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.
Well, we have got quite a bit lined up for this week in regards to JRPGs and JRPG influenced games. Then again, there is always a sizable about of new stuff available. And to think some say that JRPGs are dead.
Anyway, within the last week, we have seen the release of Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception (PS4/Vita), Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (PS4), Acaratus (Steam), and Disgaea 5 Complete (Switch). So today is looking especially good for SRPG releases.
Since this is the first time I have posted this here, I may as well explain just what JRPG Update is. The idea is to gather up all JRPG related news that I could and compile it into one place. I usually intend for this to be a weekly update, but this one will contain everything that happened between now and the last JRPG update (which was on my DevianArt account). I didn’t get around to this update for a while since I only recently completed my classes and now have the free time for it. Also one will notice that most sources are from Gematsu. That is because they tend to be the place where one can find news related to Japanese games the easiest, but I will try and look into additional sources in the future for the subject of indie titles or even more niche stuff like eroge.
