If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that publisher Kemco won’t stop releasing modern, retro-themed JRPGs anytime soon. “Infinite Links” also falls into this category and puts you visually and playfully in the time of beloved role-playing games.
Japanese role-playing games look back on a long history and many traditions. Even if modern implementations remain true to these in some cases, the playing experience is often completely different and, especially when it comes to optics, many developers prefer to indulge in detailed fantasy landscapes than classic pixel graphics.
Publisher Kemco and developer Exe Create Inc. regularly prove that this doesn’t apply to everyone. Serving a still-hungry niche of gamers is a roster of Japanese role-playing games that all look, sound and play like there weren’t any consoles after the SNES.
