Vita Owners I need Your Help! What Turned-Based RPGs Are on the System?

What is a weeb rpg?

Around the Network

Can you maybe give some recent examples of games that fit the criteria you describe?

I'm struggling because you say Persona is too anime for you but I want to know how far that extends.  For example, are games like Suikoden and Wild ARMs too anime for you?  Both are definitely inspired by anime in their characters and plot.

Aside from that, Japanese games make up the majority of the system's library these days, and Japanese games are invariably anime-inspired these days because that's what sells, so maybe this isn't the console for you.

You'd also be depriving yourself of some fantastic games just because of aesthetics, but that's up to you I guess.

Nevertheless, here's a few suggestions that definitely aren't anything close to anime:

- Child of Light

= Dragon Fantasy Books 1 & 2

- Final Fantasy X HD

- Frozen Synapse Prime

- Natural Doctrine

- Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines

- Rainbow Moon (sequel Rainbow Skies is also coming to Vita next year)


All the above are turn-based and contain RPG elements.

Also keep an eye out for upcoming games:

- Banner Saga

- Cosmic Star Heroine

- God Wars

- Project Setsuna

- Stranger of Sword City

- World of Final Fantasy

- YIIK: A Postmodern RPG

I know you just stated no anime like games but Persona 4 Golden is an amazing game past the anime artsyle.

That's quite the list, nice work. I just want to point this one out. It looks fantastic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xwRduJKJwc

(this is a bit of an old thread)

you don't like anime-ish RPG's on the vita?

does that sentence even make sense? lol

I really don't have a suggestion for you...every RPG I own has a anime styled art.

Persona 4: Golden is like THE reason to own a Vita. It's a sin not to own it just based on how it looks.

Also Trails of Cold Steel just came out. You might like that

Rainbow Moon?

Vita misses one of the best RPG's- Pokemon

Though, it has a crapload of Final Fantasy games. You'd enjoy both either way



12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

I was going to suggest Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, but no "anime"....eh? Maybe Rainbow Moon?
