Tales of Arise and Final Fantasy 16 have been hovering around the top of Famitsu’s charts for most highly anticipated upcoming games (as voted by their readers) for a long time now, and it’s no surprise that the action RPG duo is in the top 2 positions once again. Tales of Arise takes the top spot, with a lead of 200 votes over the second placed Final Fantasy 16. And Final Fantasy 16 isn’t the only Final Fantasy game in the charts either, with Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade coming in at ninth place.

Meanwhile, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s sequel – which doesn’t even have a name yet, much less a release date – is continuing to pickup momentum. It’s still in third place, where it was last week, but has considerably more weights. Other elusive upcoming Switch exclusives like Bayonetta 3 and Shin Megami Tensei 5 are also in the charts at No. 4 and No. 6 respectively, and between the pair are Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Splatoon 3, which is out some time next year, breaks into the charts, placing tenth, while Samurai Warriors 5 at No.7 and Pragmata at No. 8 round out the top 10.
