It was a huge E3 for Nintendo this year and game critics agree. The annual post-E3 Game Critics Awards have been awarded and Nintendo has come away with a bunch of wins.

Super Mario Odyssey was chosen as “Best of E3 2017”, and also took away “Best Console Game” and “Best Action/Adventure Game”. Last year The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild won best of the show, it’s been a good couple of years for Nintendo.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle won Best Original Game and Best Strategy Game, meanwhile Metroid: Samus Returns picked up Best Handheld Game.
