The Game Awards 2020 is officially in the books. This year’s show aired on Thursday, featuring the latest game reveals, announcements, and of course, actual awards.

Each year we’re always curious what Nintendo will bring to the table as you can never really guess. This time around, the Big N only really had one announcement: that being Sephiroth coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Capcom actually had quite a bit of Switch news to share between Ghosts ‘N Goblins Resurrected, Capcom Arcade Stadium, and Monster Hunter Rise (which got a new trailer and upcoming demo). There were a few other Switch announcements with Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut, Shady Part of Me, Endless Dungeon, and Evil Dead: The Game.

We’re a couple of days removed from The Game Awards, so what’d you think of the show? How did you feel about the announcements and winners? Let us know in the comments below.

It might have been a bit easy to lose in all of the excitement of The Game Awards, but Nintendo released a minute long video looking over different indie games on the Switch. It included a couple of games that were up for awards (Hades and Ori and the Will of the Wisps) as well as past winners such as Untitled Goose Game.

Check out the full trailer below.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, there was a Switch firmware update that didn’t have folders. Galen has problems with the image transfer process, but take that with a grain of salt. Galen also finally played something other than Animal Crossing and Destiny – Hades! The Game Awards 2020 are next week, so we made a couple of predictions this week. And Universal Studios Japan announced the opening date for Super Nintendo World. But…isn’t it still unsafe to open during a pandemic? Capitalism at its finest.
