Rpgs getting rare?

I love rpgs, it's the genre I love more than any other but recently ios has been very poor indeed. (Unless I missed something)

I've not bought a game since Uhmm Dragon Quest IV and that was about 2 months ago. What happened?

DQ1 and DQ2 have been released, Kemco has released 3 or 4 titles (estimate) since DQ4, The Banner Saga is out (SRPG), Ambition of the Slimes has been released and its english translation is gon be added next update, Buff Knight the casual RPG, Princess and Knight is out (SRPG), Phantom Rift, Tactics Maiden (SRPG)...

Then there's the freemium crap that most of them arent even worth mentioning.

It's not a lot, but the genre's still alive. I guess most devs just go with smaller projects to sell em right away rather than make full blown games.

Oh yeah... Deep Dungeons of Doom turned premium. Game was rebalanced, and all IAP have been removed.
