Switch is becoming quite the machine for JRPGs and SRPGs.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Switch is becoming quite the machine for JRPGs and SRPGs.

As expected. Something about RPG on handhelds are great!

Oooh nice an episode of List Wars: RPG Edition!



Signature goes here!

Updated the OP with more games people suggested. Am I missing anything else? I completely forgot about TWEWY and the Crystal Chronicles Remake.

Let's not turn this into a PS4 vs Switch list war. Both systems are must owns in my book. Even if we took out all the RPGs for Switch that were already on PS4, the selection would still be amazing for a system not even two years old.

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

It only took them 23 years to make up for it and right the ship after giving the F you to Square enix. Great to see them building a good
Looking catalogue.



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

Would look something like this:

Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna
Octopath Traveler
Labryinth of Refrain
Pokemon Let's Go
Pokemon Gen 8
Fire Emblem Three Houses
Grandia Remastered
Shin Megami Tensei 5
Town (Gamefreak)
TWEWY
Yakoi Watch
Golf Story

Not bad for a system not yet 2years old.

You said the crown, i though you mean the sales and the customers of all PS4 JRPGs because it seems not really the case. Also, PS4 came out since 2013, right? Let wait till 2022 to see how much JRPG it gets.

If one is going based on catalog and pure volume, the PC trumps both. It is something interesting that people here are neglecting. In the end it will always be about preference and not this console war BS that some users constantly make these threads out to be. 

I personally love the rise of SRPGs/Mid Tier JRPGs lately. I hope it continues. Whats awesome is while some games do not get localized in NA, they are getting released in Singapore and I can import them. Playing SD Gundam Generations lately on the PS4 and Octopath Traveler on the switch currently. 

Talking about quantity, smartphone also trumps both.

Yeah, enjoy phones with action RPG is not something i will recommend. Switch also will have a lot JRPG that ps4 won't have.

I was only making the point to show jrnation was wrong. The vita also does the remote play. It also works with the Xperia tablet so a screen similar in size to switch. But remember you can connect a dualshock controller to the devices making remote play actually really good.

 

Edit : i tried gta v on the go and it works really well. I also played bf4 online and actually got quite a few kills. It's quite a unique feature being able to play such powerful games on the go. 

Switch can be played anywhere, can your vita/table does the remote play anywhere? Also, you only need to buy a Switch to play game but you need to buy both ps4 and vita/table to do that. What is good about spending too much like that just for playing on the go?



First, why are people still treating the Switch as a Handheld when it's an Hybrid system ? Get on with it !

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

What? We do? Really? Can you give me a source please?

Here's the teaser :



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

It's starting to look pretty nice on the rpg front. And I think it's off to a better start than the 3DS, so that's promising.
I hope they bring Persona 5 to Switch as well. That game deserves to be played by more people. And I'm sure it would sell really well. Especially if it has extra content, like Persona 4: Golden.

Many of those are on or coming to Switch, FYI.

I'm curious what your thought process was here?
Should Jrpgfan not have listed the PS4 titles that are also on Switch? I'm asking because you didn't mention that most of the Switch games on the list he quoted are also on PS4.
If he had crossed them out, it would have looked like this:

Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna
Octopath Traveler
Pokemon Let's Go
Pokemon Gen 8
Fire Emblem Three Houses
Grandia Remastered
Shin Megami Tensei 5

If Jrpgfan had done that, or pointed out that "Most of those Switch games are also on PS4", then I would understand your comment.
But the way you replied, it looks like you're either not aware that most of the games on the Switch list were also on PS4, or that you only think the multi-platform aspect should be mentioned for one side of the list, and not the other. Or were you thinking something else?

Valkyria Chronicles: Remastered
Digimon Survive

I was going to say Persona Q2 as well, but then I remembered it's for 3DS.

An Xperia + ps4 can be bought for 400€ the price of a ps4 Pro. Really not much. And with mobile data on your phone you can play it anywhere.
