Famitsu (ファミ通 Famitsū?, formerly Famicom Tsūshin) is a line of Japanese video game magazines published by Enterbrain, Inc. and Tokuma. Currently, there are five Famitsū magazines: Shūkan Famitsū, Famitsū PS3 + PSP, Famitsū Xbox 360, Famitsū DS+Wii, and Famitsū Wave DVD. Shūkan Famitsū (週刊ファミ通?, lit. "Weekly Famitsū"), the original Famitsū publication, is considered the most widely read and respected video game news magazine in Japan.[2][3][4]

Shūkan Famitsū[edit]

Shūkan Famitsū concentrates on video game news, as well as video game reviews. The name Famitsū was originally an abbreviation of Famicom Tsūshin (ファミコン通信?, officially translated as the Famicom Journal); the magazine's original name came from the Family Computer, the Japanese name for the Nintendo Entertainment System, which was the dominant video game console in Japan during the 1980s. The first issue was published on June 6, 1986. Today, Shūkan Famitsū features multi-platform coverage. Shūkan Famitsū is published every Thursday with a circulation of 500,000 per issue.[1]

Necky the Fox[edit]

Famitsū magazine covers alternately feature pop idols or actresses on even-numbered issues and the Famitsū mascot, Necky (ネッキー Nekkī?) the Fox[5] in odd-numbered issues.[6] Year-end and special editions all feature Necky dressed as popular contemporary video game characters. Necky is the cartoon creation of artist, Susumu Matsushita, and he takes the form of a costumed fox.[7] The costumes worn by Necky reflect current popular video games. Necky's name was chosen according to a reader poll, and it derives from a complex Japanese pun: "Necky" is actually the reverse of the Japanese word for fox, kitsune (キツネ?), and his original connection to Famicom Tsūshin is intended to evoke the bark of the fox, the Japanese onomatopoeia of which is "kon kon" (コンコン?).[8]

Others[edit]

Famitsū publishes other magazines dedicated to particular consoles. Currently in circulation are:

  • Famitsū PS (ファミ通PS?) (formerly PlayStation Tsūshin), which reports on Sony platforms news (currently the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable).
  • Famitsū DS+Wii (ファミ通DS+Wii?), which report on Nintendo platforms (currently the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U). The magazine was formerly known as Famitsū 64 and then Famitsū Cube (among other variations of those two names) based on whatever platforms Nintendo was producing games for at the time.
  • Famitsū Xbox 360 (ファミ通Xbox?), which reports on Xbox and Xbox 360 news.
  • Famitsū Wave DVD (ファミ通WaveDVD?) (ファミ通 Wave DVD) is published monthly. Each magazine includes a DVD disc (NTSC Region 2) with video game footage. The magazine was originally called GameWave DVD.

Famitsū spin-offs that are no longer in circulation include:

  • Famitsū Bros. (ファミ通ブロス Famitsū Burosu?) (which concentrated on video game hints and strategy rather than actual news)
  • Satellaview Tsūshin (サテラビュー通信 Saterabyū Tsūshin?) (which covered the Satellaview)
  • Famitsū Sister (ファミ通Sister?) (which covered bishōjo games)
  • Famitsū DC (ファミ通DC?) (which covered the Dreamcast)
  • Virtual Boy Tsūshin (バーチャルボーイ通信 Bācharu Bōi Tsūshin?) (which covered the Virtual Boy, only one issue was ever published)

Scoring[edit]

Video games are graded in Famitsū by a panel of four video game reviewers. Each reviewer gives a score from 0 to 10, ten being the most). The scores of the four reviewers are then added up with a possible score of 40. From the twenty games awarded with a perfect score so far, three are for the Nintendo DS and five are for the Wii. The PlayStation 3 also has five games with a perfect score and the Xbox 360 has four, with both consoles having two titles in common. The others are for different platforms with only one title each. Franchises with multiple perfect score winners include The Legend of Zelda with three titles, Metal Gear and Final Fantasy with two titles each.

Every game but two with a perfect score so far are from a Japanese company, eight of them being published/developed by Nintendo, four by Square Enix, three by Sega, two by Konami and one by Capcom. The only two completely foreign games to achieve a perfect score so far are The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by Bethesda Softworks and Grand Theft Auto V, from Rockstar Games. Other foreign games that have achieved near-perfect scores are L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto IV – all three of which came from Rockstar Games; Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – all from Activision, although published by Square Enix in Japan; and Gears of War 3 from Epic Games. (Kingdom Hearts II is a joint effort between Square Enix and the U.S.-based Buena Vista Games.) Famitsū Wave DVD does not grade video games.
