Famitsu’s Most Wanted: Tales of Xillia back on top
posted on 06.23.11 at 02:36 PM EST by (@salromano)

Our last “Famitsu’s Most Wanted” update back in April saw Dragon Quest X finally triumph over Tales of Xillia after countless weeks of the Namco Bandai RPG taking the top spot. This week, Tales of Xillia returns as most wanted. And since we haven’t done any updates for the past few weeks, we’ve included each game on the list’s position last week and the week before it.

The first number after the game title and platform is last week’s position, and the next second number (following the slash) is the prior week’s position.

      @ekka4shiki:

      Indeed, first thing I saw was…

      14. The Last Remnant (PS3) – 21/22

      Are you serious? Dear Japan, get a decent laptop or something and you can play the game. It’s been out on PC forever, and does not require a really expensive pc to play.

      I hate to say, I didn’t like the game very much.

      How about Versus sitting at 11. It seems like that even Japan is growing annoyed with the development time, and how they drip us information on the game via a super old iv drip every 5 months or so.

      Ugh, Dear Square-Enix…this is 2011, stop acting so secretive with your games, and stop announcing them 5 or so years before they are set to release.

      The fact that Versus is still hyped to this day is a testament to your fanbase, they deserve better.

        @Zero: I like how theyre(nomura) not telling us everything,I hate how we know everything about most games before they come out.I like surprises then again Im also fine with games that take time to get out.

        • Zero

          @KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler:

          I can understand that. I think keeping a game behind closed doors is surprising and gets the fans excited.

          I think there is also a way to correctly utilize that, and I don’t think doing it with a game you announced in 2006 is one.

          It starts to become more worrisome to fans instead of exciting, I mean… It’s already been 5 years or so since then.

          Also, not just SE, but lots of Japanese game publishers are awful about this, they want to keep everything locked in a vault, and that just isn’t the way of the gaming world anymore. This is 2011, and we are in the digital age. We see developer diaries, game play videos that sometimes last even 10 minutes or more, various articles covering the game and its development, and usually several sets of demo builds, some released to the public, others not.

          So many JP game publishers don’t do this, they are set with keeping things the old way, and it’s hurting them all around, even in the wallet. It’s bad business practice to not utilize the internet and all the different ways to communicate with the fans these days.

            @Zero: Yeah 5 years was a bit much,i still prefer the approach theyre using rather then the over amount of info.

  • Kurai Warrior

    Yeah of course XIII-2 is higher on the list then Versus XIII, it’s coming out in Japan in 6 months or less and it just got a media blowout. So uh yeah, not very surprised there.

  • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

    Versus 13 for me

  • AdamBoy64

    Skyward Sword and Tales of the Abyss 3DS are the two titles on this list I’m excited about at the moment..

    Xillia I’m not too excited about. If it gets announced for localisation I’ll get excited about it, otherwise there’s not much point.

    • rewpbertt

      @AdamBoy64: See Namco, you’re not just destroying sales you’re destroying your fans.
      I’m still excited for Xillia, i’m going the faith route this time lol

  • whiteferrero

    Hah! with all the awesome footage from Type-0 i knew it was gonna go way up the ranks! great!

  • http://www.gamearia.com matcha

    I’m excited about Xillia even though there is no news for localisation yet. It looks good!

    Also looking forward to the Final Fantasy titles, Metal Gear, Resident Evil and Uncharted.

      @matcha: Xillia produces drool.

  • talesoffan

    Dark Souls rose a bit.

    Nice to see Super Robot Wars OG and Monster Hunter 3rd HD make the chart.

    Go Xillia!!

    • Sal Romano

      @talesoffan: Dark Souls rose A LOT. Moving from positions 13 and 12 the past two weeks to position 4 this week is a great leap!
