Persona 5, Mario Kart 8, Final Fantasy XV Among Famitsu’s Most Wanted Games

By   /   May 12, 2014

The famous Japanese magazine Famitsu has revealed a new list of the most-wanted titles that will be coming to Japan in the future, and results of that list are not much surprising.

First on the list is Persona 5 with 678 votes, which has been in development for quite some time now and is slated for a winter release in Japan, exclusively for PlayStation 3.

Second up is Mario Kart 8 with 614 votes that will release exclusively for Wii U at the end of this month. The second place for the game is not a surprise at all considering its great popularity and fan base.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate holds the third spot with just 7 votes behind the second placed Mario Kart 8. This enhanced version of the game is in development for 3DS and is scheduled to release this fall.

Fourth spot in the list goes to Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, which is also a 3Ds exclusive but the best part is that the Japanese community won’t have to wait too long to get their hands on it, as it is going to release on 5th of June.
