When it comes to JRPGs, fans in the west sometimes get left out. A lot of JRPGs release exclusively in Japan, and hopefully make their way to us in the future. If we do, in fact, get a hold of them, they can still fly under the radar because of the more popular choices like… Continue reading 5 JRPGs That You (Probably) Might Not Have Played
