Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has posted its readers most wanted games for this year. You’ll notice that there are only two Nintendo related games in the top ten which are Dragon Quest X: Rise of the Five Tribes Online and Monster Hunter 4. Dragon Quest X, which was previously number one, has been overtaken by Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma which is coming out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

  1. [PS3] Dragon’s Dogma
  2. [Wii] Dragon Quest X: Rise of the Five Tribes Online
  3. [PS3] One Piece: Kaizoku Musou
  4. [3DS] Monster Hunter 4
  5. [PSV] Persona 4: The Golden
  6. [PS3] Resident Evil 6
  7. [PSP] Shining Blade
  8. [PSP] 2nd Super Robot Wars Z Hakai Volume
  9. [PS3] Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
  10. [PS3] Asura’s Wrath

        • Fanboys don’t look the entire picture.
          I’m a Nintendo fanboy, but I’m not blind, I know that’ll be many Sony system’s games, but I think that this list will change after E3, maybe some Vita, 3DS and WiiU games, maybe also PS3.

  1. Damn all thoae games sound like fun. I know japanese make the games, but whats so hard about putting up subtitles or dubbing the games and bringing them to the west? Its not fair.

  2. Sense monster hunter tri g (i think thats what its called) I think monster hunter 4 should be on the wii u instead, and a monster hunter 4 g could be on the 3ds. :)

    • As much as I want MH4 to be on the Wii U, I don’t think Capcom will restart their game production on the 3DS just to bring it to the Wii U. :/

          • Actually, I would say I don’t like it because it is a slow hack and slash wanna be puzzle game that people compare to Zelda and Ninja Gaiden series. The fact that it is a Sony only title has nothing to do with it. I own a ps3, psp, wii, 3ds, and an xbox controller for my pc; having predjudice for a system and it’s company is retarded. If you are going to hate something hate the company that produces half-baked games that are terrible and are only big because of expensive ad campaigns and paid off magazine reviews.

  3. Its silly how all the games on this list which are for PS3 are likely to be on XBox 360, as in Dragons Dogma as mentioned in the story above, but then why not mention that on the list?! Anyway im glad Wii has at least 2nd place, and a 3DS game to boot!!!

    • I don’t understand this people, if you like the Xbox, fine, you dont need to throw shit to other consoles. After all you haven’t created Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo.
      And before telling to other people to get a life, get yourself a life, cuz you’re losing time bothering people you dont even know. What’s the problem if they spend 600$ for an Atari it’s their money so stop fucking.

  5. And notice only 1 is 3DS, and 1 is Vita. Only, 3DS has games already out… Vita is soon to launch, and only ONE on the top 10 most wanted? That does not fair well for them.

    • Microsoft copied apple 2. True fact cuz apple 2 was out before Microsoft started.

      Also im using a mac not a pc.

      Microsoft operating systems are a apple rip-off and Micros operating systems are bug-full

      I’ve never experienced a bug issue or any of my games freazing with my apple.

      My PC i had before was horrible with games, it always froze playing spore and yes it was a windows runing horrible windows operating system. Spore never froze with my mac.

  6. Why no big news recently Sickr?

    When will Nintendo tell the release date and price for Wii U in Japan?

    They usually do it 6 months before release.

  8. Oh man Nintendo sure did lose a lot of spots. If they released a 3D pokemon game (sequel to Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness perhaps?) it would sell 3DS hardware units like mad as well as be a beast in software sales. Most people in Japan would move on from wanting a Vita to a 3DS and buy one for Pokemon. That’s what I would do if I were Nintendo anyways.

  9. Ah, I love Monster Hunter. The first game I’ve played was Tri, so I hope that they bring MH4 to the Wii U. Even if they don’t I will buy it for the 3DS.
