Super Smash Bros. Ultimate More Fighters, More Battles, More Fun Nintendo Switch 0 11 Screenshot

Nintendo has received some extra recognition at the 8th annual New York video game awards, with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate being awarded the title of 2018's best fighting game and the Labo Variety Kit scoring best children's game.

The Motion Twin title Dead Cells took out the best indie award and the game of the year went to the PlayStation 4 exclusive, God of War. Red Dead Redemption 2 took out the awards for the best world and best writing and Jade Raymond - known as the Assassin's Creed franchise co-creator and founder of EA Motive and Ubisoft Toronto studios - took out the industry legend award.

Nintendo Labo has previously been acknowledged for its innovative ways, but Smash Bros. Ultimate hasn't been quite as widely recognised as it was released late in December. To view the full page of winners, head over to the New York Video Game Critics Circle website.
