We have compiled the most anticipated RPG 2020, so if you want to pick up a couple of great games for the new year, take a look at our full list. At the moment 2020 looks like a bad year for our wallet and a great year for everything else. In the new year we are waiting for remakes of iconic classics and new projects inspired by the Dark Souls series. No matter if you have a PS4, PC, Xbox One or Switch, our top has games for every taste. All in all, meet the eight most anticipated role-playing games of 2020.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake
No wonder the remake of Final Fantasy 7 is on this list. The project has been under development for several years. Since the original Final Fantasy 7 was an incredible game with a grandiose world covering several discs, Square decided to release several remake games, the first part is Midgar.
Midgar serves as an initial tutorial in the original PS1 title, but focusing on recreating a sprawling metropolis should allow Square Enix to expand the section and revitalize the city, highlighting the solutions that Cloud and his colleagues are struggling with before heading into the world,
Some may miss the step-by-step strategy of the past, as the remake chose a more action-oriented approach, but it still gets high praise from those who played it. You can count on this title on March 3, 2020.
Nioh is mainly Dark Souls with samurai, and the second part is designed to do the same as its predecessor while improving the formula. This action-PRG will offer players an improved skill tree, new weapons, and superpowers that will transform as the players attack and have a slower, more methodical approach to the mad combat surrounding Nioh 2.
For those who are not familiar with the Souls games, passing Nioh 2 when the game is released in March 2020 will be an achievement in itself.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection
Playing games in the Yakuza series is like drinking good wine. Each character sounds like a Japanese movie about bandits, each thread of the plot is fully implemented, and the battle in battle definitely does its job.
The main premise has always been to tell a fragmentary story about the Yakuza during various mini-games around the world. And maybe that doesn’t sound very interesting, but it actually goes the other way around.
The Yakuza Remastered Collection will be released on February 11th, 2020, and will include the updated versions of Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5. At the same time buying the edition right now, you get access to Yakuza 3 and Yakuza 4 today, and the 5th part will be on February 11th.
Persona 5: Royal
Persona 5 is a new part of the famous series with an interesting history. Persona 3 dealt with the topic of death and exams, while Persona 4 sent players to a murder investigation center, where the offender had a habit of throwing his victims into another world and leaving them to die.
When Persona 4 Golden was released on PS Vita, it reinforced the story and added a lot of extra fun solutions, content and a whole new character to bring players back to their colorful world. Persona 5: Royal – will offer players much more content than Golden, which is definitely impressive considering that the original Persona 5 offers players over 100 hours of history.
Looking forward to Persona 5: Royal, which will be released in March 2020.
Tales of Arise
Tales of Arise series appeared thanks to original Tales of Phantasia released in 1995. But the series became famous thanks to Tales of Symphonia, which was released on Gamecube. Tales of Arise will be the 20th game in the series, the release of which is scheduled for 2020 and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The game will offer an updated visual style for the series, while familiar battles will not go anywhere. To fight against enemies you still need to learn combo strikes, as in fighting games. But it’s not hard to do it, just watch the training video.
Taking into account the history of the series, maybe it would be best to get acquainted with Tales of Vesperia, which is a good game to get acquainted with the series that has a great hero.
Dying Light 2
Dying Light 2 is another action RPG in our list of the most anticipated role-playing games of 2020, which introduces players to the horror of survival. Like the original Dying Light, the game will offer players parkour and superhuman skills, with the main character who lives 15 years after the first part events.
Dying Light 2 will block different parts of the city depending on the choice of the player, encouraging re-passing, for those who want to see everything.
However, the game is not a standard RPG in the zombie apocalypse, because according to the source, a writer from The Witcher 3 is working on the picture. Players will surely remember Caroline Stachira from the Bloody Baron quest line in Witcher 3, it was one of the best moments in the game.
Dying Light 2 will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2020.
Cyberpunk 2077 can be considered one of the main role-playing games in 2020, the next ambitious project from the creators of the series Witch, CD Projekt Red studios are waiting for a huge number of fans. The new project of the studio will take players into the future, where the most popular are criminal, glamorous and cybernetic implants.
Witcher 3 showed that the studio can create incredible game worlds with an even more incredible story and you can see that Cyberpunk 2077 continues this tradition.
The release date is scheduled for April 16, 2020, the game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Stadia.
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition
We’ve already talked about Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition in one of our most anticipated collections of Nintendo Switch games for 2020. For those who missed out on the Xenoblade Chronicles series, it was one, if not the biggest, JRPG of the Wii era. The game offers one of the strongest game stories, with incredible plot twists, even after 100 hours of play.
In this case the game will please its fast and very strategic gameplay, and the visual style is completely updated. So if you are a fan of JRPG, then this is the JRPG, that you should pay attention to in 2020.
If you are a beginner in role-playing games or an experienced veteran, you will definitely like 2020. New Year is preparing us a lot of interesting releases, and it is possible that we are waiting for the announcements of brand new role-playing games that have not been presented to us yet.
