Four beloved JRPGs are coming to Google Stadia

Google Stadia Mar 25, 2021

Google is going deep in getting third-party games added to the Stadia library.

Although we just reported on DIRT 5, Murder By Numbers, and Kaze and the Wild Masks coming to Stadia this week, Google has decided to announce even more games coming to the cloud gaming platform.

This time, it is four JRPGs.

To escape from the Prison City of Balduq, he must ally with five other Monstrums, each with their own unique Gifts, and stop the Grimwald Nox, a shadowy dimension on the verge of overflowing into the real world."

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA

Final Thoughts

It is good that Google is continuing to add games to its platform. From upcoming AAA games like Resident Evil Village to Japanese Role Playing Games like the ones being added above, Google is starting to double down on games from every end of the spectrum.

As a JRPG fan, I love that Google is adding the above games!
