Many out there in the gaming community will say RPGs are becoming stale. It is understandable that we have seen a lot of remakes and revivals of classic series with very few original RPG titles released but, in our honest opinion, here at Honey’s Anime, RPGs are far from becoming stale. Developed by DeskWorks Inc., RPG Time: The Legend of Wright takes the ideas of numerous RPGs and imposes them in a child-like state. Set in a world “made” by a child, players assume the role of a young child playing through another child’s RPG-created world that they drew on paper with a pencil. RPG Time: The Legend of Wright has the designs to be a fairly remarkable title but does it draw the perfect creation or is it like a child’s mind, filled with creation but not enough places to unleash it? We find out in our review of RPG Time: The Legend of Wright for the Nintendo Switch!

RPG Time: The Legend of Wright isn’t hiding what it is trying to sell. Unlike a high-end RPG akin to Final Fantasy or Persona 5, RPG Time: The Legend of Wright looks like a literal child made it but that is also a bit of an insult to how detailed this title is. Almost everything in RPG Time: The Legend of Wright looks like pencil-made creations with backdrops being created by a young boy who wishes to pen the ultimate adventure. Assuming the role of a hero called Wright, players embark on a quest straight out of the olden days of gaming, saving the day by being the hero the world needs. Simple but quite effective. RPG Time: The Legend of Wright clearly took some time to create—the website claims this was a ten-year developed work—and it hits all the right notes. Beautifully detailed worlds, intriguing monsters, a fun story, and a brilliant system all make RPG Time: The Legend of Wright something we’ve never really seen before. Honestly, RPG Time: The Legend of Wright reminds us, game reviewers, that originality does still exist and it can be awe-inspiring.

You might be fooled to think RPG Time: The Legend of Wright is one genre due to the name but surprisingly, this isn’t a one-trick pony. There are layers upon layers of gameplay themes to be found while venturing through RPG Time: The Legend of Wright. Some segments will have you attacking enemies via simple one-button prompts while others take a more turn-based approach with some cool ideas. There was even an impromptu baseball game with you wielding a shovel and hitting tank-shot baseballs. RPG Time: The Legend of Wright keeps players guessing what will be thrown at you next and we don’t wish to spoil too much, but we loved how RPG Time: The Legend of Wright never felt overly repetitive.

Okay folks, RPG Time: The Legend of Wright seems like a masterpiece but every game has to have some minor flaws here and there. One of the biggest issues we have with RPG Time: The Legend of Wright is the CONSTANT dialogue of how to do this or how to use an item. Literally, the first several hours feel like a tutorial of sorts despite having massive boss battles and adventure sections. Even as you pass later chapters, you’ll still be diving into lengthy dialogue segments that are fun, thanks to how it feels like it’s coming from a child’s mind, and can be overly hand-holding. RPG Time: The Legend of Wright is a bit too filled with lengthy helpful hints and handholding gameplay sections that can be a bit intrusive.

RPG Time: The Legend of Wright is clearly trying to echo how kids’ imagination can be explosive but also unwieldy. Kids will sometimes have the greatest ideas for games but can lose themselves to small attention spans and just making stuff up to suit the needs of the game. RPG Time: The Legend of Wright does this…often. It is silly to watch a ladder being erased to look cool or cute but when you constantly are given tasks that seem to change just to change, it can feel like an identity crisis of an experience. Did we dislike how much was crammed into RPG Time: The Legend of Wright? No, but we can’t deny it seems like ideas were pushed into this title every few seconds leading to moments where you will be scratching your head cluelessly as to why something was implemented here last minute.

Hey everyone I’m Aaron Curbelo or Blade as I’m called by my YouTube Subscribers. I’ve been an anime/manga fan since I was a young kid. In terms of anime I have watched nearly a thousand shows and have read hundreds of manga series. I love writing and honestly was so happy to join Honey’s Anime to get a shot to write articles for such a wonderful site. I’m a firm believer in respect in the anime community being the most important embodiment we should all have. We all love anime and we have varying opinions of series but we should respect one another for those differences! Life is too precious to spend it making needless arguments in a community that should be the shining example of loving an amazing medium. I hope as a writer for Honey’s Anime I can bring you folks some amazing articles to read and enjoy!
