All Upcoming RPG’s of 2019

Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition

Bandai Namco Entertainment, Namco Tales Studio

One of the most thriving genres in gaming is definitely role-playing games (RPG’s for the uninitiated).

Every year, popular (and even lesser-known) development studios produce their own brand of titles that incorporate RPG mechanics. Some of these games embrace the more active battle systems featured in action RPG’s, while other entries in the genre harken back to classic turn-based mechanics. Other types of games even sprinkle in the best elements of RPG’s into their own experiences, which manages to entice fans and get them further engrossed into the grand adventure at hand. By looking at the gaming landscape for 2019, it’s clear that a huge collection of quality RPG’s is on the horizon.

The extensive list posted below covers the full gamut of 2019’s finest upcoming RPG’s.

There was a ton of hype surrounding Tom Clancy’s The Division. Anyone who followed the game’s development had every right to be excited – its co-op, open-world shooter premise sounded fun. Running around a New York City that’s been ravaged by a virus and fighting against rival factions sounded like a sure-fire hit.

But when it first launched, gamers were let down by its unfulfilled promises and lack of meaningful post-game content. The game saw several updates over time, but it looks like Massive Entertainment wants to start fresh with its most successful IP. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 throws players into a new war between survivors and marauders that takes place seven years after the events of the first game. The war has now been taken to Washington, D.C., which gives this sequel a new location to raid, ravage, and loot in.

Souls-like” is a term being thrown around a lot lately. Ever since From Software’s breakout hit grabbed gamers’ attention with its punishing difficulty, plenty of other games have adopted its mechanics to varying degrees of success. Deck13 Interactive’s futuristic take on the sub-genre, The Surge, was an admirable attempt that got a moderate amount of attention.

Now the development studio is looking to build upon the solid foundation put in place by the first Surge by offering up a full-fledged sequel. Once again, you’ll don an exoskeleton suit as you navigate dark locales, battle fierce foes, and chop off limbs all the while. The Surge 2 looks to be a vast improvement over its predecessor.

At one point, Code Vein was slated to release in 2018. The dev team behind this anime-stylized take on the Dark Souls formula decided to delay it and spruce it up beyond its current state. Everything that was put on display for the game looked promising, which is a good sign of what’s to come. The game’s post-apocalyptic setting, tough difficulty, and usage of NPC’s as battle allies set this “Souls-like” game from the rest of the pack. Code Vein could end up being a sleeper hit in the making if its extra development time works out all the kinks and helps it reach a near-perfect state.

The world of Pokémon is expanding to giant proportions. And that expansion is making its way to the Nintendo Switch.

And as expected, you’ll run into rival trainers, new breeds of Pokémon, and tough gym masters.

Heroland

Heroland – Launch Date Announcement TrailerHeroland is coming to PlayStation4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC on December 3, 2019! Official Website: http://www.discoverheroland.com The Heroland theme park offers guests an authentic RPG-style adventure for a price, but when a scruffy young park guide and his guests uncover ulterior motives by the organizers, legends become reality, and guests must take the fate…2019-11-14T18:03:08Z

Release Date: December 3

MOTHER 3, Legend of Mana, and Fantasy Life stand out as some of the better RPG’s to have ever been released. The key developers behind those games have gathered together to lend their talents towards a new quirky RPG called Heroland. You and a team of fellow tourists-turned-saviors must embark upon an unexpected adventure once things go awry at the Heroland theme park. This whacky premise throws you into classic party-based RPG battles with characters resembling cardboard cutouts. The far-out premise, unique art design, and classic RPG tropes make Heroland an RPG oddity worth investigating.

Darksiders Genesis

Darksiders Genesis – Introducing StrifeOne… Two, Three! Strife, the Rider of the White Horse, is both impulsive and witty, true to the motto "Shoot first, ask questions later" or "Two Guns, one Horseman". He is the one who has blood on his boots on a pretty much constant basis. He fought countless enemies with his two best friends, Mercy…2019-11-27T14:03:52Z

Developer: Airship Syndicate
Publisher: THQ Nordic
Platform: PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Google Stadia
Release Dates: December 5 (PC, Google Stadia), February 14, 2020 (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch)

This Darksiders spinoff not only changes up the viewpoint of the hack and slash action, but it also introduces another member of the all-powerful Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. Strife joins his brother in arms War for some top-down action RPG clashes against plenty of vicious demons. You’re able to switch between both warriors on the fly and take advantage of both protagonists’ signature approaches to combat. War is a close-quarters heavy hitter, while Strife dishes out pain from a distance with his chosen pistols. Fans of the Diablo series and dedicated followers of Darksiders’ ongoing plotline should step into the combative realm of Darksiders Genesis.

Gamers who’re still pining for the good old days of CRPG’s (Computer Role-Playing Games) have something big to look forward to in Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory. The game’s premise is pretty interesting – as the leader of a security group called the Troubleshooters, you set out to take on any and all opposers to the Friend Computer. This incredibly intelligent AI oversees the last human safe haven known as Alpha Complex, a retro-futuristic world that’s both wonderful and frightening. You and your team of computer AI defenders will beat back all that treasonous scum via fun and complex tactical RPG combat. There’s plenty of laughs to be had here all the while (well, uncomfortable laughs really).


Virgo Vs The Zodiac

Kinda Funny Game Showcase TrailerThis is the KFG showcase full trailer! :D I hope you guys like it!2018-12-11T18:31:57Z

Developer: Moonana
Publisher: Degica
Platform: PC
Release Date: December 12

Virgo Vs The Zodiac is one of the more eccentric RPG’s releasing in 2019. Unlike most of this entry’s genre contemporaries, this sci-fi/fantasy JRPG lets you take control of the main villain. As Virgo (also known as the Holy Queen or Dreadful Queen), you’ll wreak havoc across the Zodiac Realms. That havoc will play out via a battle system that should be instantly familiar and enjoyable to fans of the Mario & Luigi RPG series. The glorious pixelated art design, smart and funny dialogue choices, and the active participation involved in the battle system look to be Virgo Vs The Zodiac’s most interesting features. Keep an eye on this one.
