Famitsu Readers Reveal Their Most Wanted Titles in Recent Survey

While it goes without saying that sometimes Western and Eastern gaming preferences are not always aligned, we here at Hardcore Gamer like to think that we enjoy many of the same types of titles as our Japanese counterparts. Thus, it’s always of special interest to get a glimpse at what kinds of games are being played and/or looked forward to internationally. In a recent Famitsu survey, it was shown off just which upcoming titles are being anticipated the most. Listed below is that very poll, which certainly has some surprises on it, as well as the usual suspects. Take a gander at it and become more cultured. Don’t say we never gave you anything.
