2017 JRPG Release Dates

Last Updated on February 12, 2023 by Zachary Brictson

All Japanese RPG Release Dates in 2017

The year of 2017 JRPG releases is led by vigilante highschool students, a smoking hot blindfolded android, and a samurai who dies frequently. Find release dates for these and many more JRPGs coming out in 2017 using the schedule below. Be sure to check back as the page will be constantly updated.

The year starts strong with releases of JRPGs such as Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, Tales of Berseria, and Nioh. The Nintendo Switch lands soon after, bringing a port of I Am Setsuna in early March. It will also raise the question of whether or not Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a JRPG. This argument can ruin 2017 all by itself if not soon remedied by releases of Nier: Automata, Persona 5, and Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Age.
