CONFIRMED: Final Fantasy XIII Scores 39/40 in Famitsu

GOONL!NE can confirm that Final Fantasy XIII has been given a 39/40 in the latest Famitsu. It was rumored earlier.

As our friends at UFFF points out, it’s scored more then FFIX, FFVII, FFVIII, which scored 38. It ties with FFX on the 39, but narrowly misses out on the 40, which FFXII managed a couple of years ago.

UFFF also translated some early quotes from the review:

The story is substantial like no FF before it” and “battles based around changing characters’ roles are fresh and highly strategic.”

You’ll be sorry if you don’t play this!”

Scan is after the break. The game is out next week in Japan.
