Famitsu’s Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Review Awards Perfect Score


After EDGE became the first publication to break cover with their The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild review, Japanese magazine Famitsu has now become the second.

That saw their Cross Review, a panel that is comprised of four reviewers that each provide their own individual score, award the maximum possible score of 40 to Link’s open-air adventure.

This is the 24th perfect score that Famitsu has awarded and is seemingly fitting, given that the first was given to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Nintendo 64.

The other Nintendo-related games that have achieved a perfect score include The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Nintendogs, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Dragon Quest IX: Sentinel of the Starry Skies, Monster Hunter Tri, Bayonetta, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Pokémon Black and Pokémon White, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Kid Icarus Uprising. Phew.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release exclusively on Nintendo Switch and Wii U worldwide on March 3rd.
