers generally aren't the biggest studios. With the "supposed" increased dev costs for next gen, you can bet that MOST JRPG games will be on handhelds(lower cost to develop) or current gen consoles.

Heck, the few good JRPGs on the PS3 sold like crap. The fact that we're still gettin em is a miracle.

Who would disagree with that list? lol

Excellent list of games, Breath of fire in particular is wasted potential

I'm surprised you didn't mention of my favorite JRPG franchise ever.
VileAndVicious  +   1013d ago

BitbyDeath  +   1013d ago

Oneirous  +   1013d ago
Chrono series. Final Fantasy.
Shinekami  +   1013d ago
Valkyria Chronicles
Inception  +   1013d ago
VC4 with new / updated canvas engine is an automatic day one buy!

But with current shitstorm for Sega (Alien collonial marines bomb), i don't think they have the guts to make VC4 T_T
kalkano  +   1013d ago
Arc the Lad
Real Final Fantasy
Real Shining Force
Golden Sun (wouldn't a console one be great?)
Skies of Arcadia
Vandal Hearts
White Knight Chronicles
FamilyGuy  +   1013d ago
I wish more people got into white knight chronicles, a ps4 version would be amazing but i doubt it'll happen. Even with level-5s success with ni no kuni another white knight chronicles type game would be unlikely to release outside of japan because of all the hate.

FF6 needs a PS4 remake

Suikoden please.
Chrono  +   1013d ago
PS3 barely had a few good JRPGs, I doubt there will many of them on the next gen.

Ni no Kuni II
