Japanese gamers asked to rank their most anticipated games of 2011 yield up a list headed not by some blockbuster RPG as might be expected, but by none other than Ore no Imouto, backed up by plenty of other anime-based games.
The ranking, as compiled by Dengeki:
1. Ore no Imouto PSP (PSP)
2. The Last Story (Wii)
3. Valkyria Chronicles 3 (PSP)
4. To Aru Majutsu no Index (PSP)
5. Amagami (PSP)
6. Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy(PSP)
7. Gyakuten Kenji 2 (DS)
8. Catherine (PS3/360)
9. Rune Factory Origins (PS3/Wii)
10. Fantasy Star Portable 2 (PSP)
The closeness of Dengeki to the anime world probably accounts for the strong showing from anime-styled games, and the year-end dating of the survey appears to have just missed the mass of 3DS related game announcements made recently – Love Plus at the very least would otherwise likely feature.
