Famitsu, one of, if not the biggest Japanese video game magazine in existence, has reviewed Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, thanks to Andriasang. Now, if you are not familiar with how Famitsu scores work, basically there are four reviewers who give the game a score out of ten. Then each score is added together to give an overall score of forty. Quite simple, actually.

So how did Ni No Kuni fare in Famitsu eyes? Well here were the scores from each reviewer:

    1. Reviewer 1: 8
    1. Reviewer 2: 9
    1. Reviewer 3: 10
    1. Reviewer 4: 9

That’s a total score of 36 out of a possible 40, which is an outstanding score. Wow, one reviewer gave it a ten. Must have been impressed. Also, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Subbed Edition was also released. It had received 10, 10, 9, 10 for a total of 39/40. This is very surprising as first person shooters are not popular in Japan, let alone Western developed games, save a fair few. Square Enix publishes Call of Duty in Japan.

Here are the other games reviewed in this week’s Famitsu, including Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Saints Row: The Third and even Battlefield 3:

    1. One Piece Gigant Battle! 2 (DS): 8, 8, 9, 8
    1. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger Atsumete Henshin! 35-Sentai! (DS): 7, 7, 6, 6
    1. Maple Story DS (DS): 7, 7, 7, 7
    1. Miss Princess (DS): 8, 7, 8, 7
    1. Shinobi 3D (3DS): 7, 7, 7, 7
    1. The Sims 3 Pet (3DS): 7, 7, 6, 6
    1. BattleField 3 (PS3/Xbox 360): 9, 9, 9, 9
    1. The Sims 3 Pet (PS3/Xbox 360): 8, 8, 8, 8

    1. Saints Row The Third (PS3/Xbox 360): 9, 9, 9, 9
Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
