The usual disclaimer applies: "It’s Famitsu". But at the same time it's good to see Bravely Default II and Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection review well. IDK, GNGR might be a mediocre game, there's something about it that doesn't seem right. While it did alright here in Famitsu, I can see Western reviewers knock some more points off if they aren't blinkered by nostalgia.

GnGR is getting a lot of good reviews.

I was gonna say that’s great. I thought it was one of those games where Famitsu is the first review score, with Western reviews a bit later. But I had a look on Metacritic, and the average is 74%. What you've posted are the best scores.

That's a lot of good reviews. Ultimately, I personally don't really care what reviews say about anything. I form my own opinion.
