Do you think we'll see more 2D RPG games like in the PSP & DS?

Seeing how the Vita is a graphical beast, I'm not sure if the Devs are gonna waste the time making 2D games while they could make ones almost as beautiful as the PS3 games.

So far, I only know of Disgaea 3 being in 2D.

What do you guys think?

I don't consider 2D a waste of time.

I meant waste of potential.

I don't consider 2D a waste of potential either.

Most RPGs have an overhead view not sidescrolling like a platformer, what difference does 3D make over 2D? Unless you prefer cinematic cutscenes over "talking artwork". Even a 3D RPG like Rune Factory has those.

Some companies like 2D such as Vanillaware and Nippon Ichi. Nothing wrong with it at all, there's far more companies that do make 3D graphics.

I actually prefer 2d rpgs with good artwork sprites or 3d sprites wih fixed 2d backgrounds like in ff7

3D isn't the natural successor to 2D contrary to popular belief. I wouldn't say Super Mario 64 had better graphics than Prinny, just because one's in 3D and another is in 2D. I, along with alot of people, would rather have highly detailed sprites and 2D enviroments over 3D in many cases.

I also enjoy 2D RPG games like Lunar, Disgaea, Star Ocean,... I hope they continue to make them on the Vita.

Well Dragons Crown is a 2D sidescrolling action RPG in a way. Rayman is beautiful and I hope it gets ported to Vita. So I do hope we do still see some 2D rpgs, platformers, and the like.
