Final Fantasy 7 Remake
Publisher: Square Enix
Developer: Square Enix Business Division 1
Final Fantasy 7 Remake has now topped the weekly charts for 89 million years in a row.
Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has released its latest weekly chart for the most highly anticipated upcoming games, as decided by votes from their readers. Final Fantasy 7 Remake has, unsurprisingly, taken the top spot once more- really, we shouldn’t even be mentioning which game was on top in these weekly reports, because after the 15 millionth week, it just starts becoming repetitive.
Here’s more repetition though, just in case you haven’t had your fill of it yet- Kingdom Hearts 3 is in second place, right behind its fellow Square Enix megaton RPG. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate follows close behind in third place, while fellow Switch exclusives Shin Megami Tensei V and Bayonetta 3 feature at number 6 and number 10 respectively.
Meanwhile, upcoming 3DS RPGs Etrian Odyssey X and Persona Q2 (which is going to receive some new news pretty soon), rank at eighth and ninth place respectively. Shenmue 1 and 2 HD Remaster, which recently received a Japanese release date, also comes in at 12th place. Meanwhile, the upcoming remake of Resident Evil 2 is in as well, at number 13, while Soulcalibur 6 follows right behind at number 14.
