A month agoFinal Fantasy 16’s stranglehold on top of Famitsu’s weekly charts for the most highly anticipated upcoming games (decided by votes from the outlet’s readers) was broken by Splatoon 3, and since then, Nintendo’s upcoming shooter has consistently topped the charts every week. That is once again the case, with Final Fantasy 16 once again in second place, while Xenoblade Chronicles 3 follows in third place, where it was last week. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s unnamed sequel also holds steady at No. 4.
