Famitsu’s 25 Most Wanted Games (Jan 13)

January 13, 2012Written by Heath Hindman

The newest Famitsu is out, and it brings a new poll of the readers’ most anticipated games. With December having so much of the old list finally dropping onto shelves, it’s truly a fresh start. Well, except for the top spot, which has spent such a long time in development, you’d think it was a Square Enix game. And it is.

Here’s the list:

1. Dragon Quest X (Wii)

2. Dragon’s Dogma (PS3)

3. Monster Hunter 4 (3DS) (Has this actually been revealed?)

4. One Piece: Kaizoku Musou (PS3)

5. Persona 4: The Golden (Vita)

6. Fotokano: Picture Girlfriend (PSP)

7. Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3)

8. Animal Crossing (3DS)

9. Asura’s Wrath (PS3)

10. Tales of Innocence-R (Vita)

11. New Love Plus (3DS)

12. Resident Evil Revelations (3DS)

13. Shining Blade (PSP)

14. Kingdom Hearts 3D (3DS)

15. God Eater 2 (PSP)

16. The Last Guardian (PS3)

17. Binary Domain (PS3)

18. Armored Core V (PS3)

19. Metal Gear Rising Revengeance (PS3)

20. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (PS3)

21. Super Robot Wars OG 2 (PS3)

22. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (3DS)

23. Fantasy Life (3DS)

24. Tales of the Heroes: Twin Brave (PSP)

25. Yakuza: Black Panther 2 (PSP)

Sony should be pleased to see the PS3 so well represented, and even the PSP is having a great showing, considering its age and fact that newer handhelds have come into the market. We can see glimmers of Vita game anticipation, but one has to wonder how many sales that will translate into. Gosh, between Persona 4, Final Fantasy X, Disgaea 3, Ys 4, and Tales of Innocence-R, the Vita’s hottest games in Japan might all be RPG remakes.

I wrote a TGS impression of Black Panther 2 over yonder and if you’re interested, a complete review of the enjoyable first game in that Yakuza sub-series right here at the LifeStyle.
