10 RPGs we want on Xbox One

OXM UK - "RPGs on Xbox One! Turns out a fair few of you are keen on the idea, though I suspect the prospect of a free Xbox 360 game may have had something to do with that. It's my pleasure to present the winners of last week's Diablo 3 competition, mighty champions of the genre one and all. If there is, in fact, a place called Valhalla, you'll find these great souls seated at the top table, quaffing Mountain Dew and throwing balled-up collectable world maps at the FPS-chugging peasants outside the window." (Culture, Final Fantasy VII, Knights of the Old Republic MMO, Ninokuni, Skies of Arcadia, Xbox One)

Grandia would have been a good pick too.

The possibility of some these RPGs being remade is actually higher on the PS4.

Just saying.

Ni no Kuni ? LOL seriously ?

No harm in dreaming!

Level-5 isn't owned by Sony, in any case.

x1 will have no RPG i can promise you that. with PS4 taking the lead and releasing way before RPG on x1 will be irrelevant to consider, even if they're exclusive.
Just look at all the love PS3 is getting from Japan in terms of exclusive content.

And notice that except Blue Dragon, The Last Remnant and Lost Odyssey, all other JRPGs that released first on 360 came out to PS3 with more content and better quality. Also, notice SquareEnix everytime they comment on KHIII it's in regards to PS4 architecture and what extra RAM allows them to achieve.

And to comment the article, this is one retard list from a pro xbox website. Ni no Kuni, Crono Cross, Dragon Questm FF7 on xbox?
dirigiblebill  +   770d ago
It's a list of games readers of the site want. I'm not sure why you feel so threatened by it, abzdine.

80% of level-5 fan base are in JP ..

the day xbone sells more then PS4 in JP -ROFL- we may see level-5 titles coming to the xbone

BTW M$ already had a whole year there and bought a lot of JRPGs and it didnt help the x360 at all so i can't see M$ investing the same amount of money in JP this round

Pedro, I totally was not expecting you to say something like that.

Oh wait... I mean, the opposite. Yeah... that.

@ abzdine

why is this dude butthurt? non of these are sony owned.
do you think JRPGs sell more on ps3? they perform decently like on 360, and some do worse on ps3..also, at least MS invested in JRPGs and provided us with great games like Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Tales of Vesperia, Infinite Undiscovery, but what did sony do for JRPG fans?? what games they spent money on to make? all i remember is Demon's Souls and umm freaking uncharted? Killzone? GoW?? oh sorry these are not JRPGs!

i really hope SE make FF7 remake and exclusive FF15 and KH3 contents for XB1 :D

Hey kid, FYI, JRPG's like Wild Arms series, Legend of Legaia, Legend of Dragoon, Popolocrois series, Arc the Lad series, Dark Cloud series, Soul Sacrifice series, and Rogue Galaxy are JRPG that made (or co-developed), published, and owned by Sony.

And in this gen, besides the amazing Demon's Souls, Sony supported Level 5 by develope & published White Knight Chronicles trilogy and Jeanne D'Arc.

There's also the possibility that Sony help Nippon Ichi Software. Because most of their titles are exclusive for Sony platform.

Not to mention, years ago Sony gave a big help for Squaresoft by promoting (and publishing) FF VII EVERYWHERE. From Pepsi, Rolling Stone, even Playboy had FF VII ads:
Some info said that Sony even toss 100 mill USD just to promote FF VII.

And not just FF VII, Sony also help Squaresoft by publishing some of their titles like FF Tactics (one of the best FF i ever play), Saga Frontier, Tobal no 1, Bushido Blade, Einhander, and The Bouncer in the west.

Sony already gave a lot to JRPG fans. That's why i'm asking back to you:

Beside Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and Infinite Undiscovery, what other thing that MS do in this gen to satisfy JRPG fans?????
j-blaze  +   770d ago
Ni No Kuni, FFXIV, Lost Odyssey 2 and new Tales would be awesome!

and man i'm so glad FF15 and KH3 is heading to XB1 :)
Magicite  +   770d ago
No You dont want JRPG's on Xbox, it has already been proven in current gen, even such great game as Last Odyssey sold very poor (less than 1 million units).
Snookies12  +   770d ago
"Ni no Kuni Quite possibly the PS3's last great JRPG."

Hey, Tales of Xillia came out a little after that and was fantastic too.

Either way though, some good choices for sure. I refuse to give up hope on seeing an updated FFVII... D:

NNK was garbage, so there's that too.
Snookies12  +   770d ago
It didn't really suit my tastes, so I only played about 10-15 hours before stopping. Though I recognize that it was a very beautiful game, and had some good moments. I certainly wouldn't call it anything less than a decent game.

Even if it wasn't up my alley, I know it was a wonderful game to others.
Dragonborn312  +   770d ago
Knights of The Old Republic HD would be amazing.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   770d ago
That game needs a remake the graphics look awful when you play it now even in HD. Amazing game though.
black0o  +   770d ago
Xbox and RPG don't do that well .. only Action-based RPSs may hve a chance
OrangePowerz  +   770d ago
Ni No Kuni doesn't need a graphics upgrade.

As for KoTOR, I rather have a new one instead of replaying a previous game.

Where is Persona?

"Xbox Ideology"
Why, why implement an ideology to an audience that is truly mis-labeled as "SHOOTERBROS". This type of label is quite fake at most, sure you actually have these types of people who are the main consumers for any type of platform; INCLUDING THE PS3.
I know people who you would believe to be the type of person who plays Xbox to play shooters, nope. I know people whop play Xbox to play only games like the final fantasy series and any other J/RPG available. You are the lost one my friend.

None really come to mind I rarely finish any rpgs I would like some old linear action please lens flare and sandbox killing gaming.

One of my biggest complains about the Xbox is that there arent enough RPG's or JRPG's for the console and is actually my biggest reason to buy a PS4 is the upcoming year
christocolus  +   770d ago
fanboys and their insecurities...xbx one will definitly be home to a number of nice rpgs..either from 1st, 2nd or 3rd party devs..phil spencer has already stated they are working on a number of unique exclusive xbx one games in japan inhouse and with some japanese its possible there will be a number of rpgs in there just as they did with lost odysee and blu dragon... final fantasy 13 also sold very well on xbx 360
, the producer of final fantasy 14 def wants his game on the xbx one he has stated it so many times but he also says its ms deceision cos ms isnt ok with opening up their network to allow cross platform play with pc and ps3 and ff15 and kh3 ar definitly coming to the xbx that list i wouldnt mind chrono trigger , knights of the old republic and sequels to jade empire, lost odysee and blu dragon.....
EXVirtual  +   770d ago
No Japanese 3rd party dev will be willing to make an XBO exclusive.
The game would flop like a hyper fish.
XboxFun  +   770d ago

What you have to understand Christo is that when it comes to JRPG's the SDF suddenly remind you that sales are now important and they matter, this is why no JRPGS's will appear on the Xbox One.

Another fine hypocrisy moment brought to you by the SDF fanboys.

imho Great Article, but. That's not going to happen
GrandpaSnake  +   770d ago
i laugh every time i go to all my friends pad, out of the 4 that have a xbox only 1 owns blue dragon(never beat it lol) none gave lost odyssey a chance. It might of boosted in jpn sales but i just dont see your average gamer in america investing on those games. If anything blue dragon, lost odyssey would of made a huge splash on the playstation brand.
if you look at software sales on the 360 it is obvious that americans dont buy jrpg's in comparison to shooters and fps

I'm disappointed to see so many old games listed. HD remakes are fine, but why not something new? It's bad enough developers are too afraid to innovate, but lists like these seem to validate their fears. I'd like to see a new Final Fantasy that takes the good qualities of the old games and builds upon them in gameplay and utilizes the new technology for graphics as well, not a game I've already played only prettier.

Innovation will lead to the success of the Xbox1 and PS4, not clinging to the past. If you want to play old games, go ahead, but you don't have to wait for a developer to make them all over again.
