Famitsu proclaims Animal Crossing as GOTY

0

The New Horizons itself has also swept sales and tops a list with more than a dozen “million-sellers” in the land of the rising sun.

The Japanese magazine Famitsu has just celebrated its awards to commemorate the best games of the year (Famitsu Dengeki Game Awards) and Animal Crossing: New Horizons has risen as the great winner. A double victory, because in the latest issue of the magazine Nintendo’s title has also been crowned the best-selling Switch in its four years of life on the market.

The GOTY of Japan

As every year, the nominations for the Famitsu Dengeki Game Awards were the result of popular vote and, in addition to Animal Crossing, Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us: Part II, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin and Final Fantasy VII Remake were eligible for the jackpot. . None of them left empty-handed, and although Animal Crossing got the most recognition, The Last of Us was awarded for its script, Final Fantasy for its music (in addition to being awarded as the best RPG), Ghost of Tsushima for its graphics (also best action adventure) and Sakuna was recognized in categories such as revelation studio and indie game (not forgetting best action game).
