I remember when we owned a Japanese Snes, we used to get the Game Pro mag and it used to have loads of reviews/previews of JRPG's. What's happened to those type of games ?. Why is there a lack of them on this gen consoles ?.

Yeah I got that one

The 360 could have done with a few off them imo.

360 doesn't sell in Japan. MS threw money at Mistwalker to make a few games but it didn't break japan like they hoped.

Try the PSP. Theres hundreds of JRPG's on it. No localisation though, so you need to be able to read Japanese.

They went to the handhelds, both the DS and the PSP had huge amount of them. The PS3, 360 and Wii also had their fair share too, but generally speaking it's the portable systems where you will find the best examples of the genre these days.

The 360 did have a few JRPG exclusives:


Mistwalker:

Blue Dragon
Lost Odyssey

Namco:

Tales of Vesperia
MagnaCarta II

Square-Enix:

Infinite Undiscovery
The Last Remnant

Just a minor setback there

Congrats.

xBlaKOuTZxX, you may wish to try Tales of Vesperia on 360 if you liked Ni No Kuni, it's pretty highly regarded among JRPG fans and it's quite similar in both combat and visual style. See what you think here

I think there's even a demo on the marketplace.
