    Uhm...FFXIII does not mean FF8, the roman numeral for 8 are VIII

    Anyway, you're looking for one with an ATB gauge so try looking at any and all JRPGs on the Wii.

    Yeah, but the old turn-based stuff has gone out of fashion in recent years, you could try FFIII on SNES9x if you wanted, its a good old game with an ATB gauge.

    You'll never find anything exactly like FFVIII (that draw system is pants...playing through it now and having the fun of drawing friggin everything!)

    yeh I see what you mean, seems that these sort of games on the wii are wither spoilt by stupid mini games or shaking the wiimote as fast as you can I dont wanna get a sweat on playing these games lol, I got alot of games but didnt get a few because of crappy scores from IGN or other sites, but really anything like ff8 bakugan (without the exercise) or some other rpg without mini games

    One JRPG that's getting translated right now that I can think of off the top of my head would be.... Arc Rise Fantasia

    Arc Rise comes out in June, I think. Otherwise, you can wait for The Last Story and Xenoblade (aka Monado), but those are still TBA this year.

    "not really FF" is the understatement of the year. And I apply that statement liberally, from the gameplay mechanics to the story to the pacing.

    By "not really FF" he means it's not Final Fantasy in terms of how it's played. I could say a game is "not really Imagine" simply because it has different gameplay. He's not saying it as a pro or con, he's saying it as a fact.

    yep, and by understatement of the year. I mean it's not at all like final fantasy in terms of how it's played.

    And by, thanks for being so informative, one day they'll definitely make you a mod, i'm using sarcasm.

    Okay, cool story, thanks for being a dick.

    There Oopona, which I think is a turn based RPG game and about as close as you'll get to regular RPGs on the Wii. Reviews for it are pretty meh though, and I'm not really interested in it myself.

    Arc Rise definitely is (by June I mean the US release date) and I'm pretty sure Xenoblade/Monado is going to be in English as well. No word on The Last Story, since we've had very little info on it.
