JRPGs are games of a special class. Indeed, they are a sub-genre of the RPG, or Role-playing game which is an important part of the world of video games. Lovers and lovers of great adventures with epic accents, twists and multiple betrayals, this genre is for you. Indeed, the scenario takes a preponderant place in this genre to such an extent that the gameplay and the evolution of your character (s) will be influenced by it.
