There were so many great games on the SNES back in the 90’s. But when it comes down to RPG Classics Seiken Densetsu 3 was probably one of the very best RPG titles to never have been released in America during the 16 bit era. Since the game was released back in 1995 it had managed to sell close to one million units worldwide. If Seiken Densetsu 3 was released a few years earlier it could have possibly have sold more than it did.
In the mid 90’s people were starting to turn away from 2D gaming in favor of 3D gaming for consoles such as the PS1 and the N64. However, seeing Seiken Densetsu 3 on the Game Boy Advance would have been great as well during early 00’s.
The only problem was there were still issues between Nintendo and Square Enix following the fallout between the two companies back in the mid 90’s. If both Nintendo and Square Enix put their issues with each other to rest during the early 00’s we could have seen so many awesome titles including Seiken Densetsu 3 for the Game Boy Advance.
If you were are retro gamer back in the 00’s you will be happy to know that one of the most popular RPG titles from the decade will now be featured in the PlayStation Store. This version of Final Fantasy 9 is considered to be a remake of the original game and will be priced at $16.79.
However, the current price tag of $16.79 is only until September 26th since its on sale as of right now. On the 26th of September the price is expected to jump to $20 which will make many people want to purchase this RPG classic before then.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a decade since Final Fantasy Tactics A2 was released for the Nintendo DS. Since its release back in 2007 Final Fantasy A2 has managed to sell at least three quarters of a million units worldwide. As popular as the Nintendo DS was during the 00’s the Nintendo Wii seemed even more so. There were so many big RPG titles such as Xenoblade Chronicles, Tales of Symphonia, Final Fantasy Crystal and others that could have easily overshadowed this game on the Nintendo Wii.
However, when the original Final Fantasy Tactics game was first released in 1997 for the PS1 it managed to sell over 2 million units worldwide. But since the Final Fantasy was still very big on the PS1 in the mid 90’s following the release of FFVII it probably made sense that the original FF Tactics game would do great in sales during that time period. Many can agree that the Final Fantasy series has been more popular on PlayStation home based consoles then Nintendo during the 00’s. If Final Fantasy Tactics A2 was released for the Nintendo Wii it would be hard to tell how well the game would have done overall in terms of sales.
Shin Megami Tensei IV was a JRPG title that was released back in 2013 and ever since it appeared on the Nintendo 3DS it has done arguably well. Shin Megami Tensei IV has managed to sell over half a million units worldwide since its release and happens to be a game that some believe would have been better for the Wii U. However, the way the game was setup with the 2D overhead map along with a 3D map made this game appealing.
If Shin Megami Tensei was released for the Wii U the 3D first person battles could of been so much better in terms of graphics. However, when comes down to JRPG titles there are certain games that are much better if for handheld devices such as the Nintendo 3DS as opposed to home based game systems such as the Wii U. Considering the fact that the Wii U was not as much of a commercial success as the original Wii console having Shin Megami Tensei on the 3DS was probably a better decision in the long run.
As many of us know Disgaea 5 has been out for the PlayStation 4 since the Spring of 2015. Since then we have seen Disgaea 5 ported for the Nintendo Switch and not for the Nintendo 3DS which may appear as a surprise to many people. Especially, considering the fact that games such as Disgaea 3 & 4 were ported for the PlayStation Vita in the past.
In fact some people believe that Disgaea 5 would probably do better on the Nintendo 3DS as opposed to the Nintendo Switch. The 2D animish graphics and gameplay for Disgaea 5 is something that would be more fitting for the Nintendo 3DS especially considering the fact that it’s a JRPG title.
The world is still waiting for the release of Final Fantasy VII for the PlayStation 4 in the near future. The utilization of the Unreal Engine 4 for a remake of this action RPG classic is something that people have been hopeful of for over the past fifteen years. Even though, the game is promised for the PlayStation 4 the question that is one the mind of many is whether or not it will be featured on the PlayStation Neo.
It really depends on whether Sony decides to make the PlayStation Neo backwards compatible or not. While the PlayStation Neo is something many people are looking forward to there is still uncertainty about whether or not the console will be backward compatible with PS4 titles. If the PlayStation Neo lacks backwards compatibility then the Final Fantasy VII Remake would have to be ported for that game console.
Kingdom Hearts II was without a doubt one of the best selling games for the PlayStation 2. Following its release in 2002 Kingdom Hearts II had managed to sell over 4.3 million units worldwide for the PS2 which was an impressive feat at the time. Since the release of Kingdom Hearts II many people have waited for over a decade for Kingdom Hearts III which make this title the one of most anticipated RPG games in recent memory.
While many people are still unsure about the exact release date of the game itself we learned not to long ago that Square Enix will be showcasing some actual footage regarding the gameplay of Kingdom Hearts III. In terms of whether or not it will surpass Kingdom Hearts II in terms of sales is hard to tell at the moment. But it will be interesting to see what the sales will look like for Kingdom Hearts III during its first week.
