The nominations for The Game Awards 2019 are officially out, and The Legend of Zelda series is well-represented, with two games earning nominations! The Nintendo Switch remake of Link’s Awakening was nominated in two categories: Best Action/Adventure Game and Best Art Direction. Meanwhile, indie spinoff Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the Necrodancer ft. The Legend of Zelda earned a nomination for Best Score & Music. None of these nominations came as a surprise to me; the art style in Link’s Awakening has been roundly praised, and it is one of the best adventure games of all time in my opinion. Meanwhile, the remixed Zelda themes that drove the action in Cadence of Hyrule expertly walked the line between nostalgic and fresh. So swing by The Game Awards’ official website and cast your votes to show your support for these awesome Zelda games!
