The RPG’s Are Coming!
It’s already half-way through 2015, man the year flew by so quick. It has been a good year for RPG’S with the release of Bloodborne and Witcher 3 (Which I’m still playing). While these games have done their job of keeping us busy, we still have some great games coming our way before the year is over. Below is are some hot RPG’S that I am looking forward to playing.
Fallout 4 will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 10, 2015
The last Fallout game I played was the third game. I spent a good hundred hours in the game without even completing the story. With open world games they tend to have so much content and side quest that I lose interest over time. Hopefully Fallout 4 will have some engaging content to keep us engaged throughout the whole story.
Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment
Release date: July 28, 2015 for PS4 and PS Vita
I just finished watching the anime and fell in love with the series, now there’s a full game coming out later this year. While I was watching the show I got a sudden urge to play anMMORPG. We will finally be able to battle along side Asuna while playing as our bad ass hero Kirito. Stay tuned for more updates on the action RPG Sword Art Online
Tales of Zestiria
Release date: PS4 October 20, 2015
I am a huge Tales fan, I have played many of their titles starting with Tales of Destiny 2 (Omega Demon Chaos). I have always been a fan of their real-time battle system. The first game to introduce me to a real-time battle system was Star Ocean 2 but the tales game took the system and never looked back. This action RPG is exclusive to PS4, it seems Sony is trying to reclaim its title as the king of RPG’s gaming console which it lost in the past console wars. Tales of Zestiria drops later on this year, keep an eye out for it.
Disgaea 5: Alliance of vengeance
Release date: PS4 October 6, 2015
The Disgaea series is a comedic dark themed SRPG. The series is known for its challenging dungeons and high reply value. In the past I have put hundred of hours into these games. If you enjoy grinding for extremely powerful items and the chance to create powerful custom characters I would pick this game up when it comes out in October. For more information check out my post on Disgaea 5.
Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and The Blight Below
Release date: PS4 October 13, 2015
Dragon Quest Heroes abandons the old turn based systems of the past for a new MMORPG style combat system. I’m hoping this give the game a more action packed experience. I am a fan of the art style of Dragon Quest, it reminds me a lot of Dragon Ball Z. Especially when characters transform and their hair turns a different color and spikes up. The creators took a different approach with the game by making it more open world like. I applaud them for being bold with the direction of the game. We will have to wait and see if their efforts paid off.
Release date: TBA 2015 for PS4, PS3
Last but not least Persona 5 is stepping onto the scene later on this year. Exactly when? We don’t have an answer but hopefully some more information get released soon. Returning from the pervious Persona games are the crazy animation style and the turn based battle system. Developers have said they are making changes to the game to make it more dynamic! We’ll have to wait and see how this JRPG turns out. Persona 5 is also coming out on the PS3, so last gen gamers still get the opportunity to enjoy this gem when it releases.
