Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Hoping to win the race
Nintendo's enjoyed a decent run in game award ceremonies during 2014, just reward for some world class titles that have been released in recent times. The company and exclusives on its hardware now have chances for more high-profile gongs in the upcoming Golden Joystick Awards.
Nintendo missed out on any wins in last year's event, but there are plenty of opportunities this time around — all awards are voted for by the public. In total there are 26 nominations related to Nintendo systems across 12 categories, a very decent haul. You can see the relevant nominees below, in which we've also included third party efforts either exclusive or significant to Nintendo systems.
Best Original Game
Best Indie Game
Best Visual Design
Best Gaming Moment
Mario Kart 8 — Luigi Death Stare
Best Handheld Game
Gaming Platform of the Year
Studio of the Year
Game of the Year
There are plenty of chances for the big N to celebrate some glory. You can view all of the details and — should you please — submit votes at the Golden Joystick website; voting closes on 20th October.
