Famitsu: Here’s The Most Wanted Nintendo Games In Japan This Week

Every week Weekly Famitsu publishes its readers most wanted Nintendo games and this week in no exception. With Dragon Quest XI finally released on the Nintendo 3DS the readers focus has shifted to the sublime Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch which has made its debut at number one. The period counted is from 27 July – 02 August.

  1. Super Mario Odyssey (Switch) – 522
  2. Pokémon Ultra Sun Moon (3DS) – 385
  3. Xenoblade 2 (Switch) – 298
  4. Metroid Samus Returns (3DS) – 214
  5. Shin Megami Tensei: Deep Strange Journey (3DS) – 199
  6. Fire Emblem Musou (n3DS) – 182
  7. Sekaiju to Fushigi no Dungeon 2 (3DS) – 179
  8. Fire Emblem Musou (Switch) – 174
  9. Tantei Jinguji Saburo: Ghost of the Dusk (3DS) – 91
  10. Fire Emblem New Work (Switch) – below 78
  11. Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. (Switch) – below 78
  12. Dragon Quest XI: Sugisarishi Toki o Motomete (Switch) – below 78



  1. Looks like Monster Hunter will be a fail. Already over one million people bought it and they don’t care much about the Nintendo Switch edition. Well… Capcom learn to do new games, you are late to the party this time (like anyone except indies and Nintendo, well Ubisoft did something too with Mario + Rabbids).

    1. Notice how Monster Hunter World isn’t there at all? That should be even more worrying than XX. Heck there’s games we know absolutely nothing about like Fire Emblem and Dragon Quest.

  2. “Metroid Samus Returns (3DS) – 214”
    damn son! metroid is sparking some interest in the japanese community right now (even though it’s only no.4). Hopefully this points towards good sales as if the game does well we could get a metroid 5 finally!

  3. Heh. I was just talking with some friends tonight about Odyssey. Can’t believe how close we are to release! Only a little over 2 months. So excited. And Sonic Mania next week! This has been a great year for games.

  4. Make a Metroid for Switch!!! I know it’s coming next year, but a new sidescroller for this year to satisfy us fans

    1. There isn’t nearly enough time to make a whole new 2d metroid for the switch for this year. Maybe in about 2-3 years if samus returns sells well they could make a new 2D one for the switch. Games take a while to make unfortunately and if samus returns doesn’t sell well, I don’t think it’ll ever happen sadly.
