Good turn based jrpgs?

Looking for traditional type RPGs that are turn based and resemble something close to final fantasy VI or chrono trigger? Can be new or old... (iPod 4 gen)

I'm really interested as well! I just got an iPhone 4S and I'm looking forward to all the games I get to experience on this platform!

There are not many at all. In my opinion, the only good ones are Chaos Rings, Final Fantasy III, and Crimson Gem Saga, which is by far my favorite of the three.

Waiting for: Chaos Rings II, Phoenix Wright 123
I will always love: Kairosoft and CAVE Co. Ltd., Capcom, Godzilab, Simogo
Feel free to add me on Gamecenter; I'm Kirbychewy!
Dodonpachi is no longer my favorite iOS game.

Chaos Rings
Chaos Rings Omega
FF1
FF2
FF3
Crimson Gem Saga
Ash

Those are definitely the best ones. It's a short list sadly. Most of the RPGs on the AppStore are action RPGs. Chrono Trigger will be on the AppStore before the end of the year. Add in Alphadia, Symphony of Eternity, and Eternal Legacy if you're looking for a top 10 iOS JRPG list.

Lol, Rimelands is definitely not a JRPG.

I'm not sure the last two games on your list and SF2 are considered JRPGs. Dragon Fantasy and Guardian Saga are both excellent games though. I'd pass on Vay and Monster RPG 2.

Chaos Rings and Chaos Rings Omega, plus FF 1/2/3 if you liked those (I actually don't). OP, you're in luck because Square-Enix announced that Chrono Trigger would be released next month, so maybe look into getting that.
