Gimme three of those on a cart, and I'd buy it for sure. 

Or the two games that came out in 2014 on PS3 on a single cart for Switch. 

Unfortunately, I've read on a Nintendo news site that the Arland trilogy on Switch will be digital-only in America and Europe. I don't take that as confirmation just yet, but it's not looking good.

By the way, I like how the original post doesn't mention Final Fantasy. You have good taste.

I learned the hard way years ago that the original Final Fantasy for the NES is terrible. :P

Edit: Wait, did you mean any and all Final Fantasies? FF6, 7, 8, and 9 are classics!

The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true.

Best place for the JRPG GAMER. Also known as "Paradise."

But seriously I've been loving it, being able to play these games on the go is a much bigger plus than I would have expected at first. I recently went on vacation while playing Valkyria Chronicles I...and realized just how much I would have liked to take it with me. Getting IV on Switch wasn't even a question when it was confirmed.

Which gives it a strong reason to get over the XB1, as XB1 rarely gets those games.

It will be the only console that will have a portability feature soon. It is only a matter of time Japanese devs to start porting everything on it + making new games on it.

Not true. Ps4 has remote play that works with android phones. And every jrpg won't be ported to it and made for it. Ps4 will have a lot the switch won't get. 



The Switch was always going to take the JRPG crown from the 3DS. It was only a matter of time. The 3DS had to compete with the Vita in Japan for all those JRPGs. Now that Nintendo has a monopoly on the handheld market (while having no competition in Japan) it will sweep up the rest of the JRPGs sooner or later. It is only a matter of time.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Hope it's not too late but we already know the next Etrian Odyssey will be coming to Switch also.

Was Digimon Survive in the list too ?

Also, we'll probably end up with a few more gems from Monolith Soft and Division 11 (Bravely Team + Octopath) by the end. Atlus and Level 5 will also end up as fierce supporter.

"JRPGS and SRPGS"

I miss the 90's when they were just called "RPG's"... The need to over complicate or over classify genre's makes me wanna bang my head on a desk. An RPG is an RPG - regardless of where it was developed or it's sub-genre. (ARPG, MMO RPG, ORPG, blah blah blah blah blah....)



Hm I don't know. Still seems like the 3DS was better and definitely the DS as well. We're too early in the consoles life to tell but I think the DS will probably still be the king of portable RPG consoles when all is said and done.

It is like Cartoon and Animes. 

 

People don't call American Cartoons Animes. 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

While I'd like to agree with that statement, its severe lack of many small to medium JRPGs still makes me reticent to give the Switch the JRPG crown. The 3DS and Vita had way more of those, even if they weren't major titles like those above.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
