2017 was another strong year for RPGs and was dominated by highly anticipated sequels. Although some dissappointed, many managed to maintain - and even surpass - the quality fans have come to expect from these series. Ubisoft released South Park: The Fractured but Whole, which continued the hilarity of the 2014 original. Persona 5 finally came to the West after a series of delays, proving that it was worth the wait. Team Ninja also unleashed Nioh, a game seemingly brought back from development hell to rave reviews. Finally, Nintendo gave us Xenoblade Chronicles 2 late in the year, which quickly became the premier RPG for the Nintendo Switch.
