Top 5 Upcoming JRPG’s in 2017 for the PS4

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

On the PlayStation 4, we’ve already been given the opportunity to play wonderful 2017 JRPG titles, such as Kingdom Hearts 2.8 to Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 HD Remix, Tales of Berseria, and the two massive hits NieR: Automata and Persona 5.

Today I want to inform the PlayStation Nation about 5 upcoming JRPG’s which I personally recommend, for PlayStation fans that favor this genre and should be looking out for. Now I know there are a few games that could also list such as Valkyria Revolution, Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon, or Grand Blue Fantasy however, I have compiled a list of JRPG’s that I’m mostly anticipating and through my opinion, hopefully you can share or understand the excitement.

Summon Night 6-WUPS

1.Summon Night 6: Lost Borders- 6/23/17 (PS4, PS Vita)

At first glance Summon Night 6: Lost Borders just looks gorgeous. The art style of this JRPG really stands out to capture the attention of gamers, but enough about the looks lets talk about mechanics. Summon Night 6: Lost Borders offers a fully 3-D battle system which allows “Chain Attacks” that happen automatically when surrounding an enemy with two or more party members. In this situation, each party member can attack an enemy without risking a counterattack. With summoning being a hallmark of the franchise, party members can team up for a “Summon Burst” attack that can have a devastating magical strike to take down some of the toughest enemies. The game features dozen of endings, which can have sub-endings that can change depending on a players interaction with other characters. As a thank you to the fans of the series, Summon Night 6: Lost Borders will be fully localized with English voice overs. All key events will the be voiced. As a future new comer to this series, I can’t wait to play this JRPG.

Tokyo Xanadu EX+

2.Tokyo Xanadu, Tokyo Xanadu EX+- 6/30/17 (PS Vita) Late 2017 (PS4, Steam)

Tokyo Xanadu has been out for a long time in Japan and North America will finally be able to get their hands of this stylish dungeon exploring action JRPG, with similar elements from the Persona series of JRPG’s. Tokyo Xanadu will release on the PlayStation Vita on June 30th with Aksys Games doing the English translation and Tokyo Xanadu EX+ for the PS4 and Steam port releasing later this year. Falcom announced the PS4 version (Tokyo Xanadu EX+) will improve on HD graphics and frame rate, with additional story content that will come in the form of extra side story and post-game content. There is still a lot of mystery when it comes to the game for me however, it was developed by Nihon Falcom and having a likeness to the Persona series. My interest for this game is peaking at a all time high.

FF12 ZA

3.Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age- 7/11/17 (PS4)

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age made it to this list just because I didn’t complete this game during the PS2 era. It’s a long story with college friends and roommates. However, with this game making a comeback on the PS4 with great system features like suspend and resume, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, will be completed. One of my favorite things in FFXII is the Gambit system which is one of the most unique AI systems in a Final Fantasy game, due to how deep you can customize each AI action. With modern advancements, including reconstructed battle design and a revamped job system. Fans will be eager to dive back into the world of Ivalice. So who’s going for that platinum trophy?

Ni No Kuni 2

4.Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom- TBA 2017 (PS4)

Last generation, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch in my humble opinion is the best JRPG for the PS3. The story, characters, and battle system was top notch. We also can’t leave out the animated sequences which were crafted by Studio Ghibli, that left you with a high production level feeling as if you were watching an animated movie. I truly adored Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and can’t wait to see how the sequel Ni No Kuni: Revenant Kingdom pans out. There some noticeable changes with the upcoming sequel, like moving away from using and caring for you Familiars. In Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom players will be using the tiny spirit creatures called Higgledies to help you fight and explore within the world of Ni No Kuni. Ys VIII Wups

5.Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana- Fall 2017 (PS4, Windows)

I am super excited to play as Adol once again in a brand new adventure. After being shipwrecked and stranded on a cursed island, Adol begins to have dreams of a mysterious blue-haired maiden. Players must join Adol as he discover the secrets of this island, while learning the back story of the mysterious blue-haired maiden Dana through her unique gameplay sections.

So what do you think? Was any of these games on your radar of JRPG’s for 2107 you wanted to play? If not let me know in the comments your top 5 2017 JRPG’s.

Horzion: Zero Dawn-Meet The Machines

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Horizon: Zero Dawn launches on February 28th, 2017 and the release date almost upon us. Guerrilla Games took the time to release videos introducing some of the machines we will encounter within Horizon: Zero Dawn. By the look of things Aloy will have numerous of difficult challenges awaiting her.

Thunderjaw:

The combat-class Thunderjaw is one of the deadliest machines encountered in Horizon Zero Dawn. A formidable beast equipped with cannons, disc launchers and a mouth laser, its powerful ranged attacks will quickly cut down any hunter foolish enough to alert it. Space permitting, it can also unleash with a devastating range of melee attacks such as charges and tail swipes.

Snapmaw:

An acquisition-class machine, the Snapmaw is frequently found basking in or near bodies of water, where it gathers valuable minerals from the sediment. It can move with surprising ferocity when alerted, lashing out with an array of melee attacks that include powerful lunge bites and tail swipes. For ranged attacks, it fires off cryo mortars that freeze the target on impact.

Stormbird:

Soaring through the sky at high altitude, the fearsome Stormbird is a combat-class machine that can swoop down and attack its prey with tremendous force. It is just as dangerous on land as it is in the air, with a variety of swift and powerful attacks that range from wing blasts to claw slashes. Its enormous metal wings are capable of collecting and discharging the electricity in the air.

Behemoth:

The Behemoth is a huge, rugged transport-class machine that uses anti-gravity technology to transfer precious cargo from smaller acquisition-class machines into its stomach container. When provoked, it may charge at the enemy or use its anti-gravity unit to hurl heavy objects. It is also equipped with a set of grinding drills that allow it to grind and propel rock projectiles.

In my opinion: Horizon: Zero Dawn is shaping up to be a great game. Guerrilla Games and PlayStation are doing a wonderful job building hype and anticipation on their new venture to the Role Playing Game genre. The level of detail on these machines are jaw-dropping. I’m loving the diversity between the four machines we were introduced to. I’m most definitely up for the challenge and looking forward on taking on some of these ferocious machines. Are you up for the challenge to face them? Which machine is your favorite so far?
