We didn’t get the Breath of the Wild 2 trailer we were all hoping for, but that doesn’t mean Nintendo fans left The Game Awards 2019 completely empty handed. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate walked away with the Best Fighting Game award at this year’s ceremony, beating out titles like Dead or Alive 6 and Mortal Kombat 11.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was also nominated for Best Family Game and Game of the Year, but lost out to Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, respectfully. Link’s Awakening on Switch was nominated for Best Action / Adventure Game and Best Art Direction, but lost out to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Control, respectfully. Lastly, Cadence of Hyrule was nominated for Best Score & Music, but lost out to Death Stranding.
Are you satisfied with Smash Bros.‘ Best Fighting Game win? Should it have won Game of the Year? Did Link’s Awakening deserve to win anything? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
