The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Wins Gamescom 2016

At German gaming convention Gamescom this year, many games took center stage, but only one came out on top for the Gamescom Best of Gamescom award. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took that honor along with Best Nintendo Game of the Year.

Breath of the Wild got its first extensive look at this year’s E3 where it was one of two games shown during Nintendo’s Treehouse Live. Unlike at E3, Breath of the Wild was not playable at Gamescom, but a new video was presented focusing on the cooking mechanic in the game. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be coming to the Wii U and NX in 2017.

Gamescom will be open to public on August 22 and will end on the 26. The full list of winners at the convention can be viewed here.
