All of that? I am sure Fire Emblem is a RPG that was made in Japan...so JRPG. The Western themes used in the game don't change that.


I'm pretty sure I bolded one specific part. I''ve never played Fire Emblem, and have no plans to ever so I can't comment on that

There have always been good Japanese RPGs. The problem is Final Fantasy. Final Fantasy is the flagship, and if Final Fantasy is bad it makes the general public perceive the genre as a whole negatively.

I have to agree.. JRPGs werent extinct, its mainly the NA crowd and the publishers who refuse to bring them over from Jp.

I feel I can't say this enough:

Localize Bravely Default and I'll be ecstatic.


I sure hope SE or someone will publish it in North America!

im glad you made another topic like this, the other 20 we've had in the last week just weren't cutting it.

Outside of handhelds, they practically have been. And Fire Emblem is a JRPG.

I like how people like to classify JRPG as some sort of genre now. I guess since the witcher 2 is story based and character based with a preset main character, it must be a JRPG.

And I guess cuz Fire Emblem values gameplay over story that it must be a WRPG.

I kind of wish they had been nonexistent for the last 7 years or so, because 98% of them have been absolute putrid garbage. Thank God I had such a huge backlog of PSX and PS2 RPGs to help me survive through this age of vomit-inducing JRPGs. Ni No Kuni and Xenoblade are great, at least.
