In Japan right now, gamers are being (or are about to be) bombarded with all sorts of good games. As such, Famitsu’s review scores have hit the interwebs and we’re here to relay the message of how the Japanese are taking to these new titles. Below are the games with their respective four-scores review, ranked from highest to lowest.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies (3DS) – 10/9/10/8
Fantasy Life Link (3DS) – 9/9/8/9
Dragon’s Crown (PS3/PSV) – 9/8/9/9
Race Driver Grid 2 (PS3/360) – 9/8/8/8
The Witch and The Hundred Knights (PS3) – 8/8/8/7
Hoppe Cyan Tsukutte Asonde Puni Puni Town !! (3DS) – 8/8/7/7
XBlaze Code: Embryo (PS3) – 8/8/8/6
Toki No Kizuna: Hanamusubi Tsuzuri (PSP) – 8/7/8/6
Beast Saga Saikyou Gekitotsu Colosseum! (3DS) – 7/7/6/6
Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi Extra (PS3) – 6/7/7/6
Chibi Devi! 2 Mahou no Yume Ehon (3DS) – 7/7/7/5
Looking at that list, we see at least five games that we will be importing and/or playing upon release here in North America. It’s great to see Phoenix Wright getting such praise; the same goes for the multiplayer version of Level-5’s breakout success Fantasy Life. Although Dragon’s Crown scored high marks, we’re not all that surprised, as we expected it to do so. Truthfully, those numbers merely have made us want the game even more. August can’t come soon enough, that’s for sure.
