“Twitter’s popularity in Japan continues to play a role in what games people talk about locally and globally,” Rishi Chadha, global head of gaming partnerships at Twitter, told The Post. “The fandom from the region continues to drive conversation around many of the most tweeted about games in the world, showcasing that video games truly have no borders.”

For example, Final Fantasy, a Japan-native series that has not seen a new release in more than three years, climbed even higher in 2019, likely pushed by feverish anticipation for the March remake of the groundbreaking Final Fantasy 7.

Chadha said he expects Japan to further influence the conversation in 2020, especially since legendary fighting game tournament EVO takes place in Tokyo later this month. This summer the Intel Open World will precede the Tokyo Olympics and the Tokyo Game Show in the fall.

Fortnite still managed to be the second most tweeted-about game, with Final Fantasy coming in third. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Minecraft were the only other two games made in the West on the list.

FaZe Clan was the most tweeted about esports team, with G2 Esports and Cloud9 coming in second and third. To no one’s surprise, the League of Legends Worlds Championship was the most talked about esports event, with EVO 2019 and Fortnite World Cup falling next.

While esports events drew eyes, noncompetitive personalities dominated the conversation. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who occasionally participates in Fortnite tournaments but is better known for his streaming, can add another notch to his reputation as gaming’s most popular personality. Spanish YouTuber ElRubius, who has amassed billions of views over the years, comes in second, with Irish YouTuber Jack Septic Eye being third.
