They think that the term JRPG was taken from Square Enix

Square Enix is ​​one of the most well-known Japanese companies in the sector, since it is especially well-known if we talk about the JRPG genre. This could not be done otherwise, and we are talking about the parents of Final Fantasy, a franchise that revolves around the genre in time, and which has given us, over the years, some of the best RPGs in history. For this reason we speak of the eminence in the said class, which is therefore fully considered when he speaks of such questions.

Clearly, in recent years, this company has been marked by bringing back to life some outstanding successes, most of them belonging to the genre that provided them with success at the time. Now we are waiting for the release of the next video game of the most famous franchise, the title of which you can already find our impressions.

In this upcoming release, the production manager Naoki Yoshida gave several interviews, in which he left us various titles, because he gave us many details about the game. In the same way, we have also known some curious beliefs, such as we will explain below.

A term that can be accepted

Specifically, in an interview with Yoshida for the famous YouTube channel Expertise Up (you will find the video in question below), this Japanese developer explained how the term “JRPG” can be distinguished.

To be specific, he explains how in the past, this term used to indicate that certain games were developed in Japan, and therefore could be worse than Western versions of the game. In this way, it is quite common for Yoshida to see this term as a discriminator.

And so he determines that he knows that today is not put in this sense, but rather on the contrary, but he continues to have a very negative memory of this time, and therefore he does not want to listen.

After this, we can completely understand that Japanese developers prefer to avoid this term, although the truth is that it is so embedded in our world that it probably cannot be pulled out
