Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes home award for best of gamescom

And the best of Wii U, obviously

Well, this sounds familiar. Nintendo is racking up the pre-release accolades for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It had already won Best of Show at E3 from the Game Critics Awards (and Destructoid’s Game of the Show, too). It has some new hardware for its mantle.

The gamescom 2016 awards were recently announced and, surprise surprise, Zelda took home the most coveted honor. There were plenty of worthy nominees (Final Fantasy XV, Horizon Zero Dawn, Battlefield 1, etc.) but Zelda was named the best of the best in Germany.
