Final Fantasy 16 Tops Famitsu’s Most Wanted Charts Yet Again

Square Enix's upcoming RPG has topped the weekly charts yet again, maintaining a healthy lead over Splatoon 3, the game placed second.

Final Fantasy 16

Final Fantasy 16 has been something of a permanent fixture on top of Famitsu’s weekly charts for the most highly anticipated upcoming games (as decided by votes from their readers) for a number of weeks running, and unsurprisingly, it’s held on to that position in the latest weekly charts as well. It has a healthy lead of over 100 votes over the game placed second, which is Splatoon 3.

That, in turn, only has a narrow lead over The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s sequel in third place, and the gap between it and Bayonetta 3 in fourth place is similarly negligible. Meanwhile, yet another upcoming first party Switch exclusive in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 takes fifth place.

There’s plenty of other upcoming Switch exclusives in the top 10 as well, as is the case pretty much every week. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are in at No. 7, while Monster Hunter Hunter Rise’s upcoming expansion, Sunbreak, slots in at No. 8. LIVE A LIVE, meanwhile, is still hovering in there as well, coming in at No. 9.

You can check out the full top 10 below. All votes were cast by Famitsu readers between April 21 and April 27.
