Did "Breath of the Wild" Deserve to Win Game of the Year?

Breath Of The Wild’s Second Major DLC Has A Bike And Releases Tonight Shannon Grixti

While accepting the Game of the Year award, game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi said, "I'm really happy I ended up making games".

In this second of two DLC packs that are part of the game's Expansion Pass, players are granted access to a large new adventure featuring a never before seen dungeon, new insights into the background of the game's four Champions, as well as a motorcycle called Master Cycle Zero, which allows players increased mobility when traversing Hyrule's varied landscapes, once they complete this new adventure.

Zelda: BotW was released in March 2017 on Nintendo's outgoing Wii U and its launching home and portable hybrid console, the Switch. Even more interesting is Mario is a lot more popular in North America than Zelda, and sales numbers prove that.

In addition, some of the games that were nominated for awards this year are from franchises featured in the Cyber Deals sale now featured in Nintendo eShop and at Nintendo.com.

The second major expansion to "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" surprise-launched overnight. On this rare occasion of Nintendo actually releasing a technically and artistically impressive game, it makes sense that fan campaigns have rallied around "Breath of the Wild" to carry it to victory.

A spokesperson for Gowdy's office did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday, nor did the lawyer who represents ACU Strategic Partners.

Forget everything you know about The Legend of Zelda games.

But how do you get your hands on this unique new item for Breath of the Wild?

Upon release, it was received as one of the best games in the 30-year-old Zelda franchise and therefore one of the best games of all time.

And Cuphead, the challenging retro-styled tribute to classic 1930s cartoons and the result of a 7-year development cycle steered by a small three-person team, walked away with Best Art Direction, Best Independent Game and Best Debut Indie Game. As an added bonus, Nintendo has indicated that it will release Amiibo for each of the champions.
