Japanese role-playing game (JRPG) enthusiasts may want to consider not packing away their PlayStation 3 consoles just yet! There are still a few new releases that aren't bridging the cross-platform generational gap, and developer Compile Heart's latest offering is one worth checking out for fans of the genre.

Read on, true believers.
