Out of the 18 titles ,Breath of Fire 5 cut my attention the most.
Suikoden and Dark Cloud look like nice and very promising games also.

Don't hold your breath on Grandia X, this game isn't half-way what Grandia 2 was.

Yeah, I am looking forward to Wild Arms 3 ( the japanese version is visually stunning) and, of course, Growlanser and Xenosaga. This will keep me busy for a while...

I wouldn't call the Growlanser series RPGs.. more SLGs. If its the Houshinengi that I'm thinking of, where its basically Shin Sangomusou with Houshinengi characters, I wouldn't call that an RPG either.. and Sangokushi Senki & the actual Sangokushi series are pure strategy.

top 5 for me....=)

1. Xenosaga
2. Kingdom Hearts
3. Wild Arms 3
4. Dark Cloud 2
5. Final Fantasy XI

-FFXI was first in the list, but after the release of the game in japan and the problems, i got kinda dissapointed..but i hope it gets better when they release it here..=)

FFXI interests me, but this is Square's last chance to excite me about the eternal FF series unless I see something better from them.

I sincerely believe that Square made a mistake... at least they shouldn't have given the Final Fantasy title.

I'm looking foward for most of these titles!I love rpg games!!!

Must have for me is :
-XENOSAGA!!
-KINDGDOM HEARTS!!
-.HACK!!
-BREATH OF FIRE V

I think someone said that a new Lunar will be out on the ps2 but i'm not sure where i read it!
I'm also having doubts about FFXI simply because the game doesn't have something that catches my attention!But perhaps i'm jumping to conclusions to fast!!:(

I'm personally looking forword to XenoSaga right now. I'm not quite sure what to think about Kingdom Hearts yet, but it looks interesting.

That game is so close to Cel-Shaded graphics. It has a great Cartoonish look.

Famitsu mentioned Final Fantasy XI is probably the most complete and feature-filled online RPG of all, even surpassing most PC online RPGs; and the entire Final Fantasy series so to speak!! They said the game could last 5 full years, due to the huge amount of side quests, tasks, and things you can do in the game. So Final Fantasy XI is a long term investment for Square, imagine people stick with this game for 5 years!
