OK, I'm going to quit being sarcastic for a second and respond seriously because honestly I'm sick of this whole 'JRPGs are dead' meme...
Let's look at the list of upcoming JRPGs. Stupid trailer aside, Graces f is supposed to be a very good game with probably the best battle system in a Tails game yet. Atelier Totori was a great game even if the style isn't for everyone and Meruru looks like it will be even better. Xenoblade Chronicles seems to be considered by many to be one of the best JRPGs to come out in the last 10 years. And even though I've been a very vocal FFXIII-hater I'm actually starting to warm up to XIII-2. I still think the story will be complete crap but they are doing a lot to improve the gameplay experience. Famitsu even gave it a perfect score (for whatever that's worth...).
And how the heck has nobody even mentioned Ni no Kuni yet? That game looks gorgeous. Definitely deserves more attention.
Europe is getting The Last Story and since NoA finally caved on Xenoblade it's not difficult to think we might get that too. Further along I'm still optimistic about a Xillia localization, though it looks like that will have to wait until after the "director's cut" or whatever and given the slow localization of Tails games that will probably be 2013 at the earliest. But if you really want to be complete there are also titles like Neptunia mk. 2 and Agarest 2 in 2012 though I'm much less optimistic about them.
That's just console titles. Of course if you include handhelds there are even more. Even in this awkward transition period between handheld systems there are still titles to look forward to like Type-0 (which has been all but confirmed for a western release of some sort, even if we don't know the details...) and Grand Knights History. Oh yeah, and Devil Survivor 2.
I can't help but think that people are a bit too waxing nostalgic about the 'glory days' of JRPGs. Sure there were a lot of titles, but how many of them were worth playing, really? Every game I listed above (with the exceptions of Neptunia mk. 2 and Agarest 2) looks to be at least good, if not great. If that's what it means to be 'dead', then JRPGs can stay dead for all I care. There is no shortage of good games for me to play.
