    J-RPG's are never going to be as popular on the Xbox as they are on PlayStation however they'll never die out as there's a massive fanbase for that type of game.

    I'm not sure citing a bunch of remastered rpgs or re releases qualifies as breathing new life into a genre.
    Just what I thought, not really a good way to support an argument - should've picked other titles. However, those remasters/re-releases are most likely the ones I'll pick up and play.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    We're starting to see quite a bit of RPGs in general now. JRPGs in particular aren't quite so plentiful, but we are seeing them on the rise on xbox somewhat suddenly.

    I've noticed since the release of the 1x, we're seeing a rise. As for remasters, they were already released on the ps4, it's just now that we're getting them too.
