Top 25 best JRPGs for Android phones and tablets

Updated June 22, 2021: New entries added

You can find loads of great role playing games (RPGs) on the Google Play Store, but we’re focusing on a very specific strand of the genre in this feature: the JPRG

Japanese role playing games have a totally unique flavour, influenced by The Land of the Rising Sun’s singular culture. It’s tough to pin point, but you know a JRPG when you see one – even if it hasn’t actually been made in Japan or by Japanese developers.

Spiky haired amnesiac heroes, improbably dressed sidekicks, absurdly proportioned weapons, screen-filling bosses, esoteric turn-based battle systems, magical crystals, mopey teen party members, cute chibi graphics… all signifiers of the JRPG genre.

We’re incredibly pleased to see the undisputed JRPG champs at Square Enix turning out Android game after Android game. And some of them are originals too!

You’ll also find star turns from Capcom, Nintendo, and more.

Unsurprisingly, Square Enix makes up a sizeable proportion of the following list. But it’s not the only JRPG name in town.

Here, then, is a list of 25 of the very best JRPGs on Android. Have we omitted your favourite? Let us know in the comments below.
