JRPG Update logo

It has been a while hasn’t it? Well, here it is, the return of JRPG Update. As I have stated in my Update of JRPG Update, updates will new be split into two separate subseries focused on professional releases and indie titles respectively.¬† They are also going to be monthly instead of weekly, as it was way too taxing to do so weekly and it got in the way of my regular content. Additionally, I am only embedding trailers that are in English now as to reduce the lag that greatly obstructs progress during editing. If you want to see the Japanese trailers then click the links provided.

Anyway, starting the JRPG releases since last update, we have seen the release of Xenoblade Chronciles 2 (Switch), Tokyo Xanadu eX (PS4/PC), Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope – 4K & Full HD Remaster (PS4/PC), Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis (PS4/XBox One), Romancing SaGa 2 (PS4/Vita/Xbox One/Switch/PC), World of Final Fantasy (PC), Omega Quintet (PC), Elminage Original: Priestess of Darkness and The Ring of the Gods (PC), and Yodanji (Switch/PC)

Anyway, now for the news.

The Death and Return of JRPG Update

JRPG Update is back folks… sorta. In order to make things easier on myself, I decided that some revisions needed to be made to how I would handle things, simply because I was overloaded the way that JRPG Update worked before. I tried to post weekly updates by covering as much JRPG related information as I could, even things that seemed insignificant. As such, I am deciding to do some vetting for the content that I cover and will try to avoid posting redundant news such as “such and such has new screen shots” or “details have been given about the shape of the hair of the NPC off to the top right corner in the second house in the games 13th town.” Also, updates will be posted monthly as opposed to weekly so I have time to actually work on other content.

Well this week’s update was hell to put together. It turns out that these pages lag horribly when there are too many embedded videos. As such, I am unable to fully edit this article and some things will be missing, such as a few pics, , links, and the updated release chart.However, I did introduce a new segment called “discoveries,” which is where I post about new games I discovered the existence of that were released his year. This has involved looking through Steam, Nutaku, DLSite, and Itch.Io (although I found nothing on the latter most because they all appear to be RPG Maker.

So, this week, we have seen the release of God Wars: Future Past (PS4/Vita, June 20th) and Ever Oasis (3DS, June 23rd). I have also decided to try out a new format for JRPG Update, and one will noticed most of the pictures have already been used. That is partially to save time for myself given how much time I spent editing in Amazon Associates links, meaning I make a small amount of money any time someone clicks one of these links and proceeds to buy something from Amazon.
