It is the end of the year, and that means it’s time for yearly awards. Unsurprisingly, Breath of the Wild was nominated for many. Unsurprisingly still, Breath of the Wild won many. However, what awards Breath of the Wild would win was a point of debate — until now, that is.
The Golden Joystick Awards, presented with OMEn by HP, hosted its 35th ceremony recently, and, despite great competition, Breath of the Wild has emerged with a stunning four awards. The five consist of Best Audio, Nintendo Game of the Year, Critic’s Choice Award, and, most impressively, Ultimate Game of the Year.
With glamorous reviews across the board for Breath of the Wild, many being perfect scores, it is no surprise that the game was a contender for Ultimate Game of the Year. Developer Eiji Aonuma and the development are honored their game “has won this prestigious award”.
Mr. Aonuma thanks fans in the United Kingdom for allowing this to happen.
“I’d like to deliver a big ‘thank you’ on behalf of the 300-plus staff who gave their all to create the game,” Mr. Aonuma announced in an official video regarding the award.
The developers of Breath of the Wild put countless time and effort in to making the highest quality game they could, rejuvenating the franchise entirely. Facing off against its highest competitor and rather similar game, Horizon: Zero Dawn, the latest installment in the Zelda franchise has pulled off one of the greatest feats a game can manage.
