Final Fantasy 16 climbs up to second place.
Monster Hunter Rise has been topping the Famitsu charts for most highly anticipated upcoming games, decided by votes from their readers, so it’s no surprise that the upcoming Switch-exclusive has topped this week’s charts once again. Meanwhile, Final Fantasy 16, which has also been close to the top of the charts since its announcement, moves up from No. 3 last week to second place this week.
That means Bandai Namco’s Tales of Arise has swapped places with Final Fantasy 16, moving down to third place. Meanwhile, Resident Evil Village in fourth place and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s upcoming sequel in fifth place have both retained their places from last week as well.
Every single other game in the series is a Nintendo Switch exclusive, notable enough, including the likes of Shin Megami Tensei 5 (No. 6), Bayonetta 3 (No. 7), Run Factory 5 (No. 8), and Bravely Default 2 (No. 9).
