It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Dragon Quest XI remains at the top in its last week, and Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon are in the top ten now despite having seen relatively nothing of the games so far.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between July 13 and July 19.

Limited Run Games puts out physical versions of smaller games that normally wouldn’t receive a retail release. Digital games, niche titles, and others along those lines are given an opportunity to be purchased by collectors.

Originally, Limited Run wanted to have its first Switch release ready sometime this summer. But those plans changed after Nintendo decided to focus on publishers involved with bigger print runs.

Below are the latest Nintendo products that can be currently pre-ordered at retailers:

When Rime eventually makes its way to Switch, Amazon Spain will be selling a special release. The retailer is currently taking pre-orders for the Rime Collector’s Edition.

The package naturally contains a copy of the game. Aside from that, you’ll also receive an exclusive box, an art book, and a map of the island.

You can pre-order the Rime Collector’s Edition here. For those interested, it can be imported to the United States.

Thanks to axel for the tip.

This has been a big week for Lost Sphear. The RPG received an October release date in Japan, and a late January 2018 launch in the west.

Famitsu also had coverage of Lost Sphear in its latest issue. Square Enix actually covered most of the news in English through a post on the PlayStation Blog. Along with characters Sherra and Obaro, we’re introduced to the mechanized armor Vulcosuit.

Here’s the full rundown:

Gust has prepared another new video for Nights of Azure 2, which primarily focuses on the game’s various characters. Have a look at it below.

At San Diego Comic-Con last week, SEGA hosted a special behind the scenes panel for Sonic Mania. Many fans were unable to attend, but thanks to a recording, the full event is now available for viewing. Check it out below.

The latest issue of Famitsu has shared a listing of the top 30 best-selling games in Japan for the month of June 2017. You can check out the full results below.

Select GameStop stores hosted a special Splatoon 2 event last weekend. You could stop by and play the game, get some color changing cups, and more.

Site contributor Andrew was on hand at the event, and snapped a few photos for us. Check out our images below, including a look at those color changing cups.

It was nearly a week ago that Walmart took pre-orders for the Super NES Classic – or so we thought. The retailer ended up pulling the plug on reservations a few days ago.

In an email sent to customers, Walmart said that pre-orders went up “due to a technical glitch”. That’s fine and all, but those who thought they were lucky enough to score the system were dissatisfied that their orders were cancelled.
