JRPG Report Episode 164 - Monster Hunter Stories 2 Looks Amazing
After a week "off" I'm back to tell you all about the stories you may have missed. We got a great look at Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin in its third trailer. Most importantly I learned it has a turn based battle system in addition to its awesome anime look. We also got a good look at the combat for Scarlet Nexus in two new videos. Its shaping up to be a big summer JRPG hit. Both those stories plus many smaller ones in this packed episode. Thanks for listening!!

JRPG Report Episode 163 - PC JRPG Talk with Dalton
I'm out of the office this week, enjoying a brief anniversary trip. So Dalton and myself recorded a fun conversation about the state of PC gaming in regards to JRPGs. We focus on Edge of Eternity, a promising JRPG that's been in early access for years but releasing in full in June and later this year for consoles. He's played the game for a few hours and will give his impressions. We also chat about his obcession with the Neptunia series and the upcoming ninja crossover action rpg game. Of course I take the chance to cry about Persona 4 Golden being on PC and not PS4 and Switch. I hope you enjoy this fun show and I'll be back with the news next week!

Plus all the other news of the week in this huge over an hour podcast. Many thank to Dalton for dropping by.

JRPG Report Episode 140 - Falcom and Atlus Future Plans
I was this close to calling off this week's show. Until 2 days ago, there simply wasn't enough news to record. But here we are and it's a fun one. Sega and Falcom released some plans for 2021 so we'll talk about them and what it means beyond next year. Atelier Ryza 2 had some good bits of info as well. Of course next gen systems from Playstation and Xbox hit this week, but we're a JRPG podcast so not much to speak of yet with them. Lots of other fun topics and games discussed as well.

Just 5 days until the epic End of Sage for the Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV hits PS4 owner's hands in the US. The wait has been forever for this end of a huge story arc. So I hype it up one last time! I'll give a full report next week. It seems the delay for US owners of the collector's edition won't happen now (sorry Europe), so all is well here. We had some new images and info about Disgaea 6, physical copies of classic Final Fantasy titles, and there won't be a physical version of PS5 Atelier Ryza 2.

JRPG Report Episode 134 - Tokyo Game Show 2020 Part 2
TGS 2020 has come and gone. It was an awesome show this year even with being 100% online. We had tons of great new trailers to view and fun presentations. No big announcements but I didn't expect any either. Atelier Ryza 2 has announced a PS5 version in addition to PS4 and Switch. And owners of the PS4 version can upgrade for free to the PS5 version. We saw the first gameplay for Disgaea 6, leaving some online very displeased. The switch to 3D has some worried to say the least. Lots of other fun stories from TGS too. Dalton gives us his review for Persona 4: Golden at the end.

JRPG Report Episode 132 - Final Fantasy XVI Revealed for PS5
The Playstation 5 dropped two bombs yesterday during its Showcase. Lastly was the price and release date. But they opened the show with Final Fantasy XVI, confirming its existence with a 4 minute trailer. Hear all my thoughts good and bad about this PS5 exclusive game. The next day during the Nintendo Direct Mini, we were treated with the reveal of Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny. I'll give you all the details we know so far about this game. We were then treated to two new Monster Hunter titles for the Switch as well as Rune Factory 5. All that in just the first half of the show! It's been a busy past 24 hours to say the least. The second half is full of great stories too. And I started playing a game last night that truly blurs the line of what a JRPG is or isnt. Thanks for listening. TGS is next week!

Heavy on action but in a slick looking anime fashion, we got our first look at the game. We also received a new story trailer for this fall Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV.

It's finally here. After 23 years and nearly 7 years since it's announcement, the world is now playing Final Fantasy VII Remake. Does it live up to the hype? I can only answer with my thoughts after almost 6 hours of playing it. The news of the week (not much this podcast) starts things off. Then after the break I'll give my reactions and impressions of the game. I hope you all are enjoying it as well. Thanks for listening! Leave us a review on Apple or your favorite listening place.

JRPG Report Sunday Special Episode 12 - Trails of the Beginning: Everything We Know So Far
*Potential Spoilers in this podcast* This has been a hard game to report on. I wanted to devote a Sunday Special to it because of the potential spoilers involved. Taking place after the events of Cold Steel IV, any research into this game ruins key outcomes of that series. So I've taken the brunt of it and tried to gather all info without ruining anything. You'll hear the words after the events of Cold Steel IV or I can't say this part a lot. But I feel I have a much better understanding of the game now, and hope you will too after listening. As always thanks for tuning in each week.  Leave us a review on Apple or your favorite listening place.

JRPG Report Episode 107 - Falcom's Plans in the West
The huge worldwide release of Final Fantasy VII Remake is a mere 2 days away. But all is not well with delivery backups from Amazon. I'll let loose a little steam as my copy has been delayed until April 14. Square Enix did release a final trailer for the game (it shows a lot!) as well as some images in a final media dump. We'll have much more on the game with my initial impressions in next week's podcast. The biggest news I wanted to share came from a recent interview with Falcom President Kondo. He talked about the growth of the series, the newest game Hajimari no Kiseki, and the company's new fans in the west. News about Y's IX was also in there along with localization of the PS4's Crossbell games. Plus more.

JRPG Report Sunday Special Episode 11 - A Royal Chat with Dalton about Persona 5 Royal
Another Sunday is here and it's completely different again. After looking back at the Persona series last week, we discuss all the changes in Persona 5 Royal. Having played it for a few days now, I invite Dalton Bigshoots a long listener of the podcast and friend, to let us know what he has seen. I played it for about 2 hours so I have a few thoughts too. I hope you enjoy this fun conversation with two Persona and JRPG nerds.

JRPG Report Episode 106 - Trails of Cold Steel IV Finally Gets a Release Date in the West
Please don't be an April Fool's joke! We learned today on April 1 that Trails of Cold Steel IV will launch in the west this Fall 2020. The Switch and PC version in 2021. I can hardly contain my excitement as we've been waiting a long time on this announcement. In a huge JRPG week that saw the release of Persona 5 Royal, we had tons big announcements. Xenoblade Chronicles got a May 29 release date during the latest Nintendo Direct. I'm eagerly awaiting that game as well with my love of XC2 knowing no bounds. And I was wrong in Episode 105. It was the end of Mary Skelter, not Neptunia. I'll tell you about Mary Skelter Finale as well as many more stories in one of our best podcasts yet!

JRPG Report Episode 105 - The End of Neptunia?
No big lead stories this week. I finish up my thoughts on the Trials of Mana demo and cover a range of games from Genshin Impact to Sword Art Online to Sakura Wars. Plus a few more too. But the most surprising news may come on March 28 in a few days. Complile Heart's President has hinted at the ending of its "popular numbered series" to coincide with the end of Dengeki Playstation magazine in Japan. Is this the end of Neptunia? I think not as I talk about it in the podcast. You'll have to tune in next week for more info! Leave us a review on Apple or your favorite listening place.

It was truly a week without a headliner for Episode 101. I chose to focus on a Square Enix statement saying development of a PS5 or Xbox Series X specific game was still a long ways off. It appears most games will be up-res versions of currents systems. So when will we see a truly next game JRPG like FF XVI or DQ XII? Lord only knows.

Episodes on back to back days? Love is surely in the air. I just could not wait to give my thoughts on the amazing FFVII Remake Opening movie. Head over to the Facebook page if you still haven't seen it. But Square Enix wasn't the only company feeling the love today. Atlus released it third and final movie for Persona 5 Scramble the Phantom Strikers. With just a week until its Japanese launch, they showed a lot of action and some terrifying bosses. Plus Atelier Ryza hit a big sales number along with a few other stories. I give my thoughts on why after 20 hours, Ryza is by far the best in the series and worthy of a pickup. Thanks for listening.

JRPG Report Episode 78 - TGS 2019 Part II
Sequels are never better than the original right? Well this may be the exception to the rule. Part II of our Tokyo Game Show 2019 special is epic. I breakdown all the greatness of the Final Fantasy VII Remake gameplay, along with some things you may have missed. And I'll give my thoughts on the new Classic mode. Tales of Arise was there with a new trailer and it looks more "Tales of" which is very good. Plus a slew of smaller stories. Thanks so much for listening each week!

JRPG Report Episode 65 - Post E3 of JRPG Remake
We had a technical issue with the original upload so here it is again! Working for a nice change. If you already downloading the original file, delete it as the first part has no sound. Sound apparently is important to a podcast who knew? In Episode 65 we discuss all things Tales of Arise, FFVII Remake and some Trails of Cold Steel III new changes. All that and so much more in a week I didn't think we would even have enough material for a podcast. Thanks for bearing with our problems.
