UK Magazine EDGE Names Nintendo Publisher Of The Year

Fire Emblem and Super Mario 3D World considered two of 2013's best games

Nintendo hasn't had the best year, what with the Wii U underperforming and third party support on the wane, but there have been some incredible highs to consider — including a robust performance by the 3DS and some amazing first-party releases.

As if to acknowledge Nintendo's continued dedication, UK magazine EDGE has named the company as Publisher of the Year in its latest issue.

Fire Emblem: Awakening and Super Mario 3D World were also listed as two of the year's best software releases, and a special mention was made to The Wonderful 101.

Hopefully 2014 will hold more commercial success for the Wii U while Nintendo maintains its typically high standard of software output.
