Final Fantasy 16 spent a few weeks off the top of Famitsu’s weekly charts for the most highly anticipated upcoming games (as voted by the outlet’s readers), but retook the top spot in last week’s charts. This week, it’s held on to the No. 1 position, and has a healthy lead over the game placed second, upcoming Switch-exclusive shooter Splatoon 3. 

Meanwhile, though Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was pushed out of the top 3 last week by Dragon Quest 10 Offline, the two have swapped places again. Bayonetta 3, which is launching exclusively for the Nintendo Switch in October, has climbed up from eighth spot to No. 5. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s sequel has also climbed up a position, with LIVE A LIVE – which hadn’t yet launched when voting for these charts took place – comes in at No. 7.

The top 10 is rounded out by Pokemon Scarlet and Violet at No. 8, Ushiro at No. 9, and Soul Hackers 2’s PS4 version climbing back into the top 10.

You can check out the full top 10 below. All votes were cast by Famitsu readers between June 30 and July 6.
