Y's is an action RPG like Zelda, it's not a JRPG like what you're thinking.

Patapon is more of an RPG than this game. You can't get anywhere in Patapon without going through the same levels multiple times grinding for better Patapon and equipment (when a game explicitly encourages the player to grind, that's a bad thing). The game requires so very little involvement from the player that even if you do an essentially perfect run on a level, you might not make it to the end simply because your Patapon aren't strong enough. Definitely a mechanic that game could've done without, and I've heard its sequels are even worse because they offer you more stuff to grind.
 
Needless to say, I didn't quite enjoy Patapon and have no interest in Patapon 3. Instead I'll be enjoying this well-balanced and extremely fast-paced top-down hack 'n' slash game.

Sweet another Zelda.

Looks like fun, I was iffy on this if it was turn based but it looks like an action RPG which I am always down for.

Ys never imitated Zelda.
 
Hell it doesn't really play like Zelda.
