The Most Anticipated JRPGs of 2022

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:
