Japan Game Awards 2020

Japan Game Awards is one of the most popular stage events in the annual Tokyo Game Show. And as we all know, for this year’s show, it was decided to be conducted online due to the pandemic. 

So, if you missed it, Japan’s Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association held the annual Japan Game Awards digitally over the weekend. All titles released from April 2019 until the end of March 2020 in Japan are qualified candidates for the JGA2020. 

And villagers, it is no doubt that Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons got the most prominent Grand Award as the best game. Aside from that, ACNH was also one of the ten Japanese games that received an Award for Excellence. But, that’s not all! The game also got the Minister of Economy title and got the Trade and Industry Award

For those who may not know, the Trade and Industry Award is given to those who made a great impact and contribution to the growth of the Japanese games industry.

New Horizons is not your ordinary game. It is a game that challenges your creativity, your strategy on how to build up your life, and how to live a fun and peaceful life with everybody. It is indeed a game for all ages. 

In fact, CESA said that New Horizons “showed the power of entertainment from Japan, acquiring overwhelming support from many users of all ages, from children to senior citizens.”

Ooh, I imagine Tom Nook and Isabelle would be really glad. Yes, yes!
