No. 1: Dragon Quest X.

Guess which game came in as first most wanted in issue 1210 of Weekly Famitsu. Dragon Quest X, of course. The top five this week contains the same games as last week, with the order switched up a bit. Persona 4: The Golden moved up from position four to three. Monster Hunter 4 moved back from position three to five, and One Piece: Kaizoku Musou moved up from five to four. As far as the rest of the top 30 go, there were some other, more signficant moves. Kingdom Hearts 3D moved up four spots, going from position ten to six. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy moved up twelve spots, now sitting nicely at position ten. New games in this week’s chart includes Imageepoch’s Toki to Towa and Capcom’s Resident Evil 6.

Get the entire list list below. The numbers follow this key: this week’s position/last week’s position.

    Theatherythm releases next week I guess, so it makes sense it moved up a couple of spaces. KH 3D should go up higher as we approach the release date.

    I didn’t expect Japan to love DQ X so much, given it’s mmorpg’ish shape, but….it’s Dragon Quest after all and they’ll dig in nonetheless!

    • Sal Romano

      @FaithlessMr: I’m tired of seeing it up there! Something must dethrone it!

      Seriously, lol, it gets boring using a Dragon Quest X image for every FMW post!

      Also: glad to see Toki to Towa and RE6 finally on there!

      • FaithlessMr

        @Sal Romano:
        I’m guessing it will stay up on the top until it actually releases now, Japan can be quite obsessed over their Dragon Quest games.

        I love the series, but I’m not excited in the least about this one, given how they’re making it a mmorpg. Just not my thing.

    Sony needs some more major titles because they can’t expect Persona 4 to push units by itself. I hope they have some major announcements at some point in the near future.

    Nice to see this:

    19/—. [PS3] Toki to Towa (Namco Bandai) – 179 votes

    up there so soon :)

    • Sal Romano

      @talesoffan: Agreed! Game looks sick!

      Just wish they’d hurry and release that trailer (or an all-new one, even) in HD, along with some screenshots. =\

    I still think making Dragon Quest X a MMORPG is a stupid risk for Square-Enix to take.
