Mario Dominates The Game Awards 2017 Nominations; Full List Announced

The nominees for The Game Awards 2017 are in, with Mario leading the charge.

In total, everybody’s favourite pint-sized Italian is nominated for 11 awards across 4 different titles with Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and mobile hit Super Mario Run all up for various awards. Unsurprisingly, Super Mario Odyssey leads the way following its triumphant launch for Nintendo Switch on October 27th; but it’s not just the little Italian reaping the rewards of a fantastic year for Nintendo.

2017 also marked the return of Link, something that reflects throughout the list of nominees with Breath of the Wild recognised in 6 different categories including Game of the Year, Best Game Direction and Best Score. Other big winners on the list include Horizon Zero Dawn (7), Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (5), Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (5) and Persona 5 (4) all of which are nominated in multiple categories.
