Japan’s go-to gaming publication Famitsu released its latest issue and it’s starting to make its way to readers’ hands. Within is the first review for one of this month’s many Nintendo published Switch releases. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening shouldn’t see any English language review coverage for a few more days at least, but the numbers provided here speak for themselves. 

As provided by Gematsu, Link’s Awakening received a total score of 35/40. Per Famitsu’s review style, that total comes from a panel of four each rating it out of ten. For the person by person breakdown, that’s a score of 9, 9, 9, and 8 all together. It’s definitely a promising early showing for the game, returning to players’ hands on September 20th.
