Game Freak

ConsoleNameDeveloperLucca's Observations
JP SFCBushi Seiryuuden: Futari no YuushaGame FreakZelda-like exploration; combat is 2D platformer-like, but still turn-based (enemies only act when you do); pretty spritework
SwitchLittle Town HeroGame FreakSee XBO
PS4Little Town HeroGame FreakSee XBO
Xbox OneLittle Town Hero (DL only)Game FreakPlays more like a deckbuilder, the only main RPG element is the skill tree, filled out by points earned in battles that take way too long

3DSPokemon Moon/SunGame FreakDoes away with the traditional gym battle format in favor of puzzles scattered throughout not-Hawaii, adds Ultra Beasts (which look suspiciously Digimon-like…)
DSPokemon PlatinumGame FreakLast of the "combined third versions" of Pokemon games, this one the arguably ultimate version of Gen 4
SwitchPokemon Quest (DL only)Game FreakSend voxel-styled Pokemon out to explore an island for you, then take the stones they find to level them up further; relies on free-to-play mechanics
