FUN FACT: Geoff Keighley is Canadian.

The Game Awards take place this week and host Geoff Keighley has revealed that Nintendo is going to hold a special eShop sale to mark the event.

It's not known exactly which titles will be included in the sale but it would be fair to predict that all Nintendo-related Game Award nominees should be featured. Fire Emblem Fates and Monster Hunter Generations are both in the "Best Mobile / Handheld" category (the former also has a nod for the "Best Strategy" award), while Xenoblade Chronicles X is in with a shout for "Best RPG". Elsewhere, Pokkén Tournament is featured in the fighter category, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild is listed as one of the fan-picked "Most Anticipated" games - that obviously won't be included in the eShop sale as it's not out until next year, but we could potentially see other Zelda games getting discounts as a result.

The Game Awards 2016 take place on Thursday 1st December at the Microsoft Theatre, Los Angeles.
