Chained Echoes
Chained Echoes is easily one of the best JRPG tributes out there and the second-best RPG of the year with beautiful visuals celebrating the foregone 16-bit art style.
Dragon Star Varnir
Dragon Star Varnir is an OK 3D dungeon crawler JRPG with visual novel elements. It has an intriguing dark premise and pretty fun characters, if you look past its flaws and fanservice it's a pretty enjoyable ride.
live a live
The way the game has been remade is superb both visually and in terms of gameplay and its soundtrack. Certainly, I feel Live A Live transcends decades given it’s age but the new visuals make it feel like an entirely new video game.
