Five Big Questions as We Preview the Year in RPGs for 2019

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | It's a brand new year, and we're here to preview Kingdom Hearts 3, Outer Worlds, and other big RPGs of 2019.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

We're fully into 2019 now, and it's time to take a look at all the big RPGs slated to arrive in the new year, including Kingdom Hearts, The Outer Worlds, and more [download link here]!

To organize things a bit, we break our preview down into five pertinent questions about the upcoming year in RPGs. We ponder the fate of BioWare; wonder whether Persona 5 will eventually make it to Switch, consider whether Kingdom Hearts 3 will live up to expectations, and more. Plus, we talk about some of the other RPGs we're looking forward to, including Indivisible and Fire Emblem. Buckle up, because it looks like it'll be a fun year for RPG fans.
