Final Fantasy 16 is Famitsu’s Most Wanted Game: Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 16 game has received a lot of attention since it announced. The large community surrounding the series seems eager to learn more about the game.
Famitsu is a Japanese gaming magazine that has voted on the most exciting release of 2022. The readers chose the winner of the Final Fantasy.
Famitsu’s “most wanted” game chart features this news. The community votes on the games they are most excited to play. Despite the fierce competition, Bayonetta 3, Gran Turismo 7, and Gran Turismo 7 in the mix, Final Fantasy16 won with 625 votes.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 6 years since Final Fantasy 15 was released. The franchise’s loyal fan base looks pretty significant. The promise of Spring 2022 for Final Fantasy 16 is also a possibility, which will undoubtedly have helped the hype engines.

It’s also interesting to note that the game beat many other big releases slated for 2022.
FromSoftware’s Elden Ring was only able to reach 12th place, while the next iteration in the cult-classic Gran Turismo series nestled at 9th. Zelda 2 got 5th place.
Splatoon3, Bayonetta3 were in third and second, respectively. This shows that Final Fantasy 16 has been strangely absent in Square Enix’s 2022 launch schedule. However, it still has enough organic power to beat almost all its competitors, regardless of genre.
Final Fantasy 16’s main story was completed in October 2021. However, there are still very few details about the game. This could be a positive sign for Square Enix’s story and a solid way to keep its fans interested in its premise.
This is a remarkable showing for Square Enix’s flagship franchise. However, it’s important to remember that these results very localize. It may be that Final Fantasy 16 has a dedicated fantasy game and is seemingly devoid of any science-fiction elements.
Famitsu, an Asian-oriented magazine, reflected in these results.
Final Fantasy 16 is currently in development for PS5.
