Upcoming JRPGs in the year 2022 include everything from ports and remasters to major sequels and new IPs.
I maintain this list on a daily basis, making it the most up to date JRPG release calendar for 2022.
This calendar concerns North American release dates only.
See previous years of JRPG releases to check what you might have missed:
The creators of the Suikoden series are releasing their successful Kickstarter game, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, in 2022.
Triangle Strategy is also coming out in 2022, and it’s giving off serious Final Fantasy Tactics vibes.
Director of the Dark Souls series is releasing his next game, Elden Ring, with Game of Thrones author, George R.R. Martin contributing to the lore!
What else might 2022 have in store for JRPGs?
I’m personally looking forward to Rune Factory 5 and hopefully either a Final Fantasy XVI release (recently announced it will be released Summer 2023), or the next episode of the Final Fantasy VII Remake (just recently announced this will be coming 2023 under the title Final Fantasy VII Rebirth).
Here are all the JRPGs releasing in 2022:
Nintendo’s platform gets a big release with the new open world Pokemon game, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, on January 28th, 2022.
Monster Hunter Rise also comes to PC which will be a big upgrade performance wise over the Switch version.
Atelier Ryza isn’t the only one getting the sequel treatment, it so happens.
Gust is developing Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream and it will release February 25th, 2022.
After a recently announced delay, Elden Ring now releases February 25th, 2022 on consoles and PC.
March 2022 is shaping up to be a big month for JRPGs with both Triangle Strategy and Rune Factory 5 landing on the Switch.
