RPGs are probably the best genre of games there is, and you can quote me on that! Being able to customize your very soul, RPGs offer you experiences that will forever be more memorable than all the multiplayer shooters of the world! With a great roster of games coming out this September, we’ve decided to do a little and personal top 5 for you to discover the games that are about to be released and make your own opinion in regards to them!
Top 5 Best RPGs of September 2021
Just so everyone knows this now, we are not saying any of the games are better than the other ones, the order is purely based on personal hype…
So, let’s get into this top 5, shall we?
5. Tales of Arise
The descendant of the Tales of Berseria, Tales of Arise is an action JRPG that will be released on September 10th, and the fanbase can’t wait anymore!
Playing as the strong Alphen and the mysterious Shionne, you will get to witness the conflict between two civilizations, one in power and one in chains.
The world Dahna is a combination between technology and magic, similar to the world of Final Fantasy, and will feature a huge world in which you can climb, swim, cook and lead a revolution.
Though JRPGs are not known for their extensive customization, they are known for their great storylines, so be ready for a dark adventure that will surely have you on the edge of your seat.
4. Astria Ascending
Next, we come up with another JRPG on the list, this time, a turn based one. With beautifully hand drawn, 2D graphics, Astria Ascending promises to deliver a mature story with many twists and turns along the way.
You will play as 8 demi-gods that have been tasked with saving the world from the elusive Noises. End of the world? Check. Customizable characters? Check. This has all the promise to be a big hit in the RPG community!
With a pretty old school, elemental based battle system, the players will experience a classic, yet intriguing tale that will leave them wanting more.
The game looks beautiful in the trailers and the idea of 20 dungeons and 20 classes surely is something to look forward to. Let’s see if they deliver, on the 30th of September, when it comes out.
The singleplayer, isometric RPGs always have a chance of hitting a homerun. When the gameplay is not too intense, the stories and choices presented always have a huge chance to shine.
Gamedec is set in a cyberpunk world in which you are a detective. There will be many choices and a ton of customizable skills that can help you decide how you approach your investigations.
Obviously, since it’s set in a futuristic setting, we will have advanced technology that will have a big impact on the investigation, since the cases will happen in virtual worlds.
Released on the 16th, Anshar Studios promise us a true isometric RPG experience, which all players that love choices in games crave. A game that won’t have a combat system! An heir to Disco Elysium.
2. Diablo II Resurrected
On the 23rd of September, we will get Diablo 2 Resurrected. Let that sink in.
After 20 years of Diablo 2, a game many people still play like it’s their bread and butter, we are getting a remastered version of the classic.
Whatever your opinion on Blizzard may be, this multiplayer, action RPG will leave its mark on the world and many nostalgic players will play this for many, many hours.
Since this will be more of the same old Diablo, but with improved graphics, which can be disabled, and gameplay, there is nothing much to say besides: Don’t ruin Diablo 2, Blizzard!
1. Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous
We’ve gone full circle and we’re back to isometric, CRPGs! The world of RPGs is slowly making its way back to the old ways, and we shouldn’t fight the tide.
Coming in as a sequel that will, in no way besides the world, be related to its predecessor, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will be released on September 2nd and will be all that Kingmaker wasn’t able to be. Or so say the developers.
Owlcat Games now have the experience and the feedback from their previous title to learn from, and can deliver a gem that is not in the rough, as Kingmaker was.
With highly customizable characters, classes, spells and story choices, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous easily makes it at the top of my list. Luckily, we will learn if this was a bad choice or not in a really, really short time…
