Famitsu has released their 20 most wanted games as of May 16th 2011, and as would be expected, both Ocarina of Time 3D and Skyward Sword are in the list. The 3D Ocarina remake comes in at 9th, with Skyward Sword for the Wii at number 19. Given that’s for the whole gaming industry, it’s great to see Zelda and Nintendo well represented.
- Tales of Xillia (PS3)
- Final Fantasy Type 0 (PSP)
- Dragon Quest X (Wii)
- Yakuza: Of the End (PS3)
- Fotokano: Picture Girlfriend (PSP)
- Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3)
- Mario Kart 3D (3DS)
- Metal Gear Solid: Rising (PS3)
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (3DS)
- Ragnarok: Princess of Light and Dark (PSP)
- Tales of the Abyss (3DS)
- Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (PS3)
- Final Fantasy XIII-2 (PS3)
- Akiba’s Trip (PSP)
- The Last Guardian (PS3)
- Tiny Battlers (PSP)
- Dark Souls (PS3)
- Animal Crossing (3DS)
- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)
- Stein’s Gate (PSP)
The list has some surprises really. I can understand Ocarina of Time being higher up than Skyward Sword, given that we have a release date and lots of recent hype. There’s also the fact we know that it will deliver. What shocks me most is that Skyward Sword isn’t the most wanted Wii game. Dragon Quest is big in Japan, but to top Skyward Sword…what?
Mario Kart 3D above both Zeldas was a bit of a surprise as well, not to mention Animal Crossing beating the upcoming Wii Zelda. Maybe we just love Zelda more than the rest of the world though… just maybe! Tales of the Abyss seems well placed, but it would have been good to see some Pandora’s Tower in there (which we also seem to love around here). However, each to their own. What do you think of Famitsu’s list? What would you change?
