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, or the next episode of the Final Fantasy VII Remake.
