2019 is a big year for JRPG releases

Among the upcoming JRPG releases for 2019 are none other than Kingdom Hearts 3, Code Vein, and Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition.



I’m most excited for Tales of Vesperia because I missed the boat when it was an exclusive on the Xbox 360.

January marks a huge starting month for JRPGs in 2019. We get both Kingdom Hearts 3 and Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition.
