Famitsu Reviews Nintendo Switch Games, Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Gets A Perfect Score

Japanese publication Famitsu has published its scores for a handful of long-awaited games with Zelda: Breath Of The Wild being one of them. Four different journalists give games a score out of 10 and in this case it was a clear win for Nintendo’s next instalment in the Zelda series. All four reviewers awarded it 10/10. Interestingly, they reviewed the Wii U version but I think it’s safe to say that the Switch version will be rewarded identically.

This marks the 24th game receiving a perfect score from Famitsu ever.

Below is a list of other titles that were reviewed in the issue:

  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild (NSW / Wii U) – 10 / 10 / 10 / 10
  • Dragon Quest Heroes I-II (NSW) 9/9/9/9
  • For Honor (PS4/XBO) – 8/9/9/9
  • Blaster Master Zero (NSW / 3DS) – 8/8/8/8
  • The Brookhaven Experiment (PS4) – 8/8/8/8
  • Ys Origin (PS4) – 7/7/8/8
  • Super Bomberman R (NSW) – 8/7/8/7
  • Pirate Pop Plus (Wii U / 3DS) – 6/6/6/6

I looks as though they favoured Dragon Quest Heroes I-II and Blaster Master Zero with the respective games receiving some promising scores themselves. Super Bomberman R had a slightly lower rating but still a solid outlook for a launch game on Nintendo Switch.



      1. ||I have foreseen it, mainly the final solution to the Xbot infection in our homeworld, they will be erased in the near future because we and the Sonyans are annihilating them everywhere…||

          1. ||No, simply stating the overall situation of the war…||

  1. NintenDOMINATING the competition with zelda ;) bend over everyone else!!1!

    But seriously, it’s nice to see the game getting good scores so far.

    1. ||It’s cancelled and deleted from existence, unless we acquire it and make it even better…||

      ||No Scalebound for you Xbots…||

    2. Better than a 10/10? What are you on? Are you actually that ignorant that you think anything can be better than a Perfect score. Games can match Breath of the Wild in Review Score, but can’t surpass it you ignorant waste of space.

  2. So Zelda is officially the highest rated franchise in Japan… It has more perfect famitsu scores than any other franchise in history.
    OoT – Perfect
    Wind Waker – Perfect
    Skyward Sword – Perfect
    Breath of the Wild – Perfect

    Zelda (4 games)
    MGS (3 games)
    Final Fantasy (3 games)

  3. As a huge Zelda fan who has been greatly looking forward to this since its conception, seeing all these reviewing firms giving such positive impressions, and now starting to follow up with some of their highest ever review scores, is so wonderful to see!
