Famitsu gives Smash Bros perfect score

SSBBMake me a promise. Promise me that you’ll read the entire article before you go running off screaming the praises of Smash Bros all over the internet. Deal? OK.

TheTanooki.com has gotten their hands on a scan of the latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu. At the end of the SSBB review, a sea of hiragana, katakana, and kanji, we can discern four Arabic numbers. 10. 10. 10. 10.

A perfect score. The game will now join the ranks of only six other games in history to receive a perfect score from Famitsu: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Soulcalibur, Vagrant Story, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Nintendogs, Final Fantasy XII, and, Super Smash Bros. Brawl. A distinguished list, to be sure.

Some will say that big name–big release games are reviewed by Famitsu with the reader in mind and that they take this into consideration when they review their games.

Whether this scenario is true or not is up for speculation, but in any event a perfect score of 40 is still an attention grabber no matter how you slice it.
