Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Kingdom Hearts 3 and Dragon Quest Builders 2 also rank close to the top.
The dominance that Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Kingdom Hearts 3 have had over the top spot of Famitsu’s charts for the most highly anticipated upcoming titles has finally been broken. In the latest charts, at the very top is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which was just a couple weeks away from launch when voting finished for these charts, meaning that hype for the game was at a fever pitch. We can probably expect to see it on top for the next two weeks as well.
That said the rest of the top 5 is mostly Square Enix titles. Kingdom Hearts 3 is in second place, trailing Smash by just 3 votes, while Final Fantasy 7 Remake comes in at third. It’s followed by a rare non-Square Enix title in Resident Evil 2 in fourth place. Meanwhile, rounding off the top 5 is Dragon Quest Builders 2, which is actually featured twice in the list, with its PS4 version being in the top 5, and the Nintendo Switch version coming in at number 10.
Meanwhile, God Eater 3 is placed sixth, with Judge Eyes (or Judgment out in the west, as we now know) follows it in the seventh spot. Devil May Cry 5 and Catherine: Full Body round off the rest of the top 10.
