Famitsu Reveals Near-Perfect Score For Super Mario 3D World

super_mario_3d_world_charactersJapanese gaming publication Famitsu has revealed a near-perfect score for the highly anticipated Super Mario 3D World. From four reviewers, the Wii U game scored two 9’s and two 10’s equalling a terrific score of 38/40. It wasn’t quite a “purrfect” score however, but for comparison’s sake Super Mario Galaxy received a 38/40, while Super Mario Galaxy 2 obtained a neat 37/40, so the newest Mario adventure is clearly hoping to claw its way up to reside amongst the greatest. Make sure you check out the review scores for other titles which are featured below.

    1. Haha and some idiots thought Sonic Flop World would be better! We all know how THAT turned out! Haha pathetic.

      1. that’s because Sonic is one of the biggest failures in video game history he reminds me of Mike Tyson he came out strong but now he’s a complete and utter failure Sonic the Hedgehog deserves to fail on any and all consoles.

  1. That’s great, it’s going to be a great Christmas with friends and family playing this! I hope Nintendo advertise this enough to make people aware of this and the Wii U itself!

    1. HAHAHAHAHAHA MY SIDE HURTS!!!!! HHAHAHAHAAAAA PLEASE HAAAAAAAHAHAHAH!!!!! oh my GOSH STOP!!!!! IT HURTS PLEASE!!!!! for the love of god HELP!!!!! hahahahaha STOP!!!! SO FUNNY HAAA HAHAAHA * throws up* HAHAHAHAHAH genius PUUURRRRFECT MEOW BITHCH!!! rolling on the the floor playing with yarn with cat suite* HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! *throws up again*

      bowd the hdype trwwain!!!!!!!!!!! come on let gow do camp snoopyyyyy!!!


      1. the problem is. all reviews suck. everyone that reviews games reviews based on different rules to one another. The industry is fucked due to the “all important score”

      1. Yea im just waiting for a few more reviews. I can’t take famitsu serious when they give my little pony 3ds a 9 lmao

    1. hahahahah!!!! you mean the same reviewer that gave sonic failed world four 9’s!!!! this game will be the same fate as sonic failed world, the worst 3d mario yet.

      might as well wait for a real review.

        1. what the fuck are you talking about. everyone knows that famitsu is the king of bullshit of reviewing. they will give anything a reasonable score, like somebody said above, they gave my little pony a 9!!! hahahahah at delusional fanboy!!!!! have fun with the latest dumbed down disappointment from nintendo. “the successor of the great 64 sunshine and galaxy!!!” a 3ds game with a cat suite……. how great.

          1. Ignoring if famitsu gave Mario a 6 you wouldn’t have called them bullshit but would agree with famitsu.

        1. it probably wont be a bad game, just another dumbed down game for the kiddies yet again from nintendo. im just saying famitsu would give a shit in a box a 36 out of 40!!! *cough* sonic lost world *hack*. might as wait for a reliable review.

          1. Yeah I sort of agree with you there. Ill still be buying super Mario 3d world as the multiplayer is pure mayhem though.

            1. it just seems that nintendo just likes to dumb down all of there games now for babies, dktf is supposed to be easy!! come on, that was like there only hard one. back before the wii, there games were harder and the nes ones were really hard and yoshis island for snes is a good challenge as well, most of there franchises were not just easy as hell and they still catered towards kids.. now they dumb down everything wear you get zelda SS. more like handholding and wont stop bothering you.

              1. Yeah but at least a Link Between Worlds goes in the right direction because I’ve heard from a lot of people that that game doesn’t hold your hand at all. I wish they made all Zelda games like that but it’s a start

              2. Ignoring you don’t like hard games because you didn’t buy Pikmin or W101. But you bought Luigi U knowing that wasn’t hardcore.

          2. I agree with you that Sonic is a pathetic franchise but how can you criticize the Mario franchise that series is one of the best series in video game history and constantly the game in that series wind up being legendary well received game, with sales to back it up.

      1. I did not know that Sonic games received four 9’s. although I believe that this Mario games is very very good and I do believe that these scores truly reflect the awesomeness of this title . I think sonic deserve a much lower score than what it was received infact it does not deserve a total score higher than 20

      1. Ignoring neither did Galaxy neither. Also ignoring what icy boy said that they are bullshit. Yet because it didn’t get a 10, you don’t want to be live ice boy. If It gotten a 6 you and ice boy would have both agreed that the review was accurate.

        1. Stop assuming you broken record!!! You don’t know what I would have said if it got a 6, all you can do is speculate

  3. you mean the same place that is overly generous and gave sonic flop world four 9’s!!!! when every other place gave it the rightful horrible reviews that it truly deserves?? yeah i dont think this non real 3d mario game that is supposedly as easy as taking candy from a baby *cough* nintendo fanboys *HACK* is going to be almost perfect worthy.
    maybe if i was to run around naked with a cat suite while rolling on the floor playing with yarn and laughing “harr darr yeeeaaarrrr!!!!, he hhee hhahahah ddererr fun it is, we are such a happy family, famillly fwuun timehh haha!!!!” play with my mother and some other family members smiling up and down spinning our wii motes around with poop in our diapers like the rest of the retards on these pathetic us advertisements, it would be a perfect game. i would have to be wasted and get laced with mario’s mushrooms (ooohhh im seeing ffun time ha ha heh…..) to think that and wake up in the hospital the next day dying in the bed. to much…….. coping………. with stupid game uuuhhhhhlllllllllll………..



    dead. i hope that family fun time was worth it because you died a retard.

    this game will be the worst 3d mario yet, just watch. its a 3ds game. another fail by nintendo they are a broken record.

    1. Wow Icky… you leaving these really long love letters for your self? You do know everyone on here takes you for a fucking joke and could give two shits for what you think or say. What’s also with you and calling people baby’s? You do know how retarded that sounds… right?

      Clearly you have some sort of abandonment issues as a child cause you feel the need to keep bringing up baby’s every time a Nintendo article pop’s up. Daddy run out on your mother cause he knew how much of piece of shit you were?

      Oh well… Keep trolling Nintendo sites… I’m sure you will gain your fathers affection some how…

      1. please like his father would even stick around for his birth or spawning or hatching or whatever the hell he crawled from, he is like Nintendo’s very own clown that’s we he is obsessed with children what else are clowns for? he seriously is messed up in the head,

    2. Except, Sonic Lost World -didn’t- suck. You seem to spout nothing but asinine insults about it without any actual criticisms other than “baybeez lawl.”

      First off, let’s get one thing through your head: Accessible does not equal “kiddie.” Nintendo’s games appeal to -all- ages, and are not dumbed down. You’ve simply matured as a gamer (as much as I resent saying you, of all people, have matured). They’re still in the same vein as, say, Mario 64. If you played M64 again, you’d probably find it similarly simple. Still a fantastic game.

      So, to reiterate: Accessible != Kiddie.

      Educate yourself, and learn the damn difference.


    3. Shut the fuck up, you trolling little twat.

      We get it, you hate Nintendo and the wiiu, you try to mask it with the whole, “Nintendo used to make good games” bullshit, like its suppose to add some legitimacy to your troll attempts, but people can see through that.

      Generally good conversation, oh look there’s that twat ice, spewing some negative shit about Nintendo.

      Give it a rest….

    4. Ignoring you failed to detail why Ghost was shit. If it was a Nintendo exclusive you would have brought up the game numerous of times like you do 3D Mario ever 25 seconds. But because COD Ghost is activision you ain’t going to bring that game up.

    1. That’s the thing, I have seen the gameplay videos. All I’ve seenso far are bite sized levels and zero challenge. I hope all levels are not like this. Famitsu are renowned for giving overly inflated scores that fly in the face of most other reviews. We’ll see but it seems extremely casual as all their cringy and embarrassing ads showcase. “The Pitch” being the worst offender.

      1. Yeah the Japanese commercial is a lot better. I hate how the are focusing on dumb family commercials here.

        1. Agreed but aleast Nintendo showed gameplay instead of half million dollar commercial for killzone which showed none

    1. Ignoring you just conflicted without self: First makning a big deal out of a 38/40 now all of a sudden you want to believe famitsu is full of it. Make up your mind.

        1. Yes it is because you held is accountable when it didn’t get a 10/10 but now you want to blame the rating.

  4. The only reason iceazeama hasn’t been banned yet is because he provides the site with clickbait articles.

    1. NSMBU can be called casual and easy too, if your main goal is to run through the game. But findig and collecting all the secrets was really hard, and I’m hoping for the same challenge here!

  5. the ranting robots gave this game an 8 point something out of 10… i think famitsu has gone too soft towards this game… (or maybe its just that those talking robots cant be trusted?)… i’m still getting the game though :)

  6. For those who cares, just wait until other reviews comes out.

    As for me, personally, I don’t give a shit about reviews. I still picking this game on day one even if ign gives it a 6/10

  7. I love how some people are mad that this game got a good review.

    Pathetic, just because you don’t like a game you have never played and never will play, doesn’t mean its garbage, no matter how badly you want it to be.

    Why does it bother you that it got a good review? Is it your hate? Are you afraid all your old posts about how bad this game will be, will me you look more dumb than you already do?

    What the fuck is the difference? You hate filled mongloids will proclaim it to be a failure, even if your god site ign gave it a 9.8 and it sold well. You’re not going to buy it, so why does it matter? You just want to shit on someone’s parade?

    Fucking idiots like ice make this comment section a joke. Debating is one thing, but that’s not what goes on here. You have trolls slinging insults at Nintendo and if you disagree, then you’re an idiot.

    For the rest of you, judge for yourself, I think it looks fun, Tokyo ead has never let me down and I don’t think they’re going to start.

  8. Frankily given how I’ve seen Famitsu score certain games in the past, the fact that the SMG games didn’t get perfect scores is a travesty.

    1. I’m not buying it because of the gay cat suit and the fact that the game is made for 10 yr olds and younger and their moms.

  9. I’ve got the game preordered! It looks like a lot of fun, I’m looking forward to playing it with my friends. 3D platforming co-op– pretty greeeaaat. I hope.

    I honestly don’t really care about review scores all that much. I like to decide for myself.

    I dont expect this game to be a ground-breaking experience that’ll take me on an emotional journey but It’ll be fun! I already know that
