There is no doubt that Final Fantasy XVI arouses great interest in the world of videogames. It is a legendary saga, but this new installment announced in 2020 does not yet have an official launch date marked on the calendar. In fact, this week they confirmed that the effects of the pandemic have caused a delay in development, and they call us in the spring to find out more information.

Famitsu makes this list periodicallyWhether or not we see it in 2022, the truth is that we are talking about game most awaited by the Japanese. The prestigious Japanese publication Famitsu has produced one of its usual surveys asking players about the games they win the most, and the title of Square Enix occupies the first place of the ranking.

There are many more games, but if something surprises is the second position. We could hope that the sequel to Breath of the Wild would be surpassed by Final Fantasy, since after all it is a very important saga in the history of video games, but the work of Nintendo is not in the second drawer of the podium. That place is occupied, however, by Bayonetta 3, the long-awaited return of Platinum Games. It should also be clarified that the votes for versions, which explains why Elden Ring, for example, appears so low.
