The RPGs are flooding in now.

Lets face it 3DS was barren as far as RPGs go. Its gotten better but still not much with just

Paper mario sticker star
Crimson shroud
Denpa men they came by wave
Tales of the abyss
Shin megami tensei Devil survivor overclocked
Kingdom hearts dream drop distance

These RPGs

But this his year we have

Fire emblem awakening
Pokemon mystery dungeon: Gates to infinity
Pokemon X/Y
Shin megami tensei: Devil summoner soul hackers
Project X zone
Denpa men 2
Rune factory 4
Etrain oddessey IV
Monster hunter 3 ultimate
KAIO King of the pirates

Likely to be localized this year

Dragon quest monsters: Terry wonderland 3D
Bravely default flying fairy

With future titles like

Shin megami tensei IV
Monster hunter 4
Unchained blades EXXIV
Yokai watch
Dragon quest VII

Its looking good for RPGs on 3DS.

good post.

If you look at the DS & PSP they really both didn't get a bunch of RPG's until years 2-3.

Then in year 4-6 they had a second bigger boost in RPG's.


I'm guessing 2014 is going to be the first year to "WOW" us in terms of game play quality.

It's good we are getting RPGs but at this point you'll never convince me that I'll get Terry's Wonderland.

I refuse to hope for it. Having that hope shattered a second time would be devastating.

Isn't it a ARPG?

Not really. It's bit hard to characterize. There's no actual leveling up in the traditional sense. It's all about the gear and the skills.

Funny that it is categorized as one on GameFaqs.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is an Action Role-Playing game, developed and published by Capcom, scheduled to be released in 2013.

GameFAQs used to classify Ocarina of Time as an "Adventure/RPG" before people started debating it...
Frankly...

In MH you're entirely dependant on the items and equipment you bring/use.
Your character doesn't gets stronger on its own.
Your health can only be increased temporalily.
Rank only exists for bragging rights and unlocking quests/gear.
Quests haven't been a RPG-only thing in ages.
The game is entirely skill-based.

There is more growth in Link from beginning to the end of a Zelda than in a MH character if you take out the equippable stuff... And Zelda isn't a RPG as we all know it.

How did XSEED get Rune Factory I was thinking? Isn't Natsume the one that usually publishes that?

I think Monster Hunter fits in that sort of fantasy gathering/crafting simulator niche... sort of like an action Harvest Moon. It's one of those non-genre games...
