Final Fantasy 16 Rises to Second Place on Famitsu’s Most Wanted Charts

Whereas Final Fantasy 16 had generally been at the top of Famitsu’s weekly charts for most anticipated upcoming games (as voted on by its readers), a few weeks ago it fell to second place, then to third place the following week. This week it moved up to second place, with the upcoming Switch exclusive Xenoblade Chronicles 3 being pushed back to #3. Meanwhile, other exclusive Switch members Splaton 3 hands on first place, and does so with a pretty healthy lead.

As is the case most weeks, the top 10 is dominated by upcoming Switch titles (or Switch versions of titles, in some cases), with Final Fantasy 16 being the only exception. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s following and Bayonet 3 continue to show their weight despite not having had good shows in a while, ranking #4 and #5. Meanwhile, the upcoming HD-2D remake LIVE LIVE is at No. 6.

dragon quest 10 offline took seventh place, and is followed in eighth place by Monster Hunter Rise: Dawn, which had not yet been cast during the vote for these cards. It is followed by pokemon scarlet and Purple at No. 9, and Ushiro in tenth place.
