Catch up on some recently released Japanese RPGs!

Whether you call it fate or luck, sometimes a bunch of games from the same genre come out at around the same time. Amazingly, each of the following JRPGs came out in the first few months of 2022!

Some of these JRPGs are turn-based, some are bit more action-y, and some are all about strategy. However, all of them contain the colorful stories and characters that JRPGs are known for (and hairstyles…there are many colorful hairstyles as well…).

We hope you enjoy!
