If there was an award for the most unlikely RPG revival of 2016, it’d have to go to Return to PopoloCrois. This series started out as a comic but became a cult classic game series in Japan thanks to a string of games on the original PlayStation. Now it returns for modern audiences, but Return to PopoloCrois is very much a return to the early days of 32-bit RPGs. It also brings in elements from the franchise formerly known as Harvest Moon, mixing the farming with a more traditional RPG experience. The two titles have a similarly peaceful pastoral setting (and apparently a large female fanbase in Japan) so it initially seems like a good mix, but unfortunately the gameplay side of things is a bit lacking.

Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale will take up 12,108 blocks on your SD card. For those that are curious, that’s nearly 1.5GB.

Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale will be available at retail and on the eShop in North America. In Europe, it’s a digital-only game.
