JRPG Blitz Continues With Last Rebellion In February
It always happens with each generation: JRPG fans have to wait a good long time before their favorite genre really gets going.
The PlayStation 3 launched way back at the end of 2006 and although we've seen a few decent JRPGs since then, 2010 may be the year for all the long-time fans out there. Not only are we going to get White Knight Chronicles in just a few weeks, Star Ocean: The Last Hope International in February, Resonance of Fate later this year, and Final Fantasy XIII in March, but now, there's another one in February for the US, according to Joystiq: Last Rebellion. Developed by Nippon Ichi, this one is reserved for the ardent, hardcore JRPG aficionado; someone who always enjoys the anime artistry, flashy, colorful, over-the-top cinematics and potentially irritating characters. Personally, I typically enjoy games like this but I always make a point of singling out the target demographic in my review: quite simply, if you're not part of that demographic, if you're not part of that relatively small audience who has played most JRPGs of the past few years, you probably won't be interested in something like Last Rebellion. Just being all honest and stuff.
Anyway, it's a good time to be a role-playing fan, isn't it?
