Among the nominated titles at the world’s largest gaming event, Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild wins Best Game at Gamescom Awards 2016.

Along with Nintendo’s upcoming Zelda title, the rest of the winners selected by an international jury in the various categories were finally announced, including the PlayStation VR for Best Hardware, Skylanders Imaginators for Best Family Game, and Ubisoft’s For Honor for Best Console PS4 Game.
