The very first review of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD has now been shared by Japanese publication, Famitsu, with western reviews still a few hours away from publication at the time of writing.

Famitsu’s scoring system has four different reviewers rate the game out of ten; in this case, the magazine’s reviewers opted for scores of eight, nine, nine, and eight, resulting in an overall score of 34/40 (thanks, Ryokutya2089 / Gematsu).

The Switch rerelease has had plenty of new quality-of-life features added since the original’s 2011 debut on Wii, with quick tweaks hopefully making the overall experience that bit smoother.

We’ll post our very own review of the game for you later today, so make sure to stay glued to the site to read our thoughts. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD launches exclusively on Switch on 16th July – and you can pre-order it now.
