The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also won the awards for Best Game Direction and Best Action/Adventure Game.
Nintendo had quite a bit of news to get off its chest at The Game Awards and started the night by revealing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's second DLC, The Champions' Ballad, would be available to play starting tonight. This marks the very beginning of the main Champions' Ballad DLC quest, but it it's far from the only activity you can take on in the new DLC Pack 2. One of those Link's was a more realistic, bike-riding version of the character. Players who purchase the game in stores at a suggested retail price of $59.99 will receive a free download code for the original Bayonetta game.

Among other winners on the night, team action game Overwatch was released in 2016 but here returned to collect Best Ongoing Game and Best eSports Game, while Nintendo added three more to its tally via Best Family Game for Super Mario Odyssey, Best Strategy Game for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Best Handheld Game (a de facto Best 3DS Game category) for Metroid: Samus Returns.
Gamers were so excited by the announcement during the Game Awards, they forgot they were being broadcast from the west coast, so "tonight" wasn't fast enough.
The Game Awards also released a number of new trailers for upcoming titles including a teaser for Bayonetta 3 for the Switch, a cinematic trailer for famed video game auteur Hideo Kojima's next title Death Stranding, which once again featured actor Norman Reedus and a gameplay trailer for the next entry in Bandai Namco's long-running weapons-based fighting game, Soulcalibur VI. The first was called "The Master Trials", released in June 2017.
