Spoiler

The top crust gets a bit better defined. Shovel Knight remains on top, but now co-reigns with Drakengard 3. Drakengard didn’t enter as a favorite, but its songs have been very hard to take down and it is well-positioned to go deep as the rounds pick up. Just below these two we have Undertale, Mario Kart 8, and Super Mario 3D World, all games that entered on top and have weathered the storm to remain in the mix.

Going a bit lower, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is now our only remaining FF game, outlasting XIV, XV, and various spin-offs. Sonic: After The Sequel is still in it, but Mega Man Unlimited is not, leaving Sonic as the champion of that little fangame faceoff. And, Shuttle Rush is still here, meaning the “Shinigami will get an OUYA game into the top 64” prophecy has been fulfilled.
