To organize things a bit, we break our preview down into five pertinent questions about the upcoming year in RPGs. We ponder the fate of BioWare; wonder whether Persona 5 will eventually make it to Switch, consider whether Kingdom Hearts 3 will live up to expectations, and more. Plus, we talk about some of the other RPGs we're looking forward to, including Indivisible and Fire Emblem. Buckle up, because it looks like it'll be a fun year for RPG fans.
