It does not matter cataclysms in progress, nothing will dislodge Dragon Quest VIII and Final Fantasy XII of the first places of the classification of heart of Nipponese. Except perhaps their exits, from this fact the place of number 1 will be finally released as of November 27, dates official from the availability of the RPG to the good taste of TORIYAMA Akira. The signal does not move much as a whole since the first 7 places are the same ones as last week. One however notes 3 new entries for this edition, in 17th, 19th and 20th positions, including two on Game Cube, giving again a little presence to the machine of Nintendo. It will be interesting, once Tokyo Game Show finished and first plays PSP and NDS touched longitudinally into broad and transversely, to note if some of these titles manage to rise in the very closed club of Famitsu Most Wanted Games.
Ancora, ancora ed ancora Final Fantasy XII e Dragon Quest VIII. Solo Square-Enix.
