Famitsu’s Most Wanted: Issue 1234

No. 1: Monster Hunter 4.

A new king is crowned in this week’s Famitsu’s Most Wanted. Monster Hunter 4 has claimed the top spot over Resident Evil 6 for the first time. (At least, I’m pretty sure it’s the first time. It was inevitable, anyway.) Resident Evil 6 is in position two; Dragon Quest X follows in at third; New Super Mario Bros. 2 at fourth; and pushing Tales of Xillia 2 out of position five is Animal Crossing: Jump Out.

    Wha, I don’t know if this is slightly bizarre but are some of them actually excited for Max Payne 3, a western SHOOTER?

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    Yes!!! Resident Evil 6 got knock down.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Square should just come out and confirm The Last Remnant PS3 as canceled. It’s a bit annoying seeing it on the list every week when it’s never going to come out.

    • DjangoRaijin

      Silly Silly Sal… THE LAST REMNANT PS3 SHALL NEVER DIE!!!! MUHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! TROLL TROLL TROLL.

      • DjangoRaijin

        Jeez guys really I even said Troll in the comment. It was a joke dang. 4 dislikes for joking around. I hope this site really doesnt lose its sense of humor like that other guy said.

          I gave you an up vote. Don’t worry about it, the down voting is pretty awful, and I’ve expressed as much to Sal. I honestly never down vote any comments, the anon people down vote anything and everything…

          I think most of the down votes are coming from unregistered users, because they can still vote on a comment.

          Let’s hope Disqus gets to work and puts out some updates with more features, I would like to see down vote removed, and a like button added. That way, if someone does disagree with a comment, they actually have to respond with why they disagree. You know, instead of just clicking the down arrow.

        • zakou

          There another vote up xD happy now?

    • DarthBrian

      If by ‘annoying’ you mean ‘awesome’, then I agree with you. :p

      Only reason I stopped caring about The Last Remnant PS3 is because I bought it for cheap during a Steam sale. :p

    • Kin23g

      I played The Last Remnant on Xbox360 three years ago.. I got kind of bored and stopped playing at the end of the 2nd disc. I know I should’ve finished it after all those hours. xD

      • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

        To be honest, it really isn’t that great of a game.

    • zakou

      Maybe it will come out, I’ve read that back then Square had trouble with the PS3 running unreal engine 3( who didn’t have trouble running that thing on the PS3)

      But now they said that there’s no more issue with UE3 running on da pee essu sri! XD

  • rockman29

    Come on, the top PS Vita title is a Hatsune game? That’s just sad.

    • Locksus

      BURN THE NONBELIEVER! Hatsune is awesome :(

    • xMCXx

      You don’t know Japan very well, do you? ;D

  • Gaara D. Dragon

    Shin Megami Tensei IV is THE most wanted game for me. 8 years after the legendary Nocturne.

    • http://moefx.wordpress.com/ barklight

      If only, if only it’s on a console! Damn…

  • PrinceHeir

    it was inevitable :P

    glad Devil Summoner Soul Hackers, and Yakuza 5 are on top :)

    Versus XIII struggling but i think it’ll knock MH4 once the TGS trailer is released :P

    shame Project X Zone and SMT4 should be higher.

    lol The Last Remnant is still there :P

    very surprise to see AC3 and MP3 O_____O

    i was hoping Deus Ex HR had top the charts, maybe alot of japanese would have played the game if that were the case.

  • EspadaKiller

    Yay at least Versus is still up there :P
