Japan Ranks Their Favourite Nintendo Franchises

Japanese publication My Navi has conducted a survey to find out exactly what Japan’s favourite Nintendo franchises are. The survey was split between male and female, and the results for the survey can be found below. Do you agree with the results? (3DS, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

I like how they have Mother (Earthbound) at number 7. Nintendo needs to get Mother 3 in north america/eu. It was released on GBA. I have never played it. I think the SNES Earthbound is getting held up on Virtual Console release because of all the pop culture references (example; melodies from Beatles songs) that need clearance. *sigh*

Anyway, great list.

No Golden Sun love makes me sad. One of my favorite Nintendo series and Id love to see a Golden Sun Wii U game

Isaac will hopefully be playable in the next Smash if that helps. He was already an Assist Trophy in Brawl.

The women say Rhythm Heaven is better than Fire Emblem, Metroid, Earthbound, and F-Zero.

I'd totally put Pokemon, Metroid and Animal Crossing ahead of Mario.

Also its a shame more Women don't like Metroid, with Samus being a great female character

Never realized how small of a franchise Metroid is over there, knew it was smaller than in the states but behind Fire Emblem and Mother.

Zelda is the best imo, not many games out there better than oot and link to the past.
