18 great deals in the Steam Golden Week Sale, and only most of them are JRPGs

Steam’s latest mega sale celebrates Japan’s Golden Week, with several of Japan’s major publishers attending.

Somehow I missed that until today because the individual sale pages are hidden behind obscure banners, but until April 8th Square Enix (opens in new tab), NIS America (opens in new tab), Bandai Namco (opens in new tab), Koei Tecmo (opens in new tab), Spike Chunsoft (opens in new tab), Sega (opens in new tab)And Capcom (opens in new tab) I have a lot of games on offer and I picked 18 that really caught my eye and that of my colleagues.

  • Brave Default 2 – 50% off for $29.99 (opens in new tab): One of The best JRPGs that have come out in the last few years and the only perfect score I’ve personally given in the last five years – look at ours Bravely Default 2 review for more details.
  • Persona 5 Royal – 35% off for $38.99 (opens in new tab): A better version of arguably The the best JRPG you can play today.
  • DragonQuest 11 S – 35% off for $25.99 (opens in new tab): One of the few games that can actually compete with the above list in the battle for best JRPG. A classic polished to a high gloss.
  • Scarlet Nexus – 75% off for $14.99 (opens in new tab): Great combat, dark but beautiful world, weak site content – the perfect $15 game.
  • The Yakuza Collection – 75% off at $35.00 (opens in new tab): Get a curb stomp, bike toss, ram Seven Yakuza games for an average of $5 each and prepare to not play anything else for about 1,000 hours.
  • Atelier Trilogies – 51% off at $58.48: I don’t know exactly why, but these crafting RPGs are almost never for sale, so you’re getting half the price Mysterious trilogy (opens in new tab), Arland trilogy (opens in new tab)or Dusk trilogy (opens in new tab) is a rare and solid offering. Choose your favorite package and get three (long) games for the price of one new one.
  • Zero Escape: The Nonary Games – 70% off for $8.99 (opens in new tab): The double whammy of Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward hides one of the best puzzle games in one of the best visual novels.

  • Kidney Replicator – 60% off for $23.99 (opens in new tab): A hefty discount on the modernized remake of the open-world RPG that started it all, so to speak, if you don’t read the Deep Nier lore, and I don’t recommend doing it without doctor’s approval. (Nier: Automata is 50% discount (opens in new tab) to.)
  • Chrono Trigger – 50% off for $7.49 (opens in new tab): About as close to required reading as JRPGs can get.

  • A Whole Lot of Final Fantasy – 50% Off: Square has 14 of these items on sale, and they’re 50% off on average.
