Dragon Fantasy Book II
Just short of being dragon fantastic

Product: Dragon Fantasy Book II
Developer: The Muteki Corporation
Format: PS Vita
It's incredibly easy for developers to make games that look like 16-bit JRPG. But it takes a rare talent to create a game that actually captures the feel of those mid-'90s games.
The Muteki Corporation has that skill, and Dragon Fantasy Book II pays satirical homage to some of the greatest moments of 16-bit roleplaying. Plus, there are plenty of geek culture references sprinkled in to keep more casual fans invested.
It's not a perfect game, however, and a few serious design flaws make it a bit of a chore to slog through at times, but overall it's one that you owe it to yourself to play if you're looking to take a lighthearted look back on the days of Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger.
Warts and all, it's impossible to not like Dragon Fantasy Book II if you can recall a time when Square and Enix were two separate companies
