Famitsu has revealed its latest weekly charts for the most highly anticipated upcoming games, as voted by its readers, and the upcoming Switch exclusive Monster Hunter Rise is on top, as it has been for a while. It has a solid lead over the game placed second, Bandai Namco’s Tales of Arisewhich has also been around the top of the charts for a long time now.

Meanwhile, Final Fantasy 16 is unsurprisingly quite highly anticipated as well, taking the third spot in the charts, while Capcom’s upcoming survival horror behemoth, Resident Evil Villagefollows close behind in fourth place. The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild follows not far behind in fifth place.

Then there’s Bravely Default 2which is out exclusively for the Switch in a little over a month, and nabs the sixth spot in the charts. Fellow Switch exclusive, the ever-elusive Bayonetta 3is behind it in seventh place. Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei 5, due out for the Switch (also exclusively) this year, is placed No. 9.
