The first true RPG coming out is Abyss, right?

Anything I can play from the eShop that is a true RPG? I looked at a few of them but they all seem to be action/rpgs which are just glorified hack n slash.

Anything with turned based combat, exp, and stats and stuff. I know it won't be flashy but I need something to tide me over.

Abyss is an amazing game. Playing it right now.

There's a DS game called Golden Sun Dark Dawn. It's an RPG with magic(called Psynergy) and creatures called Djinn you unleash and summon in battle.

It's turn-based, has items, exp, level-ups, items that boost stats, etc.
Please sign my petition to have all 3DS games able to save to SD card:

Devil Survivor Overclocked is an SRPG, just as good. Or you could get one of the many many many great DS turn based RPGs such as any Dragon Quest, Radiant Historia, Pokemon, Sands of Destruction, Strang Journey, etc.

I highly recommend Devil Survivor Overclocked.

Those are all great choices but if you are a true pro sink your teeth into Etrian Odyssey (or better yet, The Dark Spire)

well crstal monsters is probally the only rpg on eshop thats turn based and for a pokemon clone it's really good radaint historia and and any of the dragon quest games on ds(i 5 and 9 are the best unless you count joker which is fun but not as good as dragon warrior monsters)
