Super Mario Odyssey Wins Best Of Show At E3 2017

Last year, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild won three awards from the Game Critics, which is composed of 38 global media outlets that vote on best games at E3. The awards it received were Best of Show, Best Console Game, and Best Action/Adventure Game.

Fast forward to now and it appears that history is repeating itself! Super Mario Odyssey has just received the exact same three awards: Best of Show, Best Console Game, and Best Action/Adventure Game. It appears we have an amazing experience waiting for us on October 27!

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle came away with two awards: Best Original Game and Best Strategy Game. This one really surprised us at E3 at how much fun it appears to be and it comes out in two months!

Finally, we were happy to see Metroid: Samus Returns winning the award for Best Handheld Game. This one looks to be something special and we can’t wait for it to arrive on September 15.
