 JRPG Report Episode 137 - Trails of Cold Steel IV Hype | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 2388

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. I rant about that last story and its implications at the end of the show. Thanks so much for listening!

 JRPG Report Episode 134 - Tokyo Game Show 2020 Part 2 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 2954

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. He'll be back Sunday for a fun conversation!  Please consider funding the show via Patreon or the Anchor link at the bottom of the description.

 JRPG Report Episode 132 - Final Fantasy XVI Revealed for PS5 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 2873

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!

 JRPG Report Episode 131 - Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory Details; Series Future | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 2597

With less than two weeks until Tokyo Game Show 2020, the news is light this week. As it will be next week I'd guess. So we lead with details about Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory. I know its not a JRPG but it is a shoot off of a super popular one. And like I said there isn't a ton to talk about. We did learn a bit about the upcoming 20th anniversary of Kingdom Hearts in 2022 and the series future plans. I talk about a few other small stories and have a great listener review from Michael for Banner of the Maid. Thanks for listening! No Sunday Special this week sorry.
