Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Receives Perfect Score From Famitsu

Another magazine has given The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild a perfect score. Famitsu, Japan’s longest running video game magazine, has only given out 24 perfect scores (including this one) over its lifetime. To obtain a perfect score, each of the four reviewers has to give the game a 10 out of 10.

Last week, the notoriously hard-reviewing magazine EDGE also gave Breath of the wild a perfect 10. Sure, these are only two sources for reviews, but it bodes well for the title. Other games reviewed in this issue of Famitsu include:


Dragon Quest Heroes I-II (Switch) 9/9/9/9
For Honor (PS4/XBO) – 8/9/9/9
Blaster Master Zero (Switch / 3DS) – 8/8/8/8
The Brookhaven Experiment (PS4) – 8/8/8/8
Ys Origin (PS4) – 7/7/8/8
Super Bomberman R (Switch) – 8/7/8/7
Pirate Pop Plus (Wii U / 3DS) – 6/6/6/6


For comparison, here are the other titles to receive perfect scores in Famitsu:
