Final Fantasy 16 Drops to Second Place in Famitsu’s Most Wanted Charts as Shin Megami Tensei 5 Claims No. 1

Final Fantasy 16

For a number of weeks running at this point, Famitsu’s charts for the most highly anticipated upcoming games – as decided by votes from their readers – Final Fantasy 16 has been in the pole position, while Shin Megami Tensei 5 has been hovering around in second place and trailing by narrow margins.

In the latest weekly charts, Atlus’ RPG has climbed to the top spot, pushing Final Fantasy 16 down to second place. With Shin Megami Tensei 5’s release right around the corner, it’s not a surprise to see this happened, and wouldn’t be to see it happen again in the lead-up to the game’s launch.

The new entry in this week’s top 10 is Gran Turismo 7, which climbs to No. 9, up from No. 11 the previous week. Meanwhile, the PS4 version of Super Robot Wars 30 is in eighth place, with the game’s Switch version coming in at No. 7. Beyond that, a number of upcoming Switch exclusives like Bayonetta 3, Splatoon 3, and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl figure in the charts again, as they so often do.
