February 3, 2012 Written by Cameron Teague

The latest issue of Japanese magazine Famitsu has released and with it an updated look at the 30 Most Wanted games in the land of the rising sun. The list is extremely Sony heavy, with 19 of the 30 releasing on one of the three Sony platforms. The biggest honors go to Dragon’s Dogma on PS3, which took 2nd on the list, and Persona 4: The Golden on PS Vita, which ranked in at 4th. One of my favorite series, Suikoden, comes in 27th with Genso Suikoden: Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki on the PSP.
