The Game Awards

With each passing year, The Game Awards cements itself as one of the biggest presentations in gaming nowadays with the number of viewers growing. However, some have criticized the show for its pacing, awards, and excess of sponsors.

It’s undeniable though that a lot of memorable moments have come about during The Game Awards, and quite a few of them have been Nintendo-related. With this year’s presentation happening soon, I thought it would be nice to reflect on five great Nintendo moments at the show, which covers announcements as well as a couple of other memories. You can check out the full video below.

Nintendo has always been a big supporter of The Game Awards. Going back to the show’s debut, former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime attended every single year and the company was represented on the advisory board. It’s also been home to big announcements like Bayonetta 3, Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and more.

In a recent Reddit AMA, The Game Awards creator and producer Geoff Keighley spoke further about Nintendo’s backing. Keighley revealed that late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata personally told him that the Big N would always be sure to support the show, which meant a lot to him. Keighley noted that The Game Awards wouldn’t be what it is without Iwata and Reggie.

The Game Awards 2018 have come to a close, and winners across all categories have been revealed.

Here’s the full lineup:

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime will be appearing during The Game Awards tomorrow, show creator and host Geoff Keighley confirmed during a live stream today.

Reggie will actually be appearing in all three of The Game Awards thus far. He was there in 2014 as Nintendo featured Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Maker, and Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Nintendo didn’t have any content or trailers last year, but Reggie was back to honor the legacy of the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.

This year, Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be returning in a big way. It will not only be featured during The Game Awards pre-show, but during the actual show as well.

By the way, here’s a new promo for The Game Awards:
