[Japanese RPGs concentrate on narrative and battle systems, being more eager to tell a story than let the gamer play a role. However, Japanese RPGs didn't just appear out of nowhere -- as their roots lie heavily in early American computer RPGs of the 80s.]

Yankee hack-n-slash derivatives? - maybe - yet leaning more toward honour and glory styles. There were some good grid/turn based war strategy back in the 80's - important japanese elements.
