Final Fantasy XV

Top 7 Best JRPGs on Xbox One

After years of waiting, and assuming that this game would never see the light of day, Square Enix finally got it together and released Final Fantasy XV. To the delight of many, especially action-RPG fans, Final Fantasy XV is actually a solid game as long as you won’t miss the slower, more tactical nature of the earlier games.

I Am Setsuna

Top 7 Best JRPGs on Xbox One

I Am Setsuna is a modern throwback game to the JRPGs of the SNES/Playstation 1 era. Inspired by classic games like the Chrono games, I Am Setsuna is fast-paced JRPG that won’t wear out its welcome or force you to trudge through 60+ hours of random encounters.

Dark Souls II

On the flip side of I Am Setsuna, if you want to play a punishing RPG that will push your action-RPG skill to the absolute limits, give the first of the Dark Souls games on Xbox One a try, Dark Souls II. If nothing else, it will adequately prepare you for the next game on our list…

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls III is a fitting end to what was an epic trilogy of games across two generation of consoles. Demons/Dark Souls kicked off a whole genre of its own, and would become an inspiration to many developers in the years after. If you want to see what all the fuss about, you can’t go wrong with the most recent entry from From Software.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

Another action-RPG from Square Enix, fans of SE’s earlier ARPG work should feel right at home with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. You’ll need to balance a roster of classmates each with different strengths and weaknesses to complete dangerous missions in a plot centered around war.

Valkyria Revolution

Although not everyone’s cup of tea, the JRPG genre is not exactly flourishing on the Xbox One, so if you’re dying to play whatever you can get your hands on, Valkyria Revolution could be worth giving a shot. Valkyria Revolution takes the series to a full-fledged action-RPG. If you’re not a fan of tactical role-playing games like the original trilogy games were, and prefer action games anyway, Valkyria Revolution may not upset you as much as it did fans of the older games.

Romancing SaGa 2

Originally exclusive to the Super Famicom (SNES) in Japan, Square Enix decided to release Romancing SaGa 2 in late 2017 to modern home consoles. Romancing SaGa 2 is pretty unique for its time, allowing players to play across different generations/heir to expand an empire while balancing a budget.
