It’s that time of the year again where Geoff Keighley hosts The Game Awards and celebrates the Media of Video Games, whilst announcing the winners of select video game categories. Among the many World Premieres which, also included a rather surprising announcement for Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon. It was surprising in the sense that it had been a good few years since Bayonetta 2 and all of a sudden with have Bayonetta 3 last October and this new game coming March 17th, 2023.

Anyhow, Nintendo had several games nominated for multiple rewards and while they were snubbed for Game of the Year and best Role Playing Game for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (Curse you Elden Ring!), they did manage to snag four awards for Best Family Game, Best Multiplayer Game, Best Action Game and Most Anticipated Game.

The Winners for said categories are as follows:

  • Best Family Game – Kirby And The Forgotten Land
  • Best Multiplayer Game – Splatoon 3
  • Best Action Game – Bayonetta 3
  • Most Anticipated Game – The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Although it is neither developed nor published by Nintendo, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope by Ubisoft Milan did also get a reward for best Sim / Strategy Game. So, technically, five Nintendo Switch games won awards at TGA 2022 with four of them being published by Nintendo themselves.
