It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 moves up a spot, and Project Octopath Traveler appears for the first time.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between September 21 and September 27.

Some of the developers working on Sonic Forces such as Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka and producer Shun Nakamura have shared some information about the process of bringing the to Switch. That includes details about the game’s performance.

First up, Sonic Forces is officially 30 frames per second on Switch. Interestingly though, the controls are 60. Doing so still allows players to control Sonic in a precise manner. Since the game would become something different at 30 FPS, having the hybrid solution with the controls allowed the team to preserve gameplay.

Fire Emblem Warriors debuted in Japan last week. On Switch, the game sold a little over 40,000 copies. The New 3DS version also moved just under 20,000 units. Dengeki further adds that Fire Emblem Warriors sold through 50 percent of its initial shipment.

The one somewhat comparison we have is Hyrule Warriors. On Wii U, the game sold a bit under 70,000 units with a 57 percent sell-through. Later on, Hyrule Warriors Legends sold about 56,000 copies with a 60 percent sell-through.
