TGS 2016: Splatoon Named Game of the Year

Nintendo’s breakout hit of 2015 Splatoon has been crowned game of the year at Toyko Game Show in Japan. Splatoon beat out games such as The Witcher 3 and Metal Gear Solid V to take the game of the year award.


Splatoon was first released in May of 2015 exclusively for the Wii U and has sold almost 5 million copies since its release. Splatoon was developed internally by a younger group of Nintendo employee’s hoping to make the shooter genre more accessible to a younger generation. It went on to become critically acclaimed and has won numerous awards, now including TGS Game of the Year.
