'Breath Of The Wild' Receives Top Honors At Tokyo Game Show

It shouldn't come as a shock that The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is going to be one of the primary game titles from 2017 that will start sweeping through award ceremonies and claim Game Of The Year awards. One of the most recent accolades the Nintendo Switch launch title picked up was from Tokyo Game Show this past weekend. The 2017 Japan Game Awards awarded the game the Grand Award, as well as an Award for Excellence. While Breath Of The Wild stood tall on the mountain, it didn't conquer all as Final Fantasy XV, Resident Evil 7, Persona 5, Overwatch, The Last Guardian, and Nioh were among top honorees, which we've listed for you below. And as a small note to the side, Detroit: Become Human,  Dragon Ball FighterZ, Fire Emblem Warriors, Monster Hunter World, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds were all named in the Future Division as games they expect to see on next year's list.
