The main 3 I can think of is Final Fantasy VII R. Trials of Mana. Xenoblade Definitive Edition. If there is more feel free to discuss. (Persona 5 R is not a remake or Reboot. Just a re-release with new content so doesn't count)
I will give my thoughts briefly on the main 3.
Starting with Trials of Mana.
I quite enjoyed this game. It's a remake of a SNES game. It mainly just feels like a SNES game in 3D. Some may see that as a negative. For me I love it. The simpler game adds to the charm. In some ways, it feels like an older Ys game. Fast-paced action RPG with big bosses. It just keeps going and rarely slows down. The music is nice. I like the colorful visuals. It's just charming, simple, and fun.
Final Fantasy VIIR.
I love the original FF7. Not my top FF game but it's up there. I was worried when they announced a remake. I didn't trust Nomura as honestly, I hate him. His art is shit. His stories are shit. Combat systems are shit. Kingdom Hearts can eat shit. One exception is TWEWY. Sad to say all my fears were confirmed and then some. They diced the game up and this reboot will never be finished. Turned it into Kingdom Hearts BS by reworking the story. It's too self-referential now. A lot of it felt like padding on side quests. The UE4 is not doing well. Models look great but often textures do not load in. NPCs have no style to them. Just can be plucked from any game. Remind me of how cookie cutter they are in open-world games. Total letdown. The one positive is the music. It's gorgeous.
Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Editon.
It lives up to the name. It's a remake with the full game. It had 20 extra hours of story. It has a ton of QOL improvements to possibly the best RPG in the last 15 years. One of the best. They made very minor changes to further connect it to other games. Nothing over the top just subtle things. The story is as good as ever. The depth of gameplay like any of these games is massive. Sometimes almost too complex but once you learn them it's very rewarding. Making Colony 6 quest easy to track made a world of difference. That is one of the most tedious but so rewarding town-building quests in any RPG ever. It takes till near end game to do it but it's so worth it. The remade music which was already fantastic has extra layers to it making it even better. They made one of the best games ever even better and gave us 20 extra hours of the story for free.
I feel Xenoblade DE is the Best Remake of 202 for a JRPG so far and my favorite.
