GDC 2023

2023 Game Developers Choice Awards nominees

Organizers of the Game Developers Conference today unveiled the lineup of nominees for its 2023 Awards.

There’s not a whole lot of representation when it comes to Nintendo-published games, but a few Switch games are featured. Games like Tunic, Neon White, and more can be found throughout the various categories.

The full list of 2023 Game Developers Choice Awards nominees are as follows:


Kirby and the Forgotten Land GDC 2023

Nintendo games have been represented at GDC over the years with a few developer panels, and we’ll be seeing this again in 2023 as part of a session dedicated to Kirby and the Forgotten Land. The same event will also touch on Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe “and how they reimagined the 2D gameplay and the world of the multiplayer Wii classic.”

Shinya Kumazaki and Tatsuya Kamiyama will both be in attendance. During the session, the two will be “discussing Kirby and the Forgotten Land one year after its release – looking at how they brought traditional Kirby gameplay into a 3D world, as well as examining some of the new features in the game, including the fan-favorite Mouthful Mode.” The event “is for any game developers interested in the history and legacy of one of the cutest (and most adaptable!) characters in video game history, as well as where Kirby and their series are headed in the future.”
