Xenoblade Chronicles was one of, if not the largest, JRPG from the Wii era. The game has quite possibly one of the strongest written and voiced stories in gaming, with twists and turns that keep coming throughout a massive, 100-hour playthrough.
The gameplay is quick and strategic and most importantly, the title is being entirely remastered with updated visuals. Xenoblade Chronicles X and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 followed this masterpiece of storytelling, but neither quite scratched the itch left by the first game. If you're a fan of JRPGs, this is THE JRPG to look out for in 2020.
Whether you're new to RPGs or a seasoned veteran, 2020 looks to be the year to double, triple, or quadruple dip on these new titles. It's likely that more RPGs will be announced in 2020, and with indie games being rereleased every month, this list is certainly not all-encompassing, but we hope it will get you started.
