Day of Crisis gets Famitsu thumbs up

First review eases concerns with 34/40 score

We'll be honest with you. After long delays and total silence from Nintendo, we're not expecting much from Disaster: Day of Crisis. Surely a game is only kept tucked away like this if it's a bit of a dog, right?

Not if the first review is anything to go by. Japanese publication Famitsu has scored Nintendo's mysterious third-person adventure a whopping 34/40, getting 9/10 scores from two of the magazine's four reviewers, according to NeoGAF.

Unfortunately, translations from Japan fail to detail exactly what is said in the review, but a score like that pretty much speaks for itself.

The game's out over here on October 24, which means we should see earlier versions of it soon.
