Nintendo Labo Wins GOTY At The 2019 Games For Change Awards

Nintendo Labo

Nintendo Labo might not have been quite as successful in terms of sales as certain other first-party releases on the Switch, but it has certainly won plenty of awards since the original kits were launched in April last year.

Since then, it’s taken home two BAFTA awards and a GDC innovation award. Now, at the 2019 Games for Change Awards, it has received the Game of the Year Award. Ubisoft has also been recognised with an industry leadership award and GRIS was acknowledged for having the best gameplay. Below is the full list of winners, courtesy of Gamasutra:

  • Game of the Year Award – Nintendo Labo
  • Most Innovative Game – Tendar
  • Best Gameplay – GRIS
  • Most Significant Impact – Unicef Kid Power
  • Best Learning Game – Assassin’s Creed Discovery Tour
  • Best Student Game – Prism
  • Best XR For Change Experience – Homestay
  • People’s Choice Award Winner – Assassin’s Creed Discovery Tour
  • Industry Leadership Award – Ubisoft
  • Vanguard Award – Lindsay Grace

Nintendo most recently added the VR Kit to the Labo line and has also released multiple Toy-Con VR Goggles updates for existing games.

In June last year, Reggie Fils-Aimé said Labo had “absolutely” met Nintendo’s expectations and would continue to drive user engagement with the product, much like it did with Brain Age on the DS and Wii Fit on the Wii.

Congratulations to Nintendo and all the other winners.
