I am writing something on the subject and I can't for the life of me think of any JRPGs that're fully-voiced. Like Oblivion or Kotor fully-voiced. Does such a game exist?

I really don't think KoToR is really full-voiced, because some NPCs aren't voiced at all. If you go through the main plot line and don't take to any minor NPCs, I'm pretty sure that there are some JRPGs that are very well voiced, since seiyuu sometimes make their debut through video games.

But to name a few:
- Seishirou: Princess of Darkness (PSX, Strategy RPG): All scenes between battle maps are fully voiced, but there are no instances of going into town and talk to NPCs)
- Lunar Wing (PSX, Strategy RPG): (same as 'Seishirou: Princess of Darkness')

Thanks, but I'm not quite sure that's what I was looking for exactly. Probably more like traditional RPGs with towns and NPCs and stuff. Beginning to think that that kind of thing is probably more of a Western trend.

Japan seems to treat their seiyuus well. Probably some obscure game that I don't know about. I just can't see an "entire" game being voiced.

I remember all the way back when PC Engine was trying to make RPGs with voices in them like Cosmic Fantasy (I think that's what it was called) and such.

None of the newer JRPGs like Last Remnant or Star Ocean 4? I haven't really played.

I can think of a good many WRPGs off-hand where the majority of (or all) essential and non-essential characters get a voice but not so among JRPGs.

funny, google gives me this thread as top result when I look up "fully-voiced JPRGs".

Star Ocean 4 is huge on cutscenes (I have no played Last Remnant and don't seem too interested in it). When you go into towns, no NPC talks just quote bubbles.
