The JRPG genre has been around nearly as long as gaming itself. It seems that every possible mechanic, trope and storyline has been bled dry. However, every once in awhile, a game comes around that tries to do something completely different, with all the good and bad aspects that comes with the change. The Longest Five Minutes is certainly one of those unique games.
Instead of starting your quest in a hometown, preparing for the adventure ahead. The game starts you at the final boss, The Demon King. Unfortunately, during the fight your hero loses all of his memories, and doesn’t remember who his party is or why they are fighting. The rest of the game follows your hero, Flash Back (Ha. Ha.), recollecting on the events that led him to the final boss.
