I've got the JRPG itch again, but seldom have the long uninterrupted periods in front of the console required to enjoy one. I'm wondering if there's a truly great, well-written, compelling game for either of my tablets, the iPad or the Kindle Fire.
The two games in the genre that I've adored are Eternal Sonata and Valkyria Chronicles. I love the artwork, the music, the story, the emotion. Not a big fan of grinding, but willing to put up with a little bit of it if there's a great story underneath (hence Eternal Sonata).
I know that Persona is probably right up my alley, but a Vita isn't in the budget right now. Are there any RPGs or JRPGs for the tablets that will absolutely wow me? I've looked in the app stores, but they seem just crammed full of free-to-play social junk.
