And welcome to the other variation of JRPG Update that we currently hold. This series is meant to post a round up of news related to indie RPGs that are reminiscent of what are often considered JRPGs, regardless of the country where they were developed. Anyway, this one will be a bit different than JRPG Update Pro given that obscure indie titles tend to get far less coverage, so a lot of the news is basically “this game exists.” Anyway let’s get started.
Teaser trailer released for Rainbow Skies. Physical editions also announced for Rainbow Skies and Eastasia soft’s previous title Rainbow moon, both of which feature standard editions and limited editions.
Super Daryl Deluxe
Will be coming to PS4 and Steam in April 2018
Kickstarter relaunched for localization of turn based RPG/simulation hybrid Order Land.
Legrand Legacy Has been released on Steam and will release on PS4, XBox One, and Switch in Q1 2019.
Saturday Morning RPG
Saturday Morning RPG will be getting a release on the Switch in Spring 2018, and there will be a physical edition sold by Limited Run games on their website.
Mercenaries Saga Chronicles
Mercenaries Saga Chronicles will be released on the Nintendo Switch e-shop in February.
Yes I’m counting this one as a JRPG since it’s turn based and WRPGs are rarely turn based these days. Anyway it has been released on the Switch.
Action RPG Metroidvania game Feudal Ahoy is announced for PS4, XBox One, Switch, and Steam.
I decided I’m going to now include Metroidvanias regardless of whether there are technically RPG elements present. After all, one would still play them for the same reason as if there were RPG elements. I also decided I will now be including Zelda type games. Anyway, The Messenger is a retro inspired title that looks like a cross between Ninja Gaiden and Symphony of the Night as will be coming to PC and Consoles in 2018.
Treasure Adventure World
Treasure Adventure World, a remake of 2011’s Treasure Adventure Game, will be released on GOG february 17th.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
Development update has been put out and it is slated for release in the first half of 2018.

Succubus Nightmare 2 (NSFW)
As has its sequel, Succubus Nightmare 2.
Daughter of Essence
Demo for Daughter of Essence is up on Itch.io. Apparently this one is also an eroge, but it does not seem to be the type solely focused on sex. In fact, it looks pretty fucking awesome.
PSI Magic has been released on Itch.Io as well. It looks okay I guess.
Demo has been released for Haremon, another hentai RPG.
The Journey to Medulla
Demo has been released for The Journey to Medulla as well. I definitely like the premise of this one even if it isn’t to interesting graphically
Demo is available for Palasiel Quest as well. Nice aesthetic and a nice premise, this one looks interesting to me.

Doujin Touhou Action RPG The Disappearing of Gensokyo has been released on Steam.
