The genre of JRPG has found a home on Switch, and Nintendo Everything goes over some of the games and companies involved.
The switch is more like a small apartment at most
I have both Switch and PS5, and Jrpgs are my favorite genre. Considering nearly every Jrpg on the Switch is also on PS4/5, and many exclusively so, and considering they generally look far better, and play smoother on the latter, I almost never play them on the Switch. Though in fairness, the next game on my list is a Switch game, Fire Emblem 3H, and whenever SMTV comes out, that'll be another 100+ hours sunk into it. But for me personally, Playstation has always been the home for Jrpgs, since I was a kid.
I wish I had time to play a JRPG like I used to..
Same here no time anymore. That ps360wii gen needs to be back rewind to 2007 brilliant gaming the best ever
You're right. The OLED becomes very difficult to justify when for only $50 more you can get a PS5 DE that plays games at 4K/60fps. I enjoy my Switch, but I'm tired of Nintendo always being a generation behind the competition....and charging a premium for it. Until Nintendo fixes joycon drift and 60fps becomes the standard for Switch games, they don't get another cent from me.
More like 2 generations behind now.
The Steam Deck is slightly more powerful than a PS4 and costs slightly more than a PS5 if you get the 2nd tier model which has a usable amount of storage, why are you comparing the highest end version of the switch to the cheapest PS5 model?.The N64 and GameCube were both more powerful than the competition yet lost out in sales by a large margin, they’re not going to ditch a system that’s going to break 100 million sales. They’re not remotely comparable devices outside they play games, the smaller and more powerful you make something, the price skyrockets. It’s the reason phones are so expensive and laptops cost more than desktops for worse performance.
I pretty much feel the same way, the Playstation is my main JRPG machine, although I was going to use the Switch for that as well, it just didn't work out that way for me.
Really? Quite a lot of JRPGs missing. More like a back alley.
No it isn't. It's just one more place where they exist. Steam has more than any other platform.
Steamdeck incoming !!! Hopefully the more niche games work properly lol
If I can get stuff like Aokana, If My Heart Had Wings, Maitetsu and Nekopara along with the 18+ patches then I'll definitely get a Steam Deck as well.
There's an article claiming this every other month like they're trying to convince themselves when they know Sony holds the crown Edit: there's also steam but I'm pretty sure whoever wrote this article is meaning console
No it's clearly an anti sony article like all the others. Sony needs to pay off some joirnalists already. Everyone else does it.
I feel that this is true but when they decide to create big piece games then they’ll be on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S
Not sure about that, I play my JRPGs elsewhere at the mo, however I will be playing SMT V and Triangle Strategy which come out soon.
Both have strenght and weaknesses, but for now the one im looking forward is smtV and bayonetta 3..
Depending on the JRPG I rotate them through my consoles if they are Sony exclusive I buy them for Playstation. If the JRPG is between Nintendo and Sony I go Switch. If the title is multiplatform sometimes I will put it on Xbox I did that with Tales of Arise been having fun playing it on the old XB1. But if the JRPG has a physical copy and the others are digital copies only I go with who ever offers the physical port of the title.
Nah that's my PS4/PS5. The Switch is a close second.
Visual novels too! It's the first console that actually supports them really well in the West. All the ones that released for vita were mostly Japan only.
The Switch is the RV Motorhome of JRPGs
It is only ahead of the Xbox, PC and PS are far and away the house of JRPGs.
@SinkingSage PS is no longer the undisputed house of JRPGs. Most of the major series are also on Xbox. Most of the former niche exclusives like Atelier, Disgaea, Ys, The legend of heroes, etc have had to go to the Nintendo Switch since PS sales are crap compared to Nintendo Switch in Japan. Outside of Demon Souls that was developed by Bluepoint who Sony just recently purchased name another jrpg that has been internally developed or published by Sony in the last 4 years. You can't do it. Meanwhile Nintendo has released Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Fire Emblem three houses, Fire emblem echoes, Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Xenoblade Chronicles definitive edition, various Pokemon games, etc. The title is correct Nintendo is the house of the jrpg.
