Final Fantasy XIII-2 Makes Strong Stand in Famitsu’s Most Wanted

July 11, 2011 Written by Heath Hindman

The newest Famitsu shows that not only does Final Fantasy Versus XIII continue to stand outside the top 10, but its sooner-to-be-released-despite-being-announced-years-later counterpart is on the rise. Now sitting at number 3, the controversial Final Fantasy XIII-2 is higher than it’s ever been on the list.

Namco Bandai’s PS3-exclusive RPG Tales of Xillia still sits at numero uno, and smart money says it’ll stay right there until its Sept. 8 release.

1. Tales of Xillia (PS3)
2. Dragon Quest X (Wii)
3. Final Fantasy XIII-2 (PS3)
4. Final Fantasy Type-0 (PSP)
5. Fotokano: Picture Girlfriend (PSP)
6. Mario Kart 3D (3DS)
7. Dark Souls (PS3)
8. Dragon’s Dogma (PS3)
9. Metal Gear Solid Rising (PS3)
10. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (PS3)
11. 2nd Super Robot Wars OG (PS3)
12. Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3)
13. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)
14. New Love Plus (3DS)
15. Devil Survivor 2 (DS)
16. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Ver. (PS3)
17. Grand Knights History (PSP)
18. Dragon Quest I, II, and III Collection (Wii)
19. The Last Guardian (PS3)
20. Queen’s Gate: Spiral Chaos (PSP)
21. Monster Hunter Diaries: Poka Poka Island Village G (PSP)
22. Armored Core V (PS3)
23. Uncharted 3 (PS3)
24. Star Fox 64 3D (3DS)
25. Animal Crossing (3DS)

The Last Guardian
has also seen quite a slip. It once sat about where Versus XIII is, but has now dipped down to 19. That and others that have taken recent dips will surely pick up once some release dates are announced.
