It's nice to see that Sony isn't letting the PS2 die just yet. Better still, there's a couple of interesting RPGs on the horizon that seem sort of Final Fantasy-ish.
In late January there's Rogue Galaxy, a game by Level 5, one of the companies that produced Dragon Quest VIII, one of the best console RPGs of all time. Even better, the game looks to be a sci-fi RPG, or at least science fantasy.
In February there's Ar tonelico, a game that looks trippy as all holy hell but also pretty damn good.
I think Rogue Galaxy is a definite buy given what I've seen of it and the company behind it. Ar Tonelico is one I'm waiting on the reviews for.
Still, more RPGs is always a good thing.
