The Bitmap Books publishing house presents an extensive compilation on the history of the JRPG, with great classics such as Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Suikoden, Panzer Dragoon and much more.
If you like JRPGs and want to know more about their history and legacy, the definitive guide will arrive on June 14 from Bitmap Books, which has prepared an enviable presentation, with over 600 full color pages, hard cover and two different editions, both available on its official website.
