In a recent issue of Famitsu the famous Japanese weekly gaming news magazine, there was a popularity poll for Final Fantasy characters. Basically Famitsu asked fans what Final Fantasy characters they would like to see appear in an upcoming Kingdom Hearts game. Obviously this excludes characters like Cloud or Sephiroth which have already made appearances in the series.
After a total of 990 male and female fans voted, the poll results were quite surprising.
Here are the Top 5 highest voted characters:
- Noctis (237 votes)
- Lightning (201 votes)
- Zidane (81 votes)
- Chocobos (30 votes)
- Bartz (22 votes)
Seems like Lightning is still very popular in Japan and Noctis was very close and won by just 36 more votes. Curious how Bartz managed to beat Terra, Cecil and Kefka one would think those characters would be up there in the Top 5 in terms of popularity. It will be interesting to see what new Final Fantasy characters make an appearance in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 once it releases.
