1UP: JRPGs have fallen on tough times as of late. Final Fantasy XIII, the flagship of the genre in the west, received lukewarm reviews when Square Enix released it earlier this year. Meanwhile, Dragon Quest IX has been setting Japan on fire for nearly a year, but has yet to see a western release. The best titles in the genre in recent memory have been for handheld systems. That may be about to change. Nintendo released Monolith's new Wii RPG Xenoblade this month in Japan.
