Most Anticipated JRPG Releases of 2023

Based on popularity, the most anticipated JRPGs of 2023 include Final Fantasy XVI, Forspoken, and Fire Emblem Engage.

I’m personally looking forward to Ys X: Nordics, Octopath Traveler II, Like a Dragon: Ishin!, and Atelier Ryza 3.

Of course, there will be many other JRPGs releasing in 2023, and I’ve compiled everything confirmed so far, as well as soft confirmations that are likely but still TBD.

Every JRPG Releasing in 2023

January

January always tends to be packed with new JRPG releases, and 2023 is no different.

The big one that’s got a lot of folks talking is Forspoken, which releases on January 24, 2023 for the PS5 and PC. This action JRPG has a similar feel to Final Fantasy XV, and a demo is currently available on the PlayStation Store.

Of course, equally huge is Fire Emblem Engage, which releases January 20, 2023 on the Switch. If you put hundreds of hours into The Three Houses, I feel for you.

One Piece Odyssey, releasing January 12, 2023, also looks to be a sure hit with fans of the long running anime and manga series.

Additionally, we are getting Tales of Symphonia Remastered in February, while it looks like Atelier Ryza 3 was pushed back to March.
