Famitsu’s latest weekly charts (as decided by votes from the reader’s outlet) are in, and there’s been some interesting movement in the top 10 this week. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has been hovering around the very top spots for a number of weeks running now, and this week, it’s climbed into the top spot. Following it in second place (with a sizeable gap separating the two games) is Final Fantasy 16. 

It’s not the only Final Fantasy game in the charts either. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, which is due out next Winter for the PS5, has climbed up to the fourth spot. Meanwhile, a couple other Square Enix titles have taken spots in the top 10 as well, with Dragon Quest Treasures coming in at No. 3 and the Nintendo Switch version of Octopath Traveler 2 taking the ninth spot.

Elsewhere in the top 10, Pikmin 4 has climbed up to sixth place, while the PS5 version of the upcoming remake of Resident Evil 4 comes in at No. 7. Fellow Capcom title Pragmata is in the charts as well, taking up the very tail end of the top 10.
