I'm kind of surprised that Okamiden is so high up, given the disappointing sales the first game got in its homeland.

Nice to see Vs XIII in the top 5.

Also a bit surprised to see Monster Hunter 3rd is actually ahead of Pokemon, still though I don't think it will outsell Black and White combined but then who knows?

Got to agree on the crazyness of Last Remnant, and just the sheer power of Dragon Quest X to be number 3, behind only Monster Hunter and Pokemon and we haven't even seen a logo for the thing yet.

AFAIK it's never been offically confirmed as being canned, but any sane person would, by now, assume it's been scrapped

This is a top 30 from Famitsu readers, which does not necessarily include the breadth of the, uh, Pokemon fanbase.

No Kirby? I thought those games were like ridiculously popular in Japan. Also assuming Shadow Tower is actually Lost In Shadow, it doesn't make any sense for it to be on the list considering 1) it's already out and 2) it bombed horribly in its first week.

Nothing too surprising except maybe Dead Rising 2. Did the first one do well in Japan (bearing in mind it was an early-ish 360 release)? Just wondering what has sparked the interest.

Is it because as long as there are votes for the game it will stay in the list? For example look at The Last Remnant at #14.

Of course it doesn't but neither does it cover the entire spectrum of Monster Hunter fans either, so I stick by what I said.

Though you didn't have to go and make it creepy, the way you worded it made me think of the weird doujins where they have sex with the Pokemans damn it, all thanks to that damn Sonic topic.

Kids don't read Famitsu or don't bother voting for anything, that's why Pokemon is behind Monster Hunter Freedom 3.

After booting up my old copy of DQVIII again and starting from the beginning, my anticipation and desire to want DQX is ever stronger than before.

DQIX was okay but it really just felt like a spin-off...a really good and highly produced spin-off, but still it didn't feel like the DQ game I wanted especially after the excellent VIII.

But hope it doesn't take 4 years. Hope we get something by next Christmas and then maybe a few months later for the west...wow...that's still a long time.

It bombed something fierce, thanks to the CERO Z rating, but it had huuuuuuuuuuge word of mouth among the hardcore gamers. I'm not too surprised to see it listed.

Wow, Ninokuni (DS) above FFVersusXIII.

Now if only the PS3 version was close to the DS version ranking. Both look pretty fucking awesome.

PS: Ninokuni PS3 is more anticipated than FFVersusXIII for me personally. The Last Guardian is the only other Japanese PS3 game that is more wanted than Ninokuni PS3.

Awesome!

Although on a serious note - it's good to see "Ninokuni" at #4.:D
PS3: 10
PSP: 9
NDS: 6
Wii: 3
3DS: 1
360: 1

I was expecting Ninokuni PS3 to be higher but it's understandable since Ninokuni NDS is coming out first (December 2010).
