    Hi all, i am looking to get my teeth into a few more offerings in the Jrpg department. Now i know there isn't a plethora of western titles available, but im hoping there are some which may have slipped under the radar.

    I would like to add that i have recently completed eternal sonata and absolutely loved the game, and i have just recently purchased tales of vesperia.

    Is there anything else similar?

    Many thanks in advanced :)

    Wikipedia has a entry on Xbox 360 games, Maybe you could check there for some other JRPG's.

    I'll list all the Jrpgs I own for the 360:

    Resonance of Fate
    Infinite Undiscovery
    Lost Odyssey
    Blue Dragon
    Enchanted Arms
    Star Ocean: The Last Hope aka Star Ocean 4
    Tales of Vesperia

    All of these are really awesome games, some of them might not please everyone and have somewhat low scores in review websites, but all of their stories and gameplay are fun imho.
    If you like Star Ocean games, you should def try Star Ocean 4, which actually serves as the prequel for all the other games (in terms of timeline it's the first one), Lost Odyssey has a gorgeous story and the characters are really well done, it also somewhat side stories that tell you about the main char's past, some of them are really beautiful and moving, in Enchanted Arms you have a pretty typical anime hero, he has some kind of power that makes others dislike him but is best friends with the best student and coolest guy who all girls like, but it has quite a plot twist and the gameplay and the robots you can use when you fight is pretty awesome, Infinite Undiscovery is a game that has a really nice world, the main char is pretty much a wuss at first, all he can do is play the flute and doesn't really know how to fight, however he looks just like a really famous hero that's saving the world so he's mistook for that very hero and his adventure begins, unwillingly. Lastly ther's Resonance of Fate, it's not your typical Jrpg, but it's really enjoyable, I specially love the fact that you can get new costumes, hair, glasses, etc... You can costumise the main chars clothes and styles, it's kinda pointless for most, but I love making my char look diferent after each chapter. =3

    Infinite Undiscovery is a hidden jewel from Square Enix, it's pretty good and has 3 DVD's or something... Can't really remember how many there were, it's a lenghty game. x3

    Lost Odyssey is really good and also Resonance of Fate has an original fun battle system.
    Both games as well as the others on the list by Skelletonike are well worth a look in and really cheap now.
    Also FFXIII, though not generally liked by the masses, is still a good game.

    I am currently playing Dark Souls and am completely hooked!

    While it's not similar to the kawaii RPGs you asked for, it's a damn good game, cheap as hell now and you'll be missing out by alot if you skipped this.

    I'm playing Lost Odyssey and so far it's the best classic jrpg from this generation.

    Here are some that I know about. This won't be a good list, as I'm using my tablet right now, so bear with me.

    Eternal Sonata
    Tales of Vesperia
    Final Fantasy XIII
    Star Ocean: The Last Hope
    Enchanted Arms
    Blue Dragon
    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

    At the time, this is all I know of. I'm definitely editing this when I get to a computer.
