Getting some limelight

The Game Awards 2016 took place last night and Nintendo scooped awards in three categories.

The phenomenon that is Pokémon GO won two awards - Best Mobile/Handheld and Best Family game - while Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was deemed to be the Most Anticipated upcoming title.

Blizzard's Overwatch was declared the Game of the Year, while Xenoblade Chronicles X missed out on the Best RPG award, with Witcher 3 scooping the title. In the Fighting game category, Pokkén Tournament lost out to Street Fighter V. The other big Nintendo nominees - Monster Hunter Generations and Fire Emblem Fates - were both in the Best Handheld category which was ultimately won by Pokémon GO.

Interestingly, no winner was chosen on the night from the "Best Fan Creation" category, which was narrowed down to just two nominations following the removal of Pokémon Uranium and AM2R's nominations.
