Greatest RPG Video Games Coming In 2017
The Year of RPG’S
DRAGON QUEST VIII: JOURNEY OF THE CURSED KING 3DS
2017 starts off with a remake of one of the most beloved JRPGs of all time. Originally released on the PS2, Dragon Quest VIII makes its way to a handheld on 3DS in January. It’s more than just a port however, as the 3DS version actually adds on brand new cutscenes and story, party members, and gameplay changes.
DYNASTY WARRIORS GODSEEKERS
Godseekers is a big deviation for the Dynasty Warriors series, taking things into the realm of turn-based tactics. You’ll play out the big battles the series is known for, but this time from a top-down isometric view. It’ll only be launching digitally on PS4 and Vita
This action-RPG is co-developed by Square Enix and Platinum Games, and functions as a sequel to the original NIER on Xbox 360 and PS3. You don’t necessarily need to have played the original though, as Automata focuses on an android named 2B thousands of years after the first game. It’s launching exclusively on PS4.
MASS EFFECT ANDROMEDA
Mass Effect will finally make a return in 2017 with Andromeda, a brand new direction for the series. Andromeda introduces new gameplay systems like a jetpack, and a brand new protagonists with a brother and sister named Ryder. Bioware’s new title is heading to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
