NSMB Wii gets 40/40 from Famitsu

Having debuted in a respectable third place in the ELSPA GfK-ChartTrack All Formats Top 40 yesterday, Nintendo’s New Super Mario Bros Wii has been given top marks by weekly Japanese games mag Famitsu.

Mario’s latest becomes only the 13th game to ever receive the highly-coveted accolade, though it is the second in just a few weeks following the recent 40/40 score for Sega’s Bayonetta.

Things are slightly different on this side of the globe, however. Cult consumer mag Edge agreed with Famitsu’s enthusiasm for Bayonetta, giving it top marks, though it’s slightly less enamoured with NSMB Wii, giving it just 7/10.
