The Year In JRPGs

Jason Schreier:

It's been a strange year for JRPG fans.

On one hand, the genre seems to be doing just fine: we finally got our hands on games like Xenoblade and The Last Story, the 3DS and Vita are full of JRPGs, and companies like XSEED and Atlus are cranking out niche Japanese games on a regular basis.

On the other hand, it's hard to escape that feeling of gloom as more and more Japanese RPGs are trapped in Japan, never to see American shores, while companies like Square Enix evolve from RPG powerhouses into phone-game factories.

So as we head into 2013, let's take a look back at the year in JRPGs. (Gaming)
