We’re just days away from exploring Koholint Island all over again in the Switch remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and we couldn’t be more excited. If you’re also thinking about jumping into the new release, you’ll be pleased to know that the early signs are looking good.

We’ve already gushed about the game during our hands-on time at E3, but the first full review is now in. Popular Japanese magazine Famitsu has given it a score of 35/40, with a complete reviewer score of 9/9/9/8 (thanks, Gematsu).

If you’re unaware, Famitsu has four different reviewers take on the game at the same time, hence the four different scores (which are all out of ten). These scores are then combined, with that total being marked out of a possible 40. By almost scoring nines across the board, we’re hopeful that the game will be every bit as enjoyable as we thought it would be.

Of course, we’ll be testing out that theory in our very own review of the game for you right here on the site closer to release, so make sure to keep an eye out for that if you’re interested in learning more.

Zelda: Link’s Awakening launches on 20th September. Will you be getting it?
