Overview Including the ongoing series such as FINAL FANTASY, Kingdom Hearts, and Dragon Quest, Square Enix have developed numerous RPG titles. These are known as JRPGs and formed its own distinct culture. We would like to explain how the JRPG audio has developed culture-wise and technology-wise by looking into the music, sound effects, and dialogues.
