Our readers are no doubt excited for Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch and it looks like Nintendo fans in Japan are just as pumped too!

Two major gaming magazines in Japan released their latest Nintendo Most Wanted charts recently, where they take votes from readers to compile the most wanted upcoming Nintendo games, and Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch topped both lists.

In the case of Nintendo Dream, it was a deadlocked tie race between Animal Crossing and Pokemon with Fire Emblem in a distant third place. With Famitsu’s list, Animal Crossing again topped the list with Fire Emblem in a fairly close second place finish.

Here are the top ten charts from each magazine:
