Xillia fends off Dragon Quest in Famitsu’s Most Wanted

By Heath | March 21, 2011 at 5:00 am

Tales of Xillia continues to fend off Japan’s most beloved game series to hold tightly to the top spot on Famitsu magazine’s Most Wanted list.I had a bigger part of a full-on “American Gamer in Japan” column written that I was chiping away at before the quake/tsunami, but creative writing isn’t coming so easily right now so it’s gonna go right back on the back burner.  I’m sorry.

Here’s Famitsu’s top 30.

1. Tales of Xillia (PS3)
2. Dragon Quest X (Wii)
3. Super Robot Wars Z (PSP)
4. Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3)
5. Final Fantasy Type 0 (PSP)
6. Mario Kart 3D (3DS)
7. Metal Gear Solid Rising (PS3)
8. Persona 2: Innocent Sin (PSP)
9. The Last Guardian (PS3)
10. Final Fantasy XIII-2 (PS3)
11. Fotokano (PSP)
12. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (3DS)
13. Dark Souls (PS3)
14. Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories (PS3)
15. Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection (PSP)
16. The Legend of Zelda: The Skyward Sword (Wii)
17. Fantasy Life (3DS)
18. Tales of the Abyss (3DS)
19. Last Remnant (PS3) (Honestly I think I’m just going to edit this off the list manually next time, votes be damned.)
20. Amagami: Let’s Have Sex With Kids Edtion (PSP)
21. Biohazard Revision (3DS)
22. Story of the Last Promise (PSP)
23. Animal Crossing (3DS)
24. Tiny Battlers (PSP)
25. Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2: Professional (DS)
26. Pro Baseball Spirits 2011 (3DS)
27. Layton vs. Phoenix Wright
28. Black Rock Shooter: The Game (PSP)
29. Ass Seeker* (Wii)
30. TROY (PS3)

* = this title is technically written in katakana as “aa-su shiika,” which could be “Earth Seeker,” since the Japanese language cannot write the “th” sound or middle-of-a-word r sound, or it could also be “Ass Seeker,” as either would be written the same way in Japanese. I don’t have time for Google right now, so Ass Seeker it is.

Disaster Report 4 was cancelled after the Tohoku earthquake you’ve been seeing on the news, but the votes for this poll were cast before the disaster hit, so it’s still on the countdown.  The game has players attempting to escape a modern, realistic Tokyo that has been destroyed by an earthquake and right now, would hit a little too close to home.
