Most Wanted Results from August are LIVE!

Starting things off, in the isolated SKU box, several titles make strides up the chart. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 makes way back to its home at the top after Xenoblade Chronicles 3 retired last month. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth makes a jump into the top 5 (where it will likely be competing with XVI for the most votes over the next year). Soul Hackers 2 charges into the top 10 as well in its final month of eligibility. And last, Resident Evil 4's Remake jumps into the top 10 after last months official unveiling.

As far as Franchises go, I'm going to keep on doing this until we start winding down with multiple entries for series. This month we had several entries for Persona and for Final Fantasy. We even had several Marvel titles appear (Spiderman Remastered, Spiderman 2, The Wolverine, Midnight Suns) but it wasn't enough points to put any of those titles ahead of Persona 3 Portable. Final Fantasy continues to dominate while Persona slowly works its way up to the top 6. 

Final Fantasy 57 15
The Legend of Zelda 49 14
Bayonetta 36 10
Resident Evil 29 10
Starfield 24 7
Persona 23 8
God of War 23 7
Soul Hackers 20 6
Hogwarts Legacy 19 5
Splatoon 15 4

As far as games with release dates, we were lucky to have a month filled with big release dates being announced. After keeping us waiting for several years, I can gladly say we now have a release date for Bayonetta 3, which immediately pushed her to the top of the list of games with release dates. 

Bayonetta 3 October 28th
Resident Evil 4 March 24th
God of War: Ragnarok November 9th
Soul Hackers 2 August 25th
Splatoon 3 September 9th
Persona 5 Royal October 21st
Pokemon Scarlet/Violet November 18th
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Cowabunga Collection August 30th
Pac-Man World Re-PAC August 26th
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope October 20th
